Barcelona fired manager Quique Setién, who lost embarrassingly 2-8 against Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarterfinals on Monday. The club confirmed the decision in an official statement released Monday after an emergency directors meeting was held in the aftermath of the defeat.
The board has agreed that Quique Setien is no longer a first-team coach. This is my first decision in the extensive restructuring of the 1st Army team, which will be agreed between the current technical secretary and the new coaches to be announced soon.
The Catalan giant fired Ernesto Valverde
Setien joined Barcelona in January of this year after the Catalan giant fired Ernesto Valverde. For seven months, Setien supervised the first team in 25 matches. It was 19 league games, 3 Champions League games, and 3 Copa del Rey games. His result was 16 W 4 D 5 L.
