SEVILLE, Spain (AP) - Real Betis says Quique Setien has signed a three-year contract to coach the Spanish club.

Setien will join a club that fired Victor Sanchez del Amo and Gus Poyet last season.

The 58-year-old Setien coached Las Palmas for the previous two seasons. After taking over near the start of the 2015-16 season, Las Palmas recovered under Setien and finished in 10th place.

Las Palmas enjoyed an excellent start to last season but finished 14th, one spot above Betis.
