The dismissal of Ernesto Valverde and the contracting of Quique Setién by the FC Barcelona has given the turn to the world. There is the one who thinks that the group blaugrana did not act with honesty with the trainer extremeño. The forms of the club were not the best and the 'Txingurri' practically enteró of his cessation by mediation of the media. Rivaldo, ex player of the Barça and voice authorised in the surroundings barcelonista, gave his opinion on this subject.

The ex mediapunta Brazilian loaded against the Barcelona by how managed the dismissal of the of Viandar of the Edge. "It is clear that the Barcelona has not known to manage well this change of trainer. They have been something naïve and perhaps something disrespectful with Valverde. After all, never it is positive to begin to negotiate with a new trainer when have to the current working", ensured.

Besides, the champion of the world with Brazil affirmed that it thinks that the culés ficharon to Setién because they did not have more option after the refusals of Xavi and Koeman. "I think that the Barcelona has fichado to Setién because it had not gone back backwards to the hour to sack to Valverde, after they did not succeed in the signing of Xavi and Koeman. It would not have had any sense keep to Valverde after all this, so they had to give by good his third option", signalled.

Rivaldo Also commented that it seems him natural that the managerial left to trust Valverde, but did not dare to say if the change of technician arrives in the timely moment. "It is a normal consequence of the results. They are the most important of the football and when you can not achieve them, the directive will begin to doubt of your work, something that besides already had happened before. What can not ensure is if the change has arrived in a good moment or no. We will need to see if Quique Setién does really charge of the team and if the guide to the success until final of season", admitted.

Rivaldo Thinks that Setién is the easy solution

The Brazilian said not knowing a lot to Setién further of the very that has listened that play his teams. The ex Barcelona thinks that his low profile will do him can work without pressure, since there will be expectations with him. "By what am reading and what explain me, seems that it is a good trainer. The results will determine his future. Never it has trained to a so big club like the Barcelona and will be a new experience for him. It does not have a lot that lose and does not bring big expectations to the fans of the Barcelona. It is an internal solution, of Spain, with good reputation in the country, but without any notable history in big clubs, something that could have done easier and cheap the negotiations. It would not create a lot of problems if the Barcelona has to change again of trainer", recalcó.

But precisely by this low profile and by the fault of curriculum, Rivaldo thinks that Setién does not go to have margin of error. If the Cantabrian does not give prompt results, the club could decide do without he to put to another. "What has to know is that it needs to cause impression quickly in the team or can that it leave quickly the club because his curriculum is not any guarantee, does not give him any margin of error", concluded.
