Former Barcelona boss, Quique Setien comments on his situation with Blaugrana.




Quique Setien

signed a two-and-a-half-year contract with the club in January 2020, replacing the dismissed

Ernesto Valverde


But after poor results and bad performances, especially disgraceful 8-2 loss against

Bayern Munich

in the

Champions League

, he got sacked and was replaced by the Dutch manager,

Ronald Koeman


Setien is now trying to take a legal action against Barca, as he claims he has not received any compensation and was not properly informed of his dismissal:

In an official statement, Setien said:

In my case, Quique Setien, it is public and well known that on August 17, both the club and the president announced my dismissal with immediate effect,"

"However, it was not until yesterday, September 16, when they sent me, for the first time, the written communication of said dismissal.”

Setien claims that until this day, no one from the club has contacted him to inform him about the termination of his contract.

He told Cope:

"Barca have not compensated me, nor have they offered me anything.

"They have not even called me to tell me that I am dismissed."
