The coach of FC Barcelona, Quique Setién, He reviewed the moment of “uncertainty” that soccer has stopped and without a return date in the face of the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic, a return that he would like to see with “guarantees”, at the same time that it became complex to think about transfers, but recognized that “Neymar and Lautaro would come in handy” for being “good players”.
“What I would like is to come back as soon as possible and finish as soon as possible to avoid further damage to football. The reality is that this is really serious and that I would like when we have to go back all the guarantees can be given that we will be safe and that we will not have to stop again“he said this Thursday night in an interview with ‘El Larguero’ from Cadena SER.
The Barça coach recognized that the return of the league will have to be behind closed doors. “It will almost certainly be without an audience, there is no other remedy until that vaccine appears that gives us more peace of mind. We all want to play even if it has to be behind closed doors, although it’s going to be a little sad, but we will be able to finish the competition and start the normal process, “he said.
“We are following what the players report to us and we try to prepare the work that we could not do since we arrived. When we arrive you have to compete, you do not have time to transmit so many things and now we are preparing many things,” he added.
“It would be logical for Barça to be champion”
It was even more complicated for Setién to think about the next campaign and “speculation” of the next market with Neymar and Lautaro Martínez as supposed objectives of Barça. “I will like all the great players. Neymar is one of them, but the way things are, you have to consider whether it will be possible. All speculations will depend on the economic situation in the clubs.. These footballers cost a lot of money, “he said.
“I focus on the short term, there will be time for all this. There are many speculations on this issue. There are many uncertainties. Both would be good (Neymar and Lautaro) because they are good soccer players. We are going to convince Messi that there is a winning project for next year“he added about the continuity of the Argentine linked by himself to a winning team.
On the other hand, Setién was asked about the plan of the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) clarifying the European places for next season based on how the table was and in case the competition cannot be resumed. “You have to make a decision in that regard, if it has to be that way it should be. Those who are there are the ones who have made the most merit. It would be logical for Barça to be champion, but it could be another team. I would not like to be champion in this way, “he said.
The Cantabrian coach, who arrived at Barça at the start of the second round of the league, reviewed his work so far. “There have been moments when the team has played very well, but also we have lacked continuity in many things. Many of the approaches that we proposed have been fulfilled. We have lacked to win more clearly some matches that we have deserved it. I am satisfied with the route and I see growth, “he said.
“We have arrived and the style has always been the same but there are things that have varied in relation to other coaches, each one has its nuances. Valverde has done things very well but we have changed some things, like going to steal with more intensity. At Betis at the beginning we also had difficulties. There are players who have arrived a year ago who did not have that style, “he added.
