Former FC Barcelona boss Quique Setien has decided to voice his thoughts on Lionel Messi after his unsuccessful run at the club.

According to a report by ESPN, Setien spoke El Pais journal and shared his experiences with Messi.

“It is true that there are players who are not easy to manage, among them, Leo [Messi]”Setien told the newspaper. “It’s hard when you are used to winning.

“And when inside him, it generates anxiety when it is not achieved [win], it hurts you. The demand that exists in football today is brutal, it has saturated it and others who need to win constantly.

“We also have to take into account that he is the best footballer of all time. How am I going to change it? If there is [at Barca] they have accepted it as it is for many years and they have not changed it. “

He added: “There is another side beyond the player and it’s more difficult to deal with. Much more difficult. This is something inherent in many athletes that can be seen in the Michael Jordan documentary.[[[[The last dance]. You see things that you don’t expect.

“He [Messi] is very reserved and only shows you the things he wants you to see. He does not speak a lot. “

Setien also revealed that he believes it would have been better if he made decisions with the club as a whole, rather than focusing on individual players.

“After you quit, what I’m clear about is that there are times when I should have made other decisions, but there is something above you: the club.

“And it’s above the president, the player, the coach. It’s the club and the fans. They are the ones to whom you owe the greatest respect and you must do what is most convenient for the club as a whole.

Setien took over as manager in January but was sacked in August following the team’s 8-2 loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
