Former Blaugrana assistant believes the 8-2 defeat against Bayern will have positive effects on the team.

Former Barça assistant coach Eder Sarabia believes that a heavy defeat against Bayern could have positive results for


in the future.

Barcelona sacked Setien and his technical staff after the bitter defeat in the Champions League, and this was the last time the Spanish manager and his assistant were on the Barça bench. At Barça, they recorded 16 wins, four draws, and five defeats in 25 games. Now Sarabia has claimed that a heavy loss could have good long-term results for Barça.

He told Marca:

"In the Champions League, after playing a great return game against Napoli, Bayern were next. In that game it was evident, as everyone knows, that the outcome was a consequence of many years and many things that were not done well. But we are very calm and proud of the work we did.

"I do not have nightmares about Bayern because there were many things that were not in our control. You analyse it and it is undoubted that they were better, they had a great day although we also had our moments. I remember one from Luis Suárez, another when Busquets hit the post … the game could have changed.

"But that was a consequence of many things in the past, but we look forward. There are players like Piqué who have come out and have explained things well. When you have not done things well for so long, these kinds of things happen. Sometimes it is good to hit rock bottom to lift your head. It was our turn. It is a shame what happened, but we do not have any grudges."

Sarabia then claimed that despite the lack of trophies and an awful ending to the season, there is no regret for him and Setien.

“When we go to the teams, everyone knows why they signed us,”

he added.

“It is because of a specific way of playing and understanding football. From the beginning we try to do what we know and what we feel. And many times we succeed. It is true that in many games we lacked continuity, but reviewing all the games, we got very positive things from all the games.
