Quique Setien, a former manager of Barcelona, has stated that he would prefer “not to talk about” Lionel Messi while thinking back on his “uncomfortable” time at Camp Nou.
After leading Las Palmas and Real Betis to victories, Setien was named Barcelona’s manager in January 2020.
His tenure in leadership ended up being a complete failure. He will always be remembered as the manager who guided the Blaugrana to an 8-2 loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarterfinal in August 2020.
Three days after being fired, the Spanish manager attempted to file a lawsuit against Barca for breach of contract, according to ESPN.
There are particular circumstances that are uncomfortable. I’d rather avoid discussing Messi. I had a pretty excellent relationship with him in the beginning, albeit it did slightly deteriorate as a result of the results and the unfavorable circumstances at the club. He wasn’t quite content, in my opinion. That was the cause of his leaving Barcelona.
Recall that Maduka Okoye’s invitation has drawn criticism, though, since some feel that the bench warmer is not deserving of a spot on the team. Nigeria, though, is the favorite to win this international scrimmage because Algeria will also be without some of their best players. Nigeria needs to win because it would keep the team moving in the right direction.
