Barca should sack Quique Setien before the UCL returns in August
Former Barcelona striker Rivaldo believes the Blaugrana should consider dismissing Quique Setien before the Champions League returns in August. The Catalans have yet to face Napoli in the second leg of their last 16 ties. While at the moment, the score is tied with a score of 1-1 after the first game in Italy. “There is a real risk of losing to Napoli,” Rivaldo said in an interview. “As an ex-Barcelona footballer and an Azulgrana fan, I worry about this game, and I think most Cules share that feeling. With Barcelona in a wrong way, with their mood, no fans, and with Italians throwing their weight around, I believe, will be very difficult. The big question that Barcelona has on the table is whether there should be a change of coach in front of the Champions League and, frankly, I think it is a problem for president Bartomeu.
Everyone is disappointed with Setien’s work
“I think Bartomeu should think about it. The fans and the press are disappointed with Setien’s work and his image of the game. Which confirms the idea that changes should be made right now”. For Rivaldo, Barcelona should adjust their priorities before this summer’s transfer window and focus on Neymar’s move, not Lautaro Martinez. “Lautaro Martinez’s release clause has recently expired. So Inter can now ask for more money to sell him, and they want to extend his contract and keep him in the club,” Rivaldo said. “For this reason, I think Barcelona should refocus on signing Neymar this summer. According to the latest news, Leonardo may now be interested in negotiating the move of the Brazilian star from PSG. I believe that Neymar’s accession to Lionel Messi would help Barcelona again become that incredible team that won many titles a few years ago.
“Neymar would be the best possible signing for Barcelona. He will cheer up the lineup and provide a good alternative for resolving matches, letting Messi rest from time to time.”
