Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets says Quique Setien remaining in charge next season would be a "good sign" because it would mean the club have done well in the Champions League.

Barça host Napoli on Saturday having drawn the first leg 1-1 in Italy in February. The winners will progress to the last eight in Lisbon this month. 

Should Barça lose, it could spell the end for Setien, who missed out on the league title to Zinedine Zidane's Real Madrid, but Busquets, who is suspended against Napoli, is hoping for a different ending. 

"It's a decision for the club, it's nothing to do with the players, we're just focused on what happens on the pitch," the Spain international said in a press conference on Friday. 

"But if Setien continues, it will be a good sign, because that would mean that we've done well in the Champions League or won it." 

On Arthur Melo's situation, Busquets, one of the team's captains, said "it was a surprise for everyone, but only he and the club know the truth. For the good of everyone, I hope there's an agreement and no more noise."
