Barcelona coach has discussed everything ranging from Xavi to CoVID-19 to Neymar!
Setien discussed the possibility of Xavi coming to Nou Camp first.
“When Xavi comes, we will open the door for him and we will let him enter. I have thought of calling Xavi to ask for his assistance. He knows this club and he knows the philosophy and style of this team.
Quique also spoke about Coronavirus and the current situation.
“To be honest, what’s happening is unbelievable. I start to coach Barcelona and then a disaster hits us. In the last few days, I have read more about the coronavirus than football.
“We all want to finish the season even if it’s behind closed doors. But I want guarantees that no problems will occur. I hope two weeks of training is enough for the players to get ready for playing matches again.
Setien discussed the situation at La Masia as well.
“No player from La Masia has convinced me that he deserves a spot in the first team. I’m not equivocal when it comes to assessing players from the academy. I’ll give the youngsters a chance when I can count on them to win games.
He finally wrapped up by talking about possible signings in Martinez and Neymar.
“I’m neither pessimistic nor optimistic about Lautaro. I admire great players and I have no delusions with any player.
“I see Neymar’s arrival quite complicated. I think it’s financially difficult for him to arrive at such a difficult time.
