Quique Setién He has been optimistic about the options that his FC Barcelona has to conquer LaLiga, since he warns that it won’t be an easy challenge. The Blaugrana coach went through ‘El Partidazo de COPE’ and referred to the schedules that have put them on the return to competition.
Like a sector of Real Madrid, he does not like them in one aspect: in the four confirmed days, they will play at 10:00 p.m. “I think it is better to play before Madrid. It seems good to me to play before, but I don’t think it’s okay to go home to sleep at 2:00 or 3:00 in the morning. They have put us all the away games at 22.00 “, he assured, although it will also happen to them with the home games.
The first will be this Saturday in Mallorca, and you can count on a Messi that was played until a few days ago. “Like some other players, he had some slight discomfort and stopped as a precaution, because they can become a more serious problem and miss 4 games out of 11,” admits Setién. “Playing games so concentrated, nobody knows what will happen. All this is going to be new and we don’t know how we are going to respond. The logical and normal thing is that Messi will rest at some point, but we all know its ability to dose. We will have to see it on the go “, leaves the Cantabrian open.
The return of football is great news, although Setién admits that at some point he saw it as “very black.” “All the coaches talked about it and we all agreed: we saw the situation very complicated. You were looking at the numbers of infected or death, and maybe it was fear. Now everything looks different. Now we do believe that there may be no problems, because we are taking everything to the letter. People are calmer and more secure. That there is no problem in the Bundesliga encourages you, “he admits.

In the fight for the LaLiga title, he will face Real Madrid who will not play at the Santiago Bernabéu, but at Alfredo di Stéfano, which possibly influences him, in the opinion of the culé coach. “It is not the same to play in the same stadium as always, even without an audience, than to play in Valdebebas. Hopefully it will influence him,” wishes a Setién, who is one step ahead: “We have a better situation than Madrid, with a 2 point advantage, although we are both going to lose points. In La Liga you can fix any error in 11 games, in Champions, no, “he recalls.
In any case, he is optimistic about what he has seen of his footballers. “Except Umtiti, the rest have come very well, very well, very well. They have spark, and everyone wants to play. They really want. I think Barça will be a fresher team than before the break. They have all been cleaned and have started a season that will be played in 11 games, and that is a special motivation, “says Setién.
