It could already be seen that things were not going right from Suarez’s post-game statements, in which he pointed towards the manager when asked being asked about the problem in away games.

The players blamed the coach for some of his decisions, and some changes he made during the Celta game, such as bringing Griezmann on. The players are starting to think that if they continue like this, they will not be able to win titles. After the Celta Vigo tie, Real Madrid has the opportunity to get on top of the La Liga table with 2 points clear.
Fans, however, believe that Barça should be patient. Culés are not forgetting that Setién took over mid-season and that he definitely deserves some more time.
Griezmann jokes when asked about his future following Copa championship: “Ask the president”
After being starved of trophies for two years, Barcelona have won silverware, defeating Athletic Bilbao in the final of the Copa del Rey by four goals to nothing. Lionel Messi was on target twice, while Frenkie de Jong and Antoine Griezmann got a goal each as Barça cruise to victory.
Following the game, Griezmann, who opened the scoring for Barcelona, spoke to the media, including about his future. He jokingly replied to that question by saying, “Ask the president.”
He said that he was very proud of the team and how they have managed to turn around the season, “Proud of the team and the work. We know that the season is very long and there are good and bad times. Keep enjoying the team and in the end the reward will come.”
He ended the presser on a celebratory note, saying, “We have to celebrate this title and enjoy it as a result of the work we’ve done.”
The Frenchman has been in excellent form throughout the Copa del Rey campaign and spearheaded the comeback against Granada in the Quarter-finals. He also assisted Gerard Pique for a last minute equaliser against Sevilla when all seemed lost, and has now been rewarded with the first Copa del Rey win of his career. Onto bigger and better things, hopefully.
