Bartomeu confirms that Setien will coach Barcelona next season

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has confirmed that the current team’s coach Quique Setien will continue his work as head coach of the Catalans next season.

“Setien has a contract. When we hired him, we explained to him that it was a project for this season and everything next. It is very difficult to evaluate the performance of a trainer over several months with a pandemic in between. Arturo Vidal has already said that little time has passed to get acquainted and work.

We never thought about changing the coach. I know there is some information that if he doesn’t win two games we will change him, but that was never discussed. Setien is our coach.

We didn’t talk to anyone. Not with Laurent Blanc, not with anyone. I communicate with Xavi, because we have a good relationship, besides, he recently signed a new contract with his team, ” quotes Bartomeu.
