Ernesto Valverde was on thin ice following the dramatic Liverpool comeback in the Champions League against Barcelona. Sporadic results followed and the Barcelona faithful were not too pleased with the manner in which Valverde set up his teams. Earlier this year in January, Barcelona appointed Quique Setien as the man to replace Valverde on a contract that keeps the former Real Betis manager at Camp Nou until 2021, with the option of a one-year contract extension.
Barcelona head coach Quique Setien spoke to TV3 and admitted that he is desperate to win titles at Barcelona and has no time to waste.

Although Setien still dreams of winning the prestigious European trophy, the second leg at Camp Nou the has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak. Upon winning the Champions League, Setien has claimed that he will return to his hometown of Liencres to celebrate with a herd of cows.
