Quique Setien lost the first match as the coach of Barcelona. Lionel Messi and teammates could not come-back against Valencia and missed a significant chance to go ahead of Real Madrid.
Quique Setien is not happy with results
As it seems, Barcelona’s coach was furious after the match. During the press conference, the coach said that he still believes in Barcelona’s squad, and the team will be back on a winning streak soon.
Quique Setien said that Barcelona had the worst first half. Blaugrana’s players could not keep up with Valencia, and it was hard to mark up the attacking line of the host team. Quique said that it is hard to be impressed by Barcelona’s performance in the first 45 minutes. Spanish coach noted that the team would have a serious meeting where they will discuss the first half and understand the main failures.
Setien thinks that Valencia clearly deserved more in the first half. It was a bit of great luck that Blaugrana had not conceded any goals in the first half. The team should be thankful to Ter Stegen.
What’s the main issue currently for Barcelona?
Quique Setien said that there could be two problems. The problem is either misunderstanding or players that can’t do specific tasks in high quality. Keep in mind that Quique was furious said that he believes that most of Barcelona’s players can’t do certain things. It’s hard to follow the Tiki-Taka system, and some players will have to leave the team in the summer of 2020.
Another thing that could be related to misunderstanding. It’s only been two weeks since Quique became the leading coach of Barcelona. Coach believes that players may not be ready for a different strategy. Quique said that coaches would do everything to explain theories again. Quique wants every player to understand the central philosophy of Barcelona in-depth.
As it seems, Barcelona’s players will have an exciting month ahead. Quique Setien is trying to implement a new strategy and philosophy that’s more related to Barcelona than the previous playing plan.
