Barcelona has decided to let go of the current Manager Quique Setien immediately after their humiliating defeat by Bayern Munich FC.
Around the globe, millions of football fans were glued to their TV and phone screens, in an attempt not to miss a much-anticipated tussle between tow football giants.
The Champions League, which pre-COVID-19 pandemic, held predominately on Tuesdays and Wednesdays has been re-scheduled recently in a bid to align with the current health challenge in the world.
The German champions Bayern Munich utterly humiliated Barcelona with a stunning 8-2 victory on Friday night which sent them through into the semi-finals of the Champions League in a grand style.
Skipper Thomas Mueller scored twice for Bayern, who led 4-1 in the first half. The Catalan club Barcelona was humiliated to a defeat that seemed like the end of the world to them.
A lot of fans have reacted to the news of Sacking Barcelona Manager, less than 2 hours after the defeat. Most of the fans were content with the decision of the management.
Reacting to the news, a twitter user @seunopinions17 commented on the post by @futbolBible by saying “They need to start realizing the managers aren’t the problem it’s the fella in charge of transfers”
A Barcelona fan on twitter @luisvee16 also replying to @FutbolBible’s post said: “He was bad at Betis I knew bringing him here was bad.”
In an interview immediately after the defeat, Setién said: “Really painful. Huge frustration. Barça is such a big club. This does damage and something will change for sure. It’s too early to think if I’ll continue or not, that doesn’t depend on me, there’ll be reflection given the importance for Barça of such a humiliating defeat”
Quique Setien took over the team management in January after the previous coach Ernesto Valverde was sacked. Before his time at Barcelona FC, Setien had managed Spanish clubs Las Palmas and Betis.
