After FC Barcelona lost their LaLiga lead following their defeat in the latest El Clasico, reports have emerged suggesting that a number of the Blaugrana's playing squad have already lost faith in their new manager.
Having replaced Ernesto Valverde in January, Quique Setien has only been in the job for about two months, but some of the Catalan club's players are already wondering if their new coach is up to the task, according to Catalunya Radio and as cited by AS.
The Spaniard has come under criticism after losing three of his six away games in charge. Overall, Setien has overseen seven wins, one draw and three defeats, during which Barcelona dropped to second place in LaLiga and were knocked out of the Copa del Rey.
In the wake of the Blaugrana's 2-0 El Clasico defeat to Real Madrid on Sunday, some of the club's players have reportedly expressed their displeasure at Setien's decision to take Arturo Vidal off and replace the midfielder with forward Martin Braithwaite.
It is claimed they feel the change contributed to their defeat, with both of Los Blancos' goals coming after the tactical switch.
However, Barcelona's board are said be seen as the main culprits for the team's current situation, with the squad feeling that some of the decisions the club's bosses have made have effectively "thrown away" the season.
Valverde coached Barca for 145 games and won back-to-back LaLiga titles, but was sacked in January after Atletico Madrid knocked his side out of the Supercopa de Espana.
