The intern Quique Setién broke the silence that remained since he was fired from Barcelona. In a conversation with the Spanish artist Vicente del Bosque published by the periodical El País, I went over your stage at the azulgrana club and admitted that “there are players who not easy to manage, between ellos (Lionel) Messi “.
In the conversation, the technical director revealed details of his experience leading the blue team, a stage in which, according to regrets, in the same spirit.
I set myself up in a relationship with Lionel Messi, since I qualified as “the best of all times”, but I need to have “enough experience to have an accurate assessment of how this muchacho (Messi) and others really are”.
“The great demand that today exists in football has imbued it with many others who need to win permanently”, reports Setién.
Y añadió: “But, of course, to earn all you can’t use it all. It’s true that there are players who are not easy to manage. Among them, Leo (Messi), it’s true. You also have to think that you’re the best football player in all times. I want to change! If all is accepted during the same years and in the changed currency …“

In this sense, the exentrenador of Barcelona has drawn a parallel between the Argentine and Michael Jordan. “Hay is another aspect that is not difficult to manage and very difficult to manage. Many more. Something inherent to many sportsmen as seen in the documentary by Michael Jordan (The Last Dance). You see things that you do not expect”, aseveró.
About the personality of the captain of Barcelona, I say that “you are very reserved” and “in the much too much” but “you have to see things that you want”.
In any case, Setien argued that the club – and Barcelona – and the fans are “over the president, the player and the coach”.
“Hay millions of people who believe that Messi, any other player, is more important than the club and that the intern. This player, like others around him, has lived for 14 years winning titles, winning everything”, he said.
In the interview, Setién regretted not having “made other decisions” at certain times and regretted that it could not have been so.
“It hasn’t been my thing. It hasn’t been known, the reality is that. When you sign up for a club of a size like Barça, you know that things in the van are easy in spite of having the best players. The reality is that I couldn’t be yo, I don’t know what I had to do “, he admits.
