Barca faces problems with Setien at the head

Barcelona have been experiencing their most challenging spell since Quique Setien became the head coach at Camp Nou. Not only because Real Madrid can regain leadership at the top of LaLiga and track two points if they beat Espanyol in Cornella on Sunday night, but also because of the bad relationship between Setien and Barcelona players. It is not new to us, it is what has been evident since the appointment of the 61-year-old. And now he has reached its peak with a draw with Barcelona’s at Celta Vigo. At the end of the match in the dressing room of Barcelona between the players and Setien began a tense discussion. One could already see that things were going badly after the statements made by Luis Suárez in the post-match on the Estadio de Balaidos, in which he pointed out to the coaching staff why Barcelona was disappointed away from home.

In Vigo’s dressing room, the players blamed the coach for some of his tactical decisions. As well as for some of the tactical changes he made in the game against Celta, such as bringing on Arthur Melo and Antoine Griezmann. The talk was very intense, according to some sources, and comes to the demonstration that there is no harmony between the players and the coaching staff. The players do not agree with some coach methods and begin to understand that if they continue in this way, they will not win titles. It was also one of the reasons why the composition made their coach appreciate their feelings, given that there is still time to turn the tide, although Real Madrid have the upper hand.
