It’s the first day off for Barcelona player after the Quique Setien’s appointment. He is a new coach in Barcelona, but he can’t brag with excellent results.
What’s wrong with Quique Setien’s strategy?
As the Spanish coach said, Barcelona players needed a rest. It was essential to have a day off and enjoy the off-pitch life. Quique Setien was furious after the match against Valencia. The coach noted that some players might not understand the strategy, and it could be related to term misunderstandings. Although, Quique said that Barcelona players are doing a good job. If Lionel Messi could convert even one shot on target into the goal, then there would be a different scenario. Barcelona’s players got the day off for the first time since Valverde’s departure. There is still drama going on between Barcelona players and coaching staff. So, the team needs to calm down and get the situation sorted as soon as possible.
What’s the main problem with Barcelona’s performance?
The main issue is, indeed, the lack of goals. The team can’t come up with goal-scoring moments, although they have more than 75% ball possession. Barcelona can control the ball and match at any part of the game, but all in vain. The team can’t transform the ball possession into goals, and that’s the most significant issue currently
Keep in mind that Luis Suarez, the central striker of Barcelona, is injured. Uruguayan player got hurt during the Supercopa tournament in Jeddah. It’s believed that Luis Suarez won’t be able to play until the end of March 2020. Barcelona can’t keep up for two months without a central striker, so they have to sign a new player.
Quique Setien wants to sign Rodrigo Moreno from Valencia. If that option fails, then Blaugrana management will try to sign Martinez from Inter Milan. Barcelona’s authorities have to act fast as the January transfer window will be closed in 5 days.
