Barça's Setien: I don't waste even a second thinking about my future

"This is the circus we're involved in and we accept it, but I don't waste time"

Despite the speculation that Barcelona could look for another managerial change, Quique Setien, who replaced Ernesto Valverde in January, says he's not even spent "second" worrying about his future in the Camp Nou dugout.

"I don't spend a minute thinking about that," he said in a press conference on Saturday. "I focus on what I have to focus on, which in this case is Sunday's game. This is the circus we're involved in and we accept it, but I don't waste time listening or reading (speculation)."  

Setien added: "I know there is noise being made but I have to focus on my own job. It's not the first time and it won't be results that there are doubts about a coach when results don't accompany them." 

The coach's future has been placed in doubt following three draws in four games, which has allowed Real Madrid to turn a two-point deficit into a four-point lead at the top of La Liga. 

After the second of those draws, last weekend against Celta Vigo, Setien met with president Josep Maria Bartomeu and other members of the board. 

However, the coach insists he did not get the impression from the meeting that he will not be in charge when the next season kicks off after the summer. 

"I have said I am not going to reveal the conversations we had that day, but I didn't sense that, not at all," he said.
