With the title all but out of Barcelona’s hand, Quique Setien would do well to look past it now.
However, the coach is adamant to train the team for the rest of the La Liga as well as they can in case Real slip up. When asked about Real, Setien appeared less than interested.
“It is not our business. We have to worry about ourselves,” the Barca head coach told Movistar. “What Madrid does we will see.”
“We did not have a great match. They have made it difficult for us in defence,” he said. “We have not found spaces nor have we had precision to handle ourselves.”
Setien’s emotion was echoed by Luis Suarez as well.
“What we have to do is win our next three games,” Suarez said. “Whatever Madrid do is up to them.
“If the rival drops points then fantastic, we have to think about being there if they do.”
Suarez added: “We knew it was going to be difficult. We knew their situation. We have to be aware of the fact that we put in a great performance on Sunday and were still feeling the consequences of that physically. The important thing is to win and to get three more points.
“I think if I didn’t score in the first half or Barcelona didn’t create more chances, that’s virtue of the rival, who were very well organised.
“I think they make it difficult for Nelson Semedo and Jordi Alba to push up on the flanks. But eventually the chance came and I’m delighted to be able to take it.”
