Bartomeu already said that they have decisions made, while the possibility of Pochettino being the next DT grows.
The era of Quique Setien comes to an end. In fact, he did it yesterday in Lisbon, where the Barcelona Messi ended up in the history books after suffering a humiliating defeat at the hands of a Bayern that ran him over.
The coach has not improved his predecessor, Ernesto Valverde, who lost his position after a good game that did not help him to win in the Spanish Super Cup and was struck down. Setién did not achieve that, so the same mechanism that convicted Valverde will convict him in the next few hours.
His Barcelona could not stay with La Liga although he was at the top of the table after the stoppage of football. And they never lived up to the moment of truth in the Champions League.
According to the Goal site, Setién’s fate has been decided for weeks and the only thing missing is his successor, whose announcement will take place shortly after the removal of the Cantabrian, which will force his dismissal. “Now everything is too close to think if I’m going to continue or not,” said the Cantabrian, who does not intend to resign.
It happens that “the decisions have already been made in advance”, as Bartomeu clarified moments before the name of Mauricio Pochettino began to grow as his successor. It is a question that in any case will be resolved in a matter of days but it is already a certain science: Setién is history, it only remains to be seen if, indeed, Pochettino is the chosen one.
