Quique Setién is sentenced. The president of the FC Barcelona, Josep Maria Bartomeu, like this would have confirmed it to him to a journalist of the Chain COPE, Víctor Navarro, to his exit of the meeting kept this past Sunday with Ramon Plans and Éric Abidal in the offices of the FC Barcelona to start with to treat the possible solutions to the sportive crisis of the team.

"It is it was", it would have been the conclusive answer of 'Barto' to the journalist of the program 'The Partidazo of Cope' of the Chain Cope, confirming so the FC Barcelona will execute his first movement with a change in the bench, possibly to bring to Ronald Koeman like relief. The current technician of the Dutch selection is the main candidate to train to the Barça, with García Pepper in the recámara, since Pochettino generates rejection between the fans culé.

The 2-8 with which the FC Barcelona fell humiliated in Champions League against the Bayern Munich was the puntilla for Quique Setién that already arrived very questioned to the party, and that after the goleada in front of the Bavarians remained without any possibility to continue exerting the charge by which has agreement until 2021, with option to a season more.

The Cantabrian will be ceased, his agreement terminated, and will arrive a trainer with capacity to recover the 'DNA Barça' and to the that, sure, will not shiver him the pulse to the hour to revolutionise the alignments and take key decisions, something that already has done in the benches where has trained previously. Koeman, besides, generates consensus between the fans and the members of the club when treating of a historical figure of the barcelonismo.

Koeman, a technical bridge or something more?

Theoretically it would arrive like trainer bridge until Xavi Hernández assume the place, perhaps with the change of directive from 2021. If the things go him well to the Barça with Koeman this next season, however, no descarta that the Dutch can be ratified and continue more campaigns in the place. As always, everything will depend on the results...

What is clear is that Quique Setién no longer will keep on being the trainer of the Barça. In his seven months in the charge, has not achieved to fulfil any of his aims and, besides, has fracasado in the three competitions in which the Barça followed alive in January (arrived with the Barça leader in LaLiga and has finish it losing, and has fallen deleted in chambers of Glass of Rey and of Champions League). The things have not gone out like him expected.
