Quique Setien admitted Barcelona were left feeling sad and frustrated after going down 2-1 to 10-man Osasuna on Thursday night.

Thursday’s results mean Real Madrid have been crowned champions after winning 10 consecutive games in a row since the restart.

Barcelona threw points away again on Thursday, leaving Setien to also admit he does not know if he will be in charge for the Champions League.

“The sensations are full of sadness and frustration. The defeat is unfair, but losing La Liga isn’t because we dropped points that we should have won,” he said.

“Will I be the coach for the Champions League? I hope so but I don’t know… I agree with some things that Messi said. We need to be self-critical and improve.

“After Alavés we will have a few days off, the team will come rested and we must face the Champions League in the best possible way, improving what we have done wrong.

“Self-criticism must come from everyone. I’m the most responsible. I am convinced that we will be a different team, with a maximum attitude and that we will face the Champions League with a positive mindset.”
