First outbreaks of self-management in the locker room

first_imgThe team arrived at the Champions League meeting against Naples with the spirits recovered in some way after having taken the leadership in Real Madrid from LaLiga. Nevertheless, the match at the San Paolo stadium was a nightmare for the Blaugrana, especially in a first part where they were unable to chain a play that would end the ball between the three suits. No shot at the door in 45 minutes and with the aggravating that the rival had put it at the first opportunity he had. At rest, the faces of the players were a poem. The frustration and confusion over the bad game of the team were evident. Setién, accompanied by his second, Eder Sarabia, tried to lift his spirits a little, ensuring that the team was doing many things well and that there was only a little more arrival in the area. Nevertheless, the coach’s arguments were not enough for some players, who gathered in a separate huddle to finish managing this situation and try to remedy it. And in the Champions League, the details take you to the slaughterhouse and more than one had the shadow of Rome and Liverpool still very close.There is no doubt that the team improved the image in the second part, although it was not an offensive barrage, at least he was more convinced of his options in attack, product of which came the goal of Antoine Griezmann, after a great combination between Sergio Busquets and Nelson Semedo.At the end of the game, the sensations were still contradictory in the Blaugrana expedition. Partially satisfied because the result was not bad (1-1), but resigned because the team is reaching the limit of its possibilities and the journey begins to be shorter every day. The arrival of Quique Setién in Barcelona looked like he was going to print a new impulse to the libretto already recognized and recognizable by Ernesto Valverde. However, after promising first beginnings, the Setién effect is deflating alarmingly. Neither does the disastrous sports planning that has been unable to reinforce a team that has seen three players in the winter market – Carlos Aleñá, Moussa Wagué and Jean Claire Todibo – and another one, Luis Suárez, were injured. long range. Four casualties of one stroke and not one incorporation is simply an unforgivable lack of foresight.last_img
