As the goings keeps getting tough for Fc Barcelona, Head coach Quique Setien’s career has suddenly been up in the air. As we all know Quique Serien was employed in the middle of the season to replace former coach Ernesto Valverde as the latter seem to be bringing the club to a low.
Ernesto Valverde, even though was criticized mostly for his style of play and bottling crucial matches, he never fails to top the La Liga table for the three seasons he reigned as La Blaugrana coach.
And now according to reports from Spanish Diaro AS, Quique Serien who was supposed to be more of a messiah for a supposed dying Barcelona now has two matches to win before he would be able to retain his job till at least the end of this campaign- The Technician, after failing to beat Sevilla and Celta Vigo thereby loosing the first spot to Los Blancos, will have to beat Atletico Madrid which happens to be the next opponent at the camp nou and Villareal away, or else he might have to give space for Barca B coach Garcia Pimienta and thereby loosing his job.
The barcelona board have reportedly informed the 45years old of their plans and he seem to be ready even though he wish Quique Serien luck.
Garcia Pimienta’s contract ends at the end of this month but a renewal is expected on June 30th.
It’s said that the head coach Quique Setien has a rather bad relationship with the squad probably because of his assistant Eder Sarabia whom the players dislike for the way he talks. Goal reported that the Spanish tactician has lost the support of the dressing room in recent days.
The Spainiard came under fire following a run of inconsistent results that saw his side drop four vital points in their last three games since restart of the league which saw Real Madrid top the table with two points between them.
Pimienta on the other hand will continue at the reserves with his main objective being to win the playoff and earn promotion to the segunda division. This season,the B team managed to gather 49 points,winning 13 matches,drawing ten and losing five. They had been on second position before the season was stopped- To be promoted, the boys need to win three playoff matches. Their first fixture is going to be against Real Valladolid B.
