Setien don’t feel threatened at all after the three drew in four games
Quique Setien was not in the mood to talk about his future after the last run of Barcelona against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday. The Catalans drew for the third time in four games, giving Real Madrid a considerable advantage in the title race before playing against Getafe. “I don’t feel threatened at all,” Setien said later, answering a question about his situation. Looking at the result and the game as a whole, Setien admitted that his side is fighting. “It’s a shame,” he mused, “we have more and more difficulties. Leaving these points behind, we are moving further from the title. But we must continue to work, and Atletico are a good team.”
Riqui Puig got a start at Camp Nou, as Setien tried to surprise Diego Simeone. “We tried to do different things,” he explained. “We thought we would win. Atletico” defends very well, closes the space, and takes you to himself. Even despite dropping points again, Setien was not overly disappointed with the performances of his players. “I am quite pleased with them,” he said. “Indeed, we could not win, but at times they controlled the game well. It’s not easy against this team. They are disciplined. I am quite pleased with the work of my players.”
