Eder Sarabia has returned to the news after his appointment as first coach of Andorra of Second Division B. The former second coach of Barcelona spoke this Tuesday in El Partidazo de COPE about the Barça news, his relationship with Leo Messi and his first experience as first coach.
The relationship between Quique Setién’s coaching staff and Leo Messi, the captain of Barça, was always in the eye of the hurricane: «We are talking about the best player in the world. We arrived at a difficult moment and he has shown that he was not entirely happy, but not with us, but in general with the club. You arrive with great enthusiasm, You try to change things and sometimes you don’t hit the key, it wasn’t the best time. I don’t know if Messi will leave this summer“Said Eder Sarabia.
The defeat in the quarterfinal of the Champions League against Bayern Munich precipitated the departure of Quique Setién and his coaching staff. Eder Sarabia spoke about his farewell to the players: “We lost in Lisbon, we returned and we no longer had a relationship with the players. I don’t know if Leo said goodbye to Setién, from me not», He assured.
Although Quique Setién’s stage did not end well at all in Barcelona, Eder Sarabia affirmed that “If I returned to Barça, I would do things the same as 99%”, because “we try to be ourselves.” Finally, the new Andorra coach also wanted to talk about his separation from Setién’s coaching staff: «He told me to go ahead, it was a good project. He has been a very important person for me in football and in life. He is going to be one of the biggest critics that I am going to have to try to help me and improve ».
