Setien: 'Pjanic a great player'

Barcelona boss Quique Setien says his club wants Miralem Pjanic because he is a ‘great player’ and is ‘happy’ to still have Arturo Vidal at his disposal.

Pjanic has emerged as a top target for Barca in recent weeks, and Setien made it clear he was a big fan of the Juventus midfielder.

“I always say that I like all great players,” he told beIN Sports.

“Pjanic’s a great player, although there are also great players that we see in the newspapers every day.”

Vidal has been heavily linked with making way for the 30-year-old and moving to Inter, but the coach would rather he stayed put.

“He’s a player who certainly has positive qualities and brings positive energy.

“He’s a great player in terms of performance and behaviour and we’re happy to have him with us.”
