Papers: Setién will remain at Barcelona for the time being

The important take a away from this headline is “for the time being”. Apparently his meeting with Josep-Maria Bartomeu went off OK and he’s still got his job…..for the time being. The big boss has enough faith in his manager for him to carry the team through to the Champions League.

Sport’s headline talks of “Setian shaking”….suggesting a rift between dressing room and coaching staff. Barca still think that there’s more mileage in the relationship. They feel that the former Real Betis manager can still lead for the remainder of the season. But we feel that once this season is done, then Setien will get his walking boots.

Mundo Deportivo’s title says “Setien Resiste” and they see the manager remaining at Camp Nou despite the obvious disconnect between himself and his players. But the clock is ticking. Barcelona are used to taking home all the silverware and get pretty uppity when they see the trophies going elsewhere.
