Before Quique Setién got sacked, this was what he said to the press “It’s a tremendously painful defeat. The team has been overwhelmed. Bayern have surpassed us. It’s too early to think about my continuity at the club. It’s not up to me.”
Knowingly Barcelona sack Setien after this 8-2 loss, it would mean that they’ll pay three managers, have a €671 million wage bill, a spine at the average age of 31.5 age, €212m lost in matchday revenue, and before La Liga-restart they needed €120m to balance the books.The €212m lost matchday revenue is a very rough calculation. Last fiscal year they had €212m matchday revenue. Half of this season played without fans and likely they won’t have fans this fall after spikes of corona-cases in Barcelona/Spain. Two half-seasons ~ one season.
While on the other side Gerard Piqué said: “I’m in pain. We all are. We can’t compete like that. It’s very, very tough to take. Nothing more is worth saying. The club needs changes. Not just the players, I don’t want to point out anyone.”What exactly do you think is wrong with Barcelona team?
