Barcelona head coach Quique Setien says “at no point” has he considered that the Champions League second leg with Napoli could or would be his final match in charge.
Setein, 61, signed as head coach of Barcelona on the 13th of January 2020 but his future is in doubt after Real Madrid won La Liga.
“We have prepared thinking me and my coaching staff are going to continue,” Setien said with the tie poised at 1-1.
France forward Antoine Griezmann and midfielder Frenkie de Jong back fit but are still without midfielders Sergio Busquets and Arturo Vidal.
The Captain Lionel Messi is a booking away from a suspension.
“Having all the options would have been better,” Setien said.
Gennaro Gattuso (Napoli coach) is looking to bring the club into the last eight for the first time.
“We certainly want to write an important page in our history,” said Gattuso.
“We know if we want to compete against Barcelona we will have to take risks.
“I can mark Messi only in my dreams, or on my son’s PlayStation.”
