Barcelona manager Quique Setien reportedly met with president Josep Maria Bartomeu and Eric Abidal on Monday at his house to discuss the club’s current situation.

The Catalan giants are now in second place in La Liga, two points behind Real Madrid, with six games left to play after the latest round of results.

RAC1 have reported that the meeting between the club’s heavyweights lasted a couple of hours as they analysed how things are going.

Setien appears to have the club’s support for now, despite reports to the contrary, and there is appreciation that the draw with Celta came from a tough decision by the referee.

It could be a different story if results continue to go against Barcelona, however, the Catalan giants play Atletico Madrid at home on Tuesday and then head to Villarreal on Sunday.
