Quique Setién asks Barça for four million euros

His new lawyers prepare a statement for this afternoon. In principle, and by a LaLiga circular, Koeman can sit on the bench while the dispute is resolved.


Quique Setién will ask Barça for the four million gross euros that his contract stipulated for the 2020-21 season. The new lawyers for the Cantabrian coach (it has changed in recent days) prepare a statement for this afternoon in which they could announce the complaint against the Barça club.

In principle, this complaint will not prevent Ronald Koeman from sitting on the bench on the first day of LaLiga that the Barça club will play against Villarreal. Barça understands that it is endorsed by a circular that is part of the coordination agreement between FEF and LaLiga, which deals with "the federative regime of the coaches attached to the clubs and SAD of LaLiga". In the same, it is reported that "new coach licenses will not be processed, nor will any of these (even players) be renewed to the club or SAD that, having requested it, has not satisfied or guaranteed, as of June 30 of each year natural, the totality of the amounts owed to the previous coach or coaches ". Barça understands, therefore, that it has the entire season to pay the amounts it owes to the coach beyond what the courts decide when the case, as it seems, ends up in court.

Barça did not notify Quique Setién's legal representatives of his dismissal, although in legal terms it is understood that, once a new coach like Ronald Koeman is appointed, the dismissal is effective. Setién's history with Barça will end in court. More details will be known this afternoon when the coach's lawyers write the statement and offer it to the media.
