Barcelona boss Quique Setien insists he is not feeling under threat at Barcelona despite seeing his team drop points again at home to Atletico.

The team came into the match under pressure and amid speculation of disagreements between players and coaching staff.

There has also been reports about Setien’s future and questions over whether he will continue at the club next season, but he insists he is not feeling the pressure.

“I don’t feel at all under threat. It’s a shame. We’re having more and more difficulties. Leaving these points behind means we’re moving further away from the title. But we have to keep working and Atletico are a good team.”

Setien also confirmed reports he met with president Josep Maria Bartomeu earlier in the week but wasn’t giving much away: “I won’t talk about the meeting with board or reveal what was said.”
