Real Betis appoint Quique Setien with a three-year deal Last Updated: 26/05/17 1:34pm Quique Setien is the new manager of Real Betis Real Betis have appointed former Las Palmas boss Quique Setien as their new head coach. Real Betis announced the deal after Setien had spent a highly successful two-year era in charge of UD Las Palmas. The 58-year-old Spaniard from Santander has now signed a three-year contract with the Andalusian side that sacked both Victor Sanchez del Amo and Gus Poyet last season. Setien on the other hand guided Las Palmas to 14th place during his second season with Los Amarillos. Setien began his managerial career at Racing Santander but made his name during a six-year spell in charge of Segunda Division side Lugo. In 2015 he took charge of Las Palmas and finished his first season with them with 11th place finish in the La Liga. Las Palmas started the season 16/17 brightly under Setien but eventually slumped to 14th place. A club statement welcomed Setien to the Benito Villamarin: "Real Betis Balompie has signed Quique Setien as the new manager for the next three seasons. "The Cantabrian joins the green and whites until June 2020. "With the arrival of Setien, the Real Betis bet on a style of play that is close to what the Betis fans demand." It is highly anticipated that Manolo Márquez will be the one replacing Setien as the manager of UD Las Palmas at Estadio Gran Canaria. Márquez has previously worked as the manager of UD Las Palmas reserve team, UD Las Palmas Atlético.
