Barcelona Football Manager Quique Setien said he was «happy with the win» after they beat Espanyol 1-0, while speaking to the press in Barcelona on Wednesday.
Setien said, «I think today we were definitely not brilliant» adding, «it was a difficult match we managed to win it and we would all like to repeat the same match as we played against Villarreal but that is just not easy.»
Setien said the match was very different to their match against Villarreal, who they beat 4-1.
«Villarreal is a team which likes to have the ball and knows how to keep possession and that sometimes generates spaces» unlike Espanyol who played with a lot of «defensive intensity.»
He underlined, «It is very difficult because you have to be very precise, it is very difficult to move around in such reduced spaces, today was not our day.»
During the match Ansu Fati was sent off, Setien said, «he will be affected by this. We don't know what the punishment is, but it is a play where I don't give him any sort of fault.»
