Setien assures Barcelona will improve

A Lionel Messi inspired Barcelona scrapped past Real Betis 3-2 last night.

As the poor performances in general continue, their boss Setien has called for patience claiming that the Catalans will improve.

“I really liked the team,” Barca head coach Setien said of his side, who are three points behind leaders Real Madrid. “There are things we could have done better, but I’m happy. We have come from behind twice.

“The team is improving in many things and I am very happy with the performance, the result and everything. We are still missing things, though.

“You have to enjoy the win because Betis are a great team, who were playing at home.”

“We have improved a lot [in defence],” he added. “There are always some imbalances in the way we play, but I am quite happy with the defensive attitude of the team.

“In the second half, I don’t think we granted them a chance on goal.”

The match had special focus on Real Betis striker Loren Moron. He has been linked with a move to Barcelona. However, their president Haro has revealed that no such bid has been made.

“They have been linked, but they haven’t enquired or made a formal offer for him,” he told Movistar.

“There is talk of the player, but not in a serious way. It would be if we had an offer for the player, which we don’t.”
