At the end of the season, FC Barcelona and Quique Setien are going their separate ways. Only titles could save the coach.

FC Barcelona plans according to information from SPOX and Goalto fire his head coach Quique Setien at the end of the season. Setien could only have a future at Camp Nou if they won the championship or Champions League and significantly increased their play.

The 61-year-old Spaniard, who only took over the coaching position at Barca in January from the fired Ernesto Valverde, has lost the trust of the stars around Lionel Messi. In addition, those responsible for sport are also dissatisfied with the recent performances of the LaLiga runners-up.

Barca: Messi and Co. not happy with Setien’s tactics

Messi and Co. cannot identify with Setien’s tactical ideas and are also critical of their coach’s statements to the press. In addition, Setien’s training is too lax for players – similar to what Real Madrid stars once criticized under Rafa Benitez – and his assistant coach Eder Sarabia is very unpopular in the cabin.

Barca has rarely been convincing, especially in terms of play, and has lost the lead in LaLiga to Real Madrid. After the 2-2 draw at Celta Vigo on Saturday, the six days before the end of the game, the Catalans have even lost two points behind the royal team and also lost the direct comparison with the Zidane team.

Already in January Setien had not been Barca’s first choice as Valverde’s successor, only whether Ronald Koeman and Xavi’s rejection won the contract.

Barcelona’s former midfield strategist Xavi, who is currently training Qatari club Al Sadd, has now positioned himself for the coaching job at Blaugrana: “The greatest wish I currently have is to be the coach of Barca,” he said 40-year-old Spaniard from the newspaper Sport quoted.

Setien had signed a contract in January until summer 2022. Should Barca win neither LaLiga nor Champions League, his engagement with the reigning Spanish champions will probably have ended after this season.
