The truce forced by Messi between the players, the coaching staff and the leaders of Barcelona added to the win that the team gave to Alaves means that Quique Setién can relax for at least a week.
The Cantabrian coach will coach the Catalan team until the end of the season, which does not have much left either and could be a single match if they lose against Napoles. Unless they are champions in the Champions League, Setien could be without job next year. The poor image given in many games has really touched the coach, who has been left with very few defenders at the Catalan club. Most of the managers of the entity and fans already consider him sentenced.
Setién has three weeks to prepare the crossing against the Gattuso team, champion of the Italy Cup. It would be essential to get that victory to not finish the season blank and then worry about the following. The coach knows well how much is played, not only at a strictly sporting level. His position is in danger. Playing the final phase of the Champions League in Lisbon would allow him to get some air and try to win more followers of his continuity. Although even so it is very difficult to be the Barça coach of the 20-21.
Barcelona has always won at least one title since the 07-08 campaign and with the questioned coach even by Messi’s dog, Barcelona is having a very difficult time this year.
The arrival of ex player of Betis has not meant the turn that the leaders expected, neither at the level of the game nor of results, when in January they stopped Ernesto Valverde, who, at least, had the support of the footballers.
Setien needs a miracle to win the Champions League and a bigger miracle to continue leading Barcelona the next season, Xavi is already spoken of as a substitute in the Culés offices.
