Before the match against Levante, Quique Setien met with journalists and talked about the upcoming game. The Spanish coach was pleased with the previous results and answered many questions.
Lionel Messi must be happy
Quique Setien noted that the biggest goal for him is to make sure that Messi stays longer in Barcelona. As it seems, Barcelona’s attacking player is very disappointed with the previous results. Barcelona sacked Ernesto Valverde three weeks ago because of bad results. At the same time, Barcelona is not brilliant under Quique Setien.
Lionel Messi wanted to leave the team back in the summer of 2019. Back in September, Lionel admitted that the family wanted to leave Catalonia for good. Barcelona could not even sign Neymar and Messi was very angry about the decision. As you may know, Brazilian forward and Messi are excellent friends.
Quique Setien wants Messi to be happy. During the press conference, the Spanish coach admitted that Messi is already feeling good, and they should keep up with him. The team is getting ready for La Liga match against Levante. Quique said that Messi is the best player in the world, and why would someone want to lose a player like him?
Signing Neymar in summer of 2020
Rumors suggest that Neymar will re-join Barcelona in the summer of 2020. Quique said that Neymar is a brilliant player. Brazilian players can decide the outcome of any match. Setien wants to watch Neymar and Messi playing every day, and he is ready to train Neymar along with Messi.
Match against Athletic Bilbao
As you may know, Barcelona will face Athletic Bilbao in away match. It’s a quarter-final of Copa Del Rey, and both teams understand that match will be very tough. Quique said that a one-match tie is good enough to motivate the player to perform like never before. Everything depends on one game, and we will see a better version of Barcelona.
