In the midst of efforts to rise from adversity, Barcelona hit by unpleasant issues. Two Catalan giants reportedly were found fighting in the club’s dressing room. This unpleasant news was reported by one US journalist, Javier Miguel.
Javier said that the fight took place in a training session last week. Only, Javier was reluctant to reveal the names of the two players, who clearly both have a strong influence in the dressing room.
“This might not be a big problem when the situation is normal, just a fight between two teammates. However, this is related to the chaotic club situation since early 2020, “he said, quoted from the US.
Not only that, there is other news that claims that some Barcelona players do want the sacking of Ernesto Valverde. It was stated that the players deliberately performed below the standard so that the club had a bad result, and eventually the coach was the victim.
The situation is further complicated by the failure of the club to bring in a new striker in the transfer market last winter, even though they lost Luis Suarez. Instead the club released some of their players like Carles Alena, Juan Todibo.
Then there was a defeat at Valencia headquarters which made the club lose its position at the top of the standings.
“The situation was made worse by the defeat of Valencia last week. That has created worries and uncertainties among players, “AS wrote.
The arrival of a new coach, Quique Setien should be a new breath for Barcelona. But it is claimed that some players are not happy with the former Real Betis coach. Moreover, he eliminated the habit of team-talk before the match.
“Normally, Lionel Messi and Gerard Pique will give their motivational words to the team before the match,” he wrote.
So far, Barcelona has played five times under the control of Quique Setien. The result, four wins and one defeat. Finally, Barcelona won 2-1 over Levante. Setien himself is a 61-year-old coach, who has never handled a big club.
Barcelona can be said to be the first big club that he handled. However, the philosophy carried by the former Real Betis coach is in line with the club’s identity.
