Setien confident of Barcelona backing him for Champions League

Immediately after losing the league, Barcelona coach Quique Setien had set his own future on doubt.

‘I am responsible for our situation, as I am the manager of the team,’ Setien had said, as per quotes from Marca.

‘I hope we will face the Champions League this summer as a different team, but I am not sure about what happens next for me.

‘I agree with the post match comments from Lionel Messi about self-criticism, and we must look at ourselves in the coming weeks.’

He has now revealed that he remains on a good term with Lionel Messi and hopes to change Barcelona’s lack of silverware under him in the Champions League. 

“It is the same as with everyone, more or less,” Setien said. “There are players who are more open and have more of a relationship, but the relationship is good.”

“It is true, that we have had a deep reflection on the situation,” Setien said.

“We are all excited about the Champions League. It is true that we have spoken and it has served us well, because some things have been cleaned up.

“It is something that has been backed up with this game and with this result, which will allow us to face the future with more confidence and in a different state of mind.”

“I focus on improving and convincing my players to do certain things,” Setien said, quoted by Catalan newspaper Sport. “Then there are things that I can’t control.”
