Quique Setien is unsure whether he would continue as the coach of Barcelona in the Champions League or not, following their dismal show in the business end of the La Liga. On January 13, 2020, he was appointed for the post, replacing Ernesto Valverde in the middle of the La Liga season.

Barcelona’s 1-2 loss to Osasuna at home not only side-tracked their title hopes but allowed Real Madrid to clinch their 34th La Liga win with a game to spare. The Blaugrana constantly dropped points since La Liga resumed post lockdown, which allowed Real Madrid to leapfrog them and eventually claim the silverware. Barcelona boss Quique Setien, who was appointed as Barcelona’s head coach earlier this year in unsure whether he would carry on as the head coach of the side after the slip-up in La Liga.

"I hope to be the Barcelona coach in the Champions League but I don't know,” said Quique Setien, to reporters after the loss to Osasuna.

Lionel Messi recently termed Barcelona’s as a very very erratic, very weak, low-intensity team and believes that they made the road quite easy for Real Madrid. Setien stated that he completely understands the Argentine’s frustrations and believes that they have been victims of bad luck quite a few times in this campaign.

"I agree with Messi on some things. We have to do self-criticism and if we don't do it, it will cost us anything we want to do. We have tried to improve during these months that we have been here, there are things that have cost us and [overshadowed the] many times that we have done well. It all comes down to success, today the opponent shot three times and scored two goals, we had fifteen [shots] and we were not right,” added the manager.
