Quique Setién led Barça for six months. The relationship with Lionel Messi, obviously, was not looking good.
Lionel Messi left Barca just over a year ago. And, contrary to what one might think, the Argentinian did not leave only good memories to those he rubbed shoulders with at Camp Nou. A certain Quique Setién, for example, was not really marked by their short joint collaboration. Or in the negative sense of the term.
The Spanish technician had taken care of the Blaugrana for a period of six months in 2020, between the departure of Ernesto Valverde and the arrival of Ronald Koeman. It was not Barça’s best period and he hinted that the Argentine genius did nothing to help him in his task.
In an interview given to Movistar this Wednesday, and when asked about La Pulga, Quique Setién replied: “Messi? I’d rather not talk about it « . An enigmatic statement that resembles the one José Mourinho made one day, when he asked not to speak so as not to have problems. Even if it does not have the same aura as The Special One, Quique Setién risks spilling ink with this (brief) media release.
