Major changes imminent at FC Barcelona after CL debacle


FC Barcelona president Josep Mario Bartomeu has announced some major changes, but does not want to say what the club’s plans are. According to expectations, trainer Quique Setién and technical director Éric Abidal will soon be fired.

That has everything to do with the shocking Champions League humiliation against Bayern Munich. Barcelona is not only eliminated from the Champions League, but is also losing face as the noisy 2019/2020 season ends without a prize. For the third time in a row, the club is thrown out of the billion dollar ball in a humiliating way. The pressure on Barcelona will only increase and so something must be done.

“In the coming days we will make decisions”, Bartomeu told Movistar afterwards. “We have already made a number of decisions for this match.” Bartomeu does not want to say whether Setien will leave. “I’d rather not say anything right now. We have to carry this pain with us and raise ourselves up.”

Spanish media predict that the Barcelona administration must also leave.
