Quique Setien has confirmed in his press conference today the meeting reported by Cadena Ser between the staff and the players after training on Sunday.
The team drew 2-2 at Balaidos and tempers were raised. The radio said there was "a tense meeting" after the session, with the coach highlighting different sporting aspects. There is the chance this meeting could be an inflexion point ahead of the clash with Atletico Madrid.
They discussed the relationship between the staff and the players - especially Eder Sarabia - which is not at a good ebb. Luis Suarez and Messi seem to want a direct route to the coach and not have to go through his assistant. Valverde took that on himself when he was in charge. There are images of Messi ignoring Sarabia at Balaidos. It wasn't the only thing discussed.
