Setien must find a recipe to do something new
Barcelona slipped from the top of the LaLiga standings. Their football under the leadership of Quique Setien did not impress several fans and pundits. Especially Rivaldo, who believes that the Spanish coach needs to try something new. Luis Suarez’s return to action didn’t have much impact. And this suggests that Martin Braithwaite looked more easily in Setien’s system than Antoine Griezmann. “Barcelona should improve their football, and it depends on the manager, Setien has to find a recipe to do something new,” Rivaldo explained in an interview. “He needs to find a system to take advantage of the quality of the players at his disposal. Of course, recent games make everyone doubt the advance, because we’re used to seeing another Barcelona.”
When they pressed on the recent Los Cules form, the former Barcelona striker suggested that a long break in action could affect the Catalan club. “I want to believe that recent mediocre performances are the result of those strange times we live in,” Rivaldo revealed. “I hope that in the next two or three games they will improve their level of play. Ansu Fati and Riqui Puig have been regularly used this season, and it looks like they will be key members of the Setien’s team in the upcoming matches, which Rivaldo called for caution. “These guys are crucial to the squad and have a bright future. But I don’t think they can make a difference,” Rivaldo confirmed.
“The responsibility should lie with veterans, those with more experience, and they should give more. I read in the press that they have many players over 30, but I do not believe that is a problem.”
