Blaugrana supporters were devastated by Iago Aspas' late equaliser in their 2-2 draw with Celta Vigo this past Saturday as it was result that saw them fall further behind Real Madrid in the LaLiga standings.

Barcelona players reportedly made their feelings of anger known to Setien and his coaching staff after the game, while some have even suggested that Messi ignored instructions from assistant manager Eder Sarabia during the match.

Speaking ahead of their league clash with Atletico Madrid on Tuesday night, Setien denied there was a big fallout, but did seem to imply there were some issues after the Celta draw.

"I don't recall any problems that are worth mentioning," he said, according to Goal.

"In reality, it is true that there are always controversies, as in life, and it is normal that there are differences. But this has always happened. I was not an easy player either. What we have to try to do is to convince everyone of the common idea. 

"I understand it as something natural. There is good communication. I don't give it any importance. When there are no victories, when things happen, everyone makes their point. This is the circus in which we show ourselves.

"The relationship between the players is good."
