New Barcelona boss Quique Setien is targeting silverware after landing his dream job at the Camp Nou.

The 61-year-old replaced Ernesto Valverde in the dugout on Monday, signing a contract until 2022.

The move came four days after the loss to Atlético Madrid in the semifinals of the Spanish Super Cup, a result that significantly increased pressure on Valverde.

The club said it reached an agreement with Valverde to terminate his contract.

Setién, a 61-year-old Spaniard who used to be a midfielder for Atlético Madrid, is known for setting up teams that often mimicked Barcelona’s attacking-minded style.
