Quique Setien has openly stated that he is fearing for his job at FC Barcelona. The Spanish manager told in a post match press conference that he does not know if he will be coaching the club when the Champions League returns in August. Barcelona failed to impress against minnows Osasuna on Thursday, losing 2-1 at home.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid claimed their 34th La Liga trophy by beating Villarreal 2-0. After Barcelona’s loss the Blaugrana’s have dropped seven points behind their arch rivals, despite going into the return of Spanish football with a two point lead. Setien has taken full responsibility for losing the championship and now he is fearing his job.
“I hope to be the Barcelona coach in the Champions League but I don’t know”, Setien told the reporters. Barcelona will resume the European tournament in August with the return match in the round of 16 against Napoli after a 1-1 draw in Naples. Lionel Messi was also unhappy with Barcelona’s form in 2020, stating that they made it easy for Madrid to win the La Liga.
