Quique Setién speaks after the 2-2 draw against Atletico



Barça coach Quique Setién spoke to the press after a disappointing 2-2 result against Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid at the Camp Nou. Here is what he said:

On the result

“It’s not easy to play against a team like Atletico, but I’m quite happy with the team’s game. We will continue to work hard.”

On the La Liga title race

“It’s a shame. The league has become more complicated and we have gone further away from winning the title.”

On Griezmann

“I see him doing well. I didn’t bring him on because we were playing well. I didn’t want to destabilize the team.”

On Griezmann only getting 5 minutes

“No comment…”

On rumours about him getting sacked

“I don’t feel I’m under the pressure of being sacked. I feel like I’m the coach of this team. I feel I have the support from the dressing room.”

On the team’s performance

“I’m happy about the players’ performances, but I’m disappointed with the result. I’m very happy with the team’s performance. Especially Vidal and Puig. Riqui understood his position and he did what we asked him to do very well.

Barça has had a special place in my heart ever since I started watching football. After joining Barca Universal last year, I have been fortunate enough to share thoughts and content about the club I love with my fellow culés. The love and respect for this club keep me going in doing what I do here at Barca Universal. Hoping to share more and more victories with you culés in the future.
