Former Barcelona boss Quique Setien has said that he is yet to be relieved by the club!
The club hired Setien on the back of sacking Ernesto Valverde. What seemed to be a well thought move to carry forward the Barcelona legacy of football, turned out to be a disaster.
Setien did not carry any experience of managing big teams and lost the dressing room. His term culminated with Barcelona losing the La Liga despite being in the lead when he took over and also with a 8-2 hammering in the hands of the imperial Bayern Munich.
However, what has transpired is even worse now with Setien openly admitting that the club are yet to officially relieve him from his duties, or offer him his compensation despite appointing a new coach in charge!
“Barca have not compensated me, nor have they offered me anything,” Setien told COPE’s El Partidazo show. “They have not even called me to tell me that I am dismissed.
“It’s evident that the club is going through a worrying moment, something that when you arrive is clearly perceived and which directly affects sports performance.
“You always believe that from within you may be able to help solve it, but for us, despite putting everything on our side, it has been impossible.”
Mismanagement yet again from the Bartomeu administration!
