Barcelona coach Quique Setien has challenged his team to win all their remaining La Liga games this season to make sure they are delegated champions.
With 11 games left to go, the prevailing Spanish champions are top of the table with a noteworthy lead over savage rivals, Real Madrid.
La Liga has been suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic for a quarter of a year yet will return one week from now with Barca commencing against Mallorca on June 13.
While the coach admits that after such a long hiatus his players may not be in the top structure, he says they can’t afford to slip up on the off chance that they want to win the title once more.
“Normally you ‘re playing preseason games and calculating the minutes you’ve played, and well that will be extraordinary. We’ll perceive how each player’s games go, and what the situation is. Everybody is totally extraordinary. We accept that on the off chance that we want to be champions we have to dominate each match. We are progressing admirably and we realize that to contend and dominate each match we have to be in top structure. We are mentally in a decent place. We’ll perceive how the games are going, and the challenges our rivals have raised. The team is in quite an acceptable condition for the work we’ve done. We’ll require another week to be in structure. All the players are sharp and eager to play. It was pleasant for us because the players rested. The team hopes to have a particular motivation. For any squad, I guess that’s the same,” Setien told the club ‘s site.
Barca striker Luis Suarez has been down and out since January with a physical issue and was anticipated to miss a significant part of the remainder of the season after a medical procedure.
Be that as it may, the league’s suspension has given him time to get back fit as a fiddle, and Setien is pleased to have the Uruguay star again available.
“Luis Suarez has had extra time to have the option to recoup and contend again. He ‘s practically at full wellness; we’ll perceive how he goes when the opposition gets underway, however, I’m certain he’ll be at his top level in a few games,” he added.
