Barcelona coach Setien tells his players: We all need to sacrifice for the team

Barcelona coach Quique Setien has hinted he’s fighting player power ahead of their clash with Atletico Madrid.

Setien is under pressure after Saturday’s draw at Celta Vigo and Real Madrid moving clear at the top of the table after their win at Espanyol on Sunday.

Asked about player power this morning, Setien said: “We all have to give up a part of ourselves, including footballers, for the good of the team.

“I cannot tell a fullback who is offensive to stay to defend. This is a team and as such it must act. And sometimes you have to sacrifice certain personal things for the benefit of the team. And the reality that I, there are things that by knowledge, I have no problem admitting that it is a new situation, and that I am in a period when you find out about many things and gradually do what you want to do.

“But this has nothing to do with the players. These are processes that in time places everyone in their place.”

On his job, Setien added: “The noise is up to you, I stay out of it. I focus on the things that I have to focus on. I don’t know what moves until the information office tells me something. I am focused, I know how it works and I try not to wear myself out like footballers, who I think do the same.”
