Arthur Melo is still in Brazil and does not have paint that it go to move a finger to return to Barcelona in the next days. The Brazilian midfield player declared in rebeldía at the beginning of week when feeling hurt by the deal that has received of Quique Setién and of the Barça, and did not present to the return of the team to the trainings this past Monday.

Days before, already had 'erased' of the last announcement when inventing some annoyances that did not trascend to official level, and that the same Setién insinuated in press conference that treated of a simple excuse not to go summoned. It was as it was, they are not few the voices that ensure that Arthur Melo is not the bad of the film, but rather the managerial board of the FC Barcelona.

"The elimination of the Barça in front of the Naples would suppose surely the end of the era Setién"

One of these voices is a myth blaugrana like Rivaldo, the one who considers that the directive of Bartomeu "has not managed well the case". "Everything aims to an internal problem, and to that has been the managerial the one who said him in his moment to Setién that began to consider to Arthur like his last option in the half field in the final stretch of the League", shows convinced the compatriot of Arthur.

"I am safe that Setién would have wanted to have to the available player, because it is of the best and would have been useful. The case Arthur has been very bad managed", insists Rivaldo, blaming directly to the directive of the sucedido and excusando to the player, although it has broken his agreement and his promise to help to the team until it finished the season 2019-20.

"It is difficult that see to the Coutinho of the Liverpool with the T-shirt of the Barcelona"

"Anybody can signal it because the Barcelona decided to use it in a negotiation. It is sad to see how all this is finishing. Surely it was not what Arthur wanted to when it went out of Guild to Europe", adds Rivaldo, exonerating of fault any to Arthur and comparing the case with the one of Miralem Pjanic, the one who himself has played with regularity with the Juventus of Turín to the orders of Sarri.

"It is that the things would not have to work like this. It looks how Pjanic is playing with total normality in the Juventus until the traspaso definite do reality", remarks. On the eliminatory of eighth of final of the Champions League in front of the Naples, Rivaldo thinks that the Barça will need to improve urgently to advance to chambers.

If the Barça falls in front of the Napoli, goodbye to Setién

"Already it said it Messi and I agree with he: the team needs to improve enough if they want to defeat to the Italians in the Camp Nou. And for this have to concentrate only in this party, forget the disappointing end of season in LaLiga". In this sense, has clear that if the Barça remains deleted in eighth, Quique Setién also will go out by the rear door.

"Without fans, the team of Gattuso will not feel so much pressure and will play with the enormous expansionary wave that would suppose the elimination of the Barcelona for his social mass and even with the fact that it also would suppose surely the end of the era Setién in the Barcelona", concludes Rivaldo, before recommending to Philippe Coutinho that return to the Premier League. "It is difficult that see to the Coutinho of the Liverpool with the T-shirt of the Barcelona. So, in my opinion, the best option is that it go back to England where played his best football".
