Quique Setien has officially left his position as the manager of Villarreal CF after just one win and three losses in the first four games of the season. Setien’s departure marks the end of a brief and challenging tenure with the La Liga club.
Setien’s appointment as Villarreal’s manager generated excitement and curiosity among fans and pundits alike. The former Barcelona boss was renowned for his tactical prowess and possession-based style of play. However, his time at Villarreal was far from what he and the club had hoped for.
The season got off to a rocky start for Villarreal under Setien’s guidance. Despite securing a thrilling victory in their opening match, the team quickly stumbled, suffering three consecutive losses. The bad performances on the pitch and growing frustration among supporters ultimately led to the decision to part ways with Setien.
