Villarreal DT explains why Brereton didn’t come on in Villarreal defeat: ‘It wasn’t necessary’

Despite losing to Real Betis in one of the last games of the game, Quique Setién assured that he wasn’t wrong with the changes he made against Manuel Pellegrini’s side.

Ben Brereton didn’t see any minutes in the Villarreal defeat. The team led by Quique Setién started the season on the wrong foot, losing to Manuel Pellegrini’s Real Betis. The game was 1-1, but on the fifth minute more, Willian José scored the last goal. The national gunner was on the bench.

Despite the fall, the Yellow Submarine coach justified the changes he made and assured that those who did not enter would not have made a difference. “Those who were there might just be doing just fine and I don’t begin to think now who didn’t come in. But if he had seen the need for himself or someone else to come in, he would have,” said he said.

The coach was consulted for the specific case of the attacker, something that was not taken the right way. “It’s the same reason why other players who could have entered did not enter: we understood that it was not necessary,” he explained.

The Spaniard regretted the loss as he considers they played better than the Sevilla side. “We were superior in the second half, but it’s true that we lacked inspiration to better manage the ball in the last meters. We had them in their camp in the second half, but in the end it couldn’t have been the case,” he said.

Despite the latter, he acknowledged that the changes gave the rival team a new air. “The truth is that I was warning in this final stretch. With the changes they had brought in fresh people and dangerous players, so I saw the danger. They managed to come out two or three times and beat our dominance,” he said.

Despite the fact that the pre-season results weren’t the best at Villarreal, Setien assures he’s happy with the team’s formation. “I’m happy with what I have and I think they’re going to give us a very good performance. . I think we have to wait and draw conclusions as the championship progresses,” he said.
