The new coach of Barcelona is very clear about the current team situation. After a very struggling win against Ibiza, Quique said that he is not happy with the performance.
Quique Setien was not impressed with his squad’s performance
Before the cup match, Setien noted that Pique and Messi would get a rest. Journalists asked him about Messi’s thoughts on rest, and the coach noted that rest is essential, and he could easily convince Messi in this.
Quique Setien was not happy after the match. He met with journalists after the game and said that the team played poorly. At the same time, Quique mentioned that everything could go differently, and they may have lost the match. Overall, the result is very acceptable for Quique as he wants to improve every week.
The chance that Antoine Griezmann used
It’s been hard for Griezman to adopt the style of Barcelona. He was excellent in Simeone’s strategy as he had to attack and defend at the same time. Currently, Griezman is more active, defending than attacking and scoring goals. Yesterday he got a chance to prove that he is a good striker.
Quique Setien decided to user Griezmann from the start of the match. 1st half was not successful for Barca in general, but Antoine could turn things around in the second half. Antoine could score two goals against Ibiza in the second half and qualified his team for the next round.
Only three shots on target after more than 750 passes
Barcelona had no chance on goal until the 67th minute. The club could not create a moment for a serious shot on target. Keep in mind that Quique said that Ibiza was excellent from the start until the end of the match.
Spanish coach mentioned Ibiza’s quality performance. Barcelona’s new coach said that Ibiza deserves the credit because they have fought till the end of the game. Unfortunately to Ibiza’s fans, Griezmann was able to score a goal on 94th minute and advance team into the next level.
