[Quique Setien at his first official press conference as Barcelona head coach] Yesterday I was walking around by the cows in my town, and now today I’m at the Ciutat Esportiva in Barcelona coaching the best players in the world.

[Barca’s manager Quique Setien might have to play Fati more in the second half of the season because of the long-term injury to Luis Suarez] The first thing we are doing is seeing the players in different positions. [Fati] has a lot of talent. We will see how he progresses. He will get more starting time as long as he keeps developing

[Setien aiming to exploit Fati’s great potential at Barcelona] I think that Ansu is a boy that is emerging, that we all know that has great potential. You have to understand that you have to give him peace of mind and confidence to exploit what he has inside. Apart from the two goals, what I give credit is the work he has done in defence. He has worked hard. He has given us solutions.

[Setien was satisfied with his side’s performance, although he expects further improvement] I am happy with many things, but not with everything. We have given up too many shots. We made a very good first half, I think we could score more goals. We lost a little control in the second half and conceded too much. But it was a good job by the team

[Barcelona boss Quique Setien is still in the hunt for a new striker but will need authorisation before he can pursue any deal] It’s obvious we need another attacker, there are several names on the table but it depends on many things. First of all, we will need authorisation

[supporters can expect to see more of young attacker Alex Collado but Setien admitted Riqui Puig’s first-team chances could be limited this season] They are two very different kind of players. We try to think which player we need most at certain times of the game. They’re two very good players and they’ve both got chances to play. We’re getting to know them better every day. We’re seeing what they’re capable of doing for us in every training session. It’s a time of learning. With Riqui there are a lot of players in the position where he would normally play but Collado, playing up front, he’s going to get chances. We’ll have to see how things go

[As he prepared for Sunday’s trip to face his former club Real Betis, he reflected on the positive aspects of that game and indicated he is hopeful of ending a three-game winless run on the road in La Liga] It’s about the dynamic of how this team has been playing away from home for some time,” Setien said. “The other day I thought we improved a lot but unfortunately the result didn’t go our way. We need to try to take the good conclusions from that game and it’s a question of getting back out onto the pitch, playing another game. There’s not much time to dwell on your sorrows at this club. You need to be fresh and lucid. We’ve improved a lot. We’re seeing continuity but the three points are important because we want to be chasing for the title until the end. It’s time to ratify the improvement in the cup at a really difficult ground. We were hurt by losing the cup game but we’ve learned a lot from it

[Barcelona manager Quique Setien tells about his career dreams and goals] I have told the players many times that I don’t have time to lose, and I’d like to win both the Champions League and La Liga. Of course I’ve dreamed of winning these titles, and having a walk in Liencres [his hometown] among the cows with the Champions League and La Liga trophies in my hands

[Coutinho hasn’t played for Bayern since the Bundesliga restarted in May due to an ankle injury. And though his undoubted talent has been there in flashes – one performance against Werder Bremen in December stands out - there is little desire, either from within the club or among the fans, to pursue a permanent transfer this summer] In principle he’s a Barcelona player

[Top scorer Messi had a thigh problem] He’s doing perfectly and will not have any problem

[On Suarez] He is better than we expected. But the question is how ready he is after so long out and whether he is ready to start

[Barcelona head coach Quique Setien has confirmed that both Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez are fit to start Sunday’s Primera Division encounter with Mallorca on Sunday] Suarez is ready to be a starter, but he will not be able to play for the full 90 minutes. We’ll not take risks with him after five months, but it will be good for him to play and he will need games to be as strong as before his injury. Messi is there to play, he is perfectly fine. He has trained well and there is no problem

Messi and many of these players know how to slow down when necessary. For some players, the longer they are on the pitch, the better

[The former Betis boss thinks that his side are well primed to attack the last 11 matches of the season, with Barca holding a two-point advantage over Real Madrid at the top of the league] I think this break has been good for us, especially in everyone’s mind. It has given us time for reflection and analysis that has been very good for us, but other teams have also been able to do that. Real Mallorca have been able to freshen up themselves to bring their best level. There are many things that can happen. We’ll see if we will be better or remain the same

[Barcelona head coach Quique Setien has held discussions with Arthur over the midfielder’s future, but is counting on him for the remainder of the season] It is true that we have talked about something, but not too much. The current circumstances are different from the usual ones and will affect the market. As for the players, I am clear that all those who are currently in the squad, I count on them and I need everyone because there are going to be many games. On outside speculation, I choose not to speak

[Messi’s fitness was a major concern ahead of the resumption] He’s ready to play, he’s perfectly okay. He’s trained well, there is no problem. Messi and a lot of these players know how to gauge things and how to save their strength when necessary. As for breaks, we’ll see. For some, the more time they’re on the pitch, the better. Surely he is to be a starter, but not for the full 90 minutes. We will not take risks after five months. It will be good for him to play and he will need games to be the same as he was before
