FC Barcelona coach Quique Setien spoke at his press conference ahead of the clash with Atletico Madrid on Tuesday and was asked about the tension he has felt in recent days, with various heavyweights not listening to his assistant Eder Sarabia.
"I feel just as strong now as when I arrived and I will feel like that until the end," said Setien. "The first thing is to liberate my conscience and I am doing everything that I know how to do for this to go well, us to win games and get the success we all hope for. I'm convinced that we are doing a good job, but I know that victories hide many things and defeats... there are moments and moments. One wins and enjoys it, you have to knuckle-down when you lose."
In recent days the coach's ability to handle big names has been questioned. "Everyone the players too, have to give way for the good of the team. We can't do everything we would like to do. This is a team and we have to act like a team. We have to sacrifice some personal things for the benefit of the group. I don't mind admitting that this is new for me, at this level. Now I understand a lot of things and I have to do what I have to do. But that's not about the players because it happened to me at Las Palmas and in Sevilla with Real Betis."
