Quique Setién was the bet of the FC Barcelona in January to substitute to Ernesto Valverde. The 'Txingurri' still had the support of some heavy weights like Leo Messi or Luis Suárez, but from the club lost him the faith after the defeat in the Supercopa of Spain against the Athletic of Madrid. Xavi Hernández was the first candidate that handled the directive and Ronald Koeman his alternative, but the two said "no"and then attended to the Cantabrian.

The ex technician of the Real Betis promised to play well and go back to the called 'Cruyffismo', the style of game that the Barça always has exhibited, but that had lost with Valverde in the bench. Nevertheless, the words of the santanderino has carried them to him the wind and the culés alone have played like this in explained occasions from January. There have been exceptions like the crash against the Villarreal or the closing of League in Mendizorroza in front of the Alavés, but generally the Barcelona has been a team ramplón and without character.

In addition to not fulfilling with the aims regarding game, Setién neither attained to retain LaLiga neither win the Glass. The 'Txingurri' left to the Barcelona leader, but with the Cantabrian has finished losing the championship after a disastrous turn of the stop by coronavirus. The Barcelona empataron three parties and lost one, the one of Osasuna, remaining without options to compete by the title in the last day. In Glass, the Catalans went home in chambers after falling in Bilbao against the Athletic.

By all these reasons, from the club posed seriously cease to the ex of The Palms and put to Javier García Pepper for the League of Champions and the season that comes. Nevertheless, at the end Josep Maria Bartomeu decided to give him more margin to Setién after a conversation that was supported by he does a pair of weeks. The president trusts that the one of Santander can revertir the situation and attain to do a good paper in the Champions that do him merecedor to train to the Barça the next course.

But if the míster fracasa also in Europe, is likely that finish in the street, since the heavy weights of the changing room never have been with him. Without his support, Setién will not follow unless it win or that at least compete to the end by the 'Orejona'. If it finish leaving, in England say that Leo Messi, leader and big captain of the ship blaugrana, has a candidate that is of his like and could substitute to the Cantabrian.

Messi would have recommended to the 'Crazy' Bielsa

According to the 'The Sun', the '10' would bet by Marcelo Bielsa, his and big compatriot triunfador of the Championship this course when rising to the Leeds to the Premier League after 13 years been still in Second. The Argentinian technician has experience in LaLiga, where was two years in the bench of the Athletic, where left a big memory and arrived to the final of the Europe League. Messi knows to spare to the 'Crazy' and would have recommended his signing. His style and methodology marry with the Barça, but his peculiar character do that perhaps it was not a viable option for a transatlantic like the Barcelona.
