Senior players in the Barcelona squad are reportedly not convinced by new manager, Quique Setien's methods with the Sport via Sportsmole claiming that there is unrest in the dressing room following their 2-0 loss to Valencia in the La Liga over the weekend.
While the Catalan giants have been instructed to play posession based football and did hog a lot of the ball on the night, their lack of incision in the final third has become a cause of concern which is not helped by injuries to key players such as Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele.
Quique Setién: "There are some things that the players still do not interpret well or we may not explain them well. Nobody likes what we've seen today. We have a lot of things to do. Positionally there are things to correct because we have given many meaningless passes."— barcacentre (@barcacentre) January 25, 2020
The report states that Setien's desire o change to a 3-5-2 formation has caused problems in the camp as 'some players feel unprotected', though one of the major concerns as stated by many pundits is that they are overealiant on Lionel Messi and depend on the Argentinian to produce 'Magic' on a weekly basis.
Setien for his part who is a big 'Cryuffian' disciple admitted that his players were poorly positioned in the first half of the clash against Valencia and he will need to get them firing on all cylinders if they are to compete for trophies this term.
The loss on the night coupled with Real Madrid's 1-0 win over Real Valladolid on Sunday has seen them lose their place at the top of the table, with the club now placed second, three points behind their hated rivals.
