Quique Setien probably won’t enjoy reading the newspapers on Thursday with his future at the club plastered all over the front pages after a tough week.

Draws against Celta Vigo and Atletico Madrid have hit Barcelona’s title hopes and heaped pressure on the manager less than five months since taking over.

Sport have Setien on their front page with the headline ‘Uncertain Future.’

They report that the plan is for the coach to continue for now, and take charge of the Champions League campaign, unless there’s a complete collapse.

Setien knows he has the club’s backing for now but is aware patience is running thin, and if he doesn’t deliver La Liga or the Champions League he may not be in charge next season.

AS are also talking about Setien and their headline is a bit stronger “Untenable.”

They report Setien has lost the dressing room, and the board is also disappointed with the coach’s performance so far.

AS also highlight Antoine Griezmann’s dad commenting that Setien is a “passenger” at Barcelona and reckon Barca are planning a new move for Neymar this summer.
