Barcelona coach Quique Setien is optimistic about the continuation of the season and the success of his team.
In the Champions League, Barça drew with Napoli (1: 1) in the first match of the round of 16, and Setien believes that his team can reach the very end of this competition.
“I never doubted the squad we have and I have no doubt that we can win all that remains, but not by playing in the way we were playing,” Messi, who has won four Champions League titles, told Sport .
“Now, everyone has their opinion and they are all very respectable. Mine is based on the fact that I was lucky to play in the Champions League every year and I know that it is not possible to win it by playing as we have been playing.”
Setien, though, believes that he could crown his debut season as coach at Camp Nou with the trophy and insisted that his view was shared by the rest of the Barca dressing room.
“Messi’s words I think have created a big debate,” the Barca coach explained to BeinSports. We are convinced that we can win the Champions League. We have to improve some things, but without a doubt we are convinced that the team has the potential to win the Champions League.
“We can win it. We are convinced we can win the Champions League, of course we can.”
The championship in Spain will be extended on June 8 without the presence of fans.
At Barça, they hope to reach the championship title. They currently have a two-point advantage over Real Madrid.
