Before the match against Getafe, Barcelona coach met with journalists. Spanish journalists asked him questions about the upcoming game in La Liga, Champions League, etc.
Signing new striker
Quique Setien said that Barcelona is ready for a new striker. As you may know, Luis Suarez got injured three weeks ago and he will be out for the next two months. Uruguayan players will be back in action by the end of April. Another attacking line player, Ousmane Dembele, got an injury in January. As of now, Barcelona has only one striker in the squad who is healthy and ready to play. La Liga gave Barcelona an exception to sign striker from Spanish football divisions, and he will be able to play only in La Liga.
Barcelona’s coach wants to sign a new striker, and it’s a clear message to management. Quique Setien said that he would be ready to welcome a new striker from any Spanish club. Journalists believe that Barcelona may sign Real Sociedad striker.
Winning La Liga this season
Setien said that Real Madrid and Barcelona have the same chance to win La Liga. Three point difference is not a big deal as Teams have to play Clasico in three weeks. Quique Setien believes that Barcelona can win the current La Liga tournament.
Problems in the defensive line
Quique Setien said that there is no problem in the defensive line. Spanish coach wants to correct the current defensive line, but there is no serious issue. At the same time, Quique Setien intends to confirm that Umtiti and Pique are ready to play in the next matches.
Spanish coach mentioned the match against Real Betis. Quique said that Fekir, who is creating a three-four chance in every game, could not create severe issues against Barcelona’s defensive line. Although, Quique admitted that he would try to improve things not only in defence but also in the attacking line of the team.
