It follows the exchange of impressions between Leo Messi and Quique Setién about the possibilities that has the FC Barcelona to proclaim champion of the Champions League. The Argentinian forward and the Cantabrian technician consider that the culés can be champions of Europe, but both coincide in that they have to improve some appearances of the game so that there are possibilities.

In an interview conceded to 'beIN Sports USES' collected by the newspaper Sport, Quique Setién answered to the last words of Messi, that had ensured that "the technician misunderstood what said or explained him badly what wanted to say. I what said is that playing as we came playing the last parties before the stop seemed clear that did not reach us to win the Champions".

"It is necessary to improve some things, but are convinced to be able to to win the Champions"

The Barcelona captain reiterated that the level of game showed by the team was not sufficient to raise the 'orejona'. "Never I doubted of the staff that have and do not have doubt that can win all what remains, but not playing of this way that came playing. Now well, each one has his opinion and all are very respectable. Mine bases in that had the luck to play the Champions all the years and know that it is not possible to win it playing as well as we came playing", sentenced.

Setién, in his recent interview -in which also it showed loved in front of the hypothetical signing of Neymar-, went back to answer to Messi with some words of meaning very resembled the ones of 'the flea'. "The statement of Messi?. I think that it has generated a big debate. We are convinced that we can win the League of Champions. It is necessary to improve some things, but definitely are convinced that the team has the potential to win it", answered.

A Barça that needs to improve

Without place to doubts, both coincide in a subject that is clear: the Barça has to improve to be competitive against the biggest. The team has not showed, by the moment, neither the defensive consistency neither the offensive potential that had antaño. The speed of circulation of the balloon is not the sufficiently fast, something that does that the team was predictable in attack and remain exposed in the contragolpes.

The antidote for all this is the enormous talent that has the staff culé, although it also will have to have better luck with the injuries that the one who has had until the moment (something difficult after the stop). But so much Messi like Setién know that this team has potential to face up to any rival, reason by which expects that the level of game showed until final of season go of less to more.
