Luis Suarez mount blames on Barcelona boss Quique Setien

teamtalk: Barcelona players were left furious after the weekend’s disappointing 2-2 draw with Celta Vigo, claims a report.

Real Madrid climbed above Barca to the top of LaLiga on Sunday night, heaping the pressure on Barcelona coach Quique Setien.

Spanish paper Marca claim a number of Barcelona’s stars were unhappy with a number of decisions in the Celta game, including the introduction of Antoine Griezmann and Arthur Melo in the second half.

The paper claims Setien has “lost the confidence of the dressing room” with the side surrendering the lead in the title race to Real.

And afterwards Luis Suarez made his feelings blatantly clear.

“It [the result] leaves a bitter taste, one of sadness and frustration because we have lost two points,” said the Uruguyan.

“It’s up to the coaches to analyse it,” when he was asked why the team’s away form is so poor.

“We’re there to do our best on the pitch.

“Away from home, we’re dropping important points that we didn’t usually drop in other seasons.”

The report claims Setien’s future is uncertain, and now only winning the Champions League will save him.

The 61-year-old only arrived in January, but two draws since the league restarted have seen Barca hand the initiative to Real and Setien is feeling the heat.

Setien said: “We shouldn’t have got into that situation because we were much the better team in the first half.

“We had to have gone in at the break with a more comfortable scoreline. I think [football is unfair].

“We’re not in that moment of clarity. For example, it seems incredible that Gerard [Pique]’s [header] didn’t go in.

“Barcelona did a lot of things well. It had to have been a more comfortable game. We definitely lack conviction to turn our play into goals.

“The superiority we had in the first half was enough to have won the match and gone into [the second half] with more relaxation.

“We’re finding it difficult. Scoring is sometimes a question of luck.”

What’s more former Barca midfielder Xavi has admitted he has no doubt that he will end up coaching Barcelona.

The Barca legend almost returned to the club in January, but admitted the time was not right.

“The biggest hope I have now is to be Barca coach and get Barca back to winning ways,” Xavi said by video conference.

“Not me but these players and Barca triumphing. And as a consequence, our technical staff, who are preparing for it a lot and it makes us really excited.”
