Éric Abidal had foreseen to gather in the night of this Saturday 15 August to communicate to Quique Setién that won't keep on being the coach of the FC Barcelona
Quique Setién has the hours explained in the FC Barcelona, and is not a simple expression. It is the pure reality. The Cantabrian technician will not keep on being the Barcelona trainer of face to the next season 2020-21, and from means as 'MD' ensure that Éric Abidal, the technical secretary, had foreseen to gather with him this same Saturday at night to communicate him his dismissal.
The official announcement of the course of Quique Setién is imminent, and possibly communicate this same Monday when it finish the summit of urgency that will keep the managerial board of Josep Maria Bartomeu. In her it will agree with all security the exit of the current preparador and will study the names of possible reliefs to substitute him of face to the next campaign.
After the 2-8, Quique Setién already had assumed that it would not keep on being the trainer of the Barça by more time. His stage in the Barça has finished, and everything aims to that it will be destituido without possibility to fulfil the second year of his agreement. Hardly seven months after having landed in the club, will do the cases without having achieved at all of what proposed to his arrival.
It landed in January after the dismissal of Valverde, and days after the Barça fell in the semifinals of the Supercopa of Spain. It collected to a Barça leader in the League, first of his group in the Champions League and ready to play the Glass of Rey. In these 25 parties, Setién has lost the three competitions. 16 victories, 4 ties and 5 defeats are his bagaje in a team that needs much more.
Setién Never achieved what wanted in the Barça
His Barça has covered this second phase of the season alternating two systems, the usual 4-3-3, and the 4-4-2 with rhombus. Any of the two diagrams has cost him to achieve his aims. In four of these 25 parties, the Barça did not attain to see goal and in 11 of them did not fit any goal. All the good defensive work attained in this time remained blurred with the eight so many that lumbered with him the Bayern to the defence title.
A chorreo of biblical dimensions that will have immediate consequences, and the first will be the dismissal of the Cantabrian technician. To define like a brave trainer, Setién became a cheap copy of Ernesto Valverde with his alignments and his form to orient the parties. It is not of extrañar that his stage in the club have had a still worse denouement that the one of the 'Txingurri'.
