The coach was asked what he thinks of former coach Quique Setién’s comments on “coaching Lionel Messi”.
“Leo is difficult to manage. Who am I to change him! If they have accepted him as he is for years and have not changed him.”Quique Setién on Lionel Messi | El Pais via AS
“I respect Setien’s words [where he said that it’s hard to manage Messi], but I disagree. I have no difficulty coaching Messi. I talk to Leo every week, about on-field and locker room stuff. I don’t share the opinion that he’s hard to manage.”Quique Setién | Pre-match press conference ahead of Dynamo Kyiv
