Quique Setién has his place secured, for now, in the Barcelona. After a series of rumors that spoke of his departure after losing the fight for The League against Real Madrid, President Josep Maria Bartomeu came out to back him up. And he did it quoting Arturo vidal.
The head of the Blaugrana team assured Sports diary than “When we hired him, we explained to him that it was a project for this season and all the following. Measuring a coach for a few months, with a pandemic in between, is very difficult. Arturo Vidal already said it, they have had little time to get to know each other and work“.
Bartomeu also ruled out that a new coach for Barça has been sought. “At no time did we think of a change of coach. I know that some information came out saying that if he didn’t win two games we would exchange him for ‘Pimi’, but that was never discussed. Not with Abidal, not with Plans or on the board of directors. Setien is our coach“.
“We have not spoken to anyone. Not with Laurent Blanc or with anyone. I do speak to Xavi because we have a good relationship, but he recently renewed with his team“insisted the president.
That did make clear that the historic flyer, which for now breaks it in the Qatar’s Al-Sadd, you will have your chance in the future. “Xavi will come one day to train at Barça. And he will decide when“.
