García Pimienta, in the bedroom of Barça if he loses to Atlético or Villarreal

The saying ‘a skinny dog ​​is all fleas’ comes as a finger ring to Quique Setién. The Cantabrian coach has seen how in just over a week He has gone from being the leader to two points from Real Madrid to being questioned from all sides after losing four points in his last two outings (Sevilla and Celta) and giving up the lead to Real Madrid, who now leads the Blaugrana team in two points.

However, the severity of the events that have been precipitating in recent hours, especially after the 2-2 in Vigo, has radically changed the scene for Setién and his staff. A defeat or even a draw this Tuesday against Atlético de Madrid would put him at the foot of the horses, leaving his future certainly in the air.

In fact, the club has already started the first movements to seek a solution in the event of a new setback in LaLiga. And the man chosen to take the reins of the first team, from now to the end of the season, would be the now coach of the subsidiary, García Pimienta, who incidentally is about to close his renewal agreement with the B for next season.

The coach has already been informed of the possibility that he may have to lead the first team, although for now his goal remains to prepare the team for the promotion playoff that will begin in late July.

In any case, it seems that Setién's future at the helm of Barcelona is getting farther from Can Barça every day, since today it seems very difficult for him to continue next season, especially after making public his bad relationship with heavyweights, especially on the part of his second, Eder Sarabia.

Setién, who arrived in Barcelona in mid-January replacing Ernesto Valverde, has accumulated a total of 17 matches: 13 in the League, 3 in the Copa del Rey and one in the Champions League, with a balance of eleven wins, three draws and three defeats, and for now a lost title, the Cup.
