The whole Barcelona team is looking forward to the Argentine forward Lionel Messi in every match. But still, the Barcelona manager Quique Setien believes that Barca’s dependency on Messi is acceptable!
Just one match! Just one but it changed everything. Before the El Clasico, the situation of the Catalan club was not so bad at all. In the league, they were two points ahead of the Spanish giants Real Madrid. In the Champions League round of the last sixteen, they returned from the Napoli’s venue with a 1 – 1 goal draw. In the 1st March 2020, they were in a good position than their arch-rival Real Madrid.
But after facing the defeat in the El Clasico by a 2 – 0 goal, the team is facing so many difficulties. The obvious speculation started that Barcelona has become Messi dependable much more than earlier. In these circumstances, the current Barca manager Setien said that it is true that Barcelona depends on the Argentine captain. He is the key player and most of the cases, Messi brought the result.
🗣 Quique Setién to el periódico:
“It’s true that there are players who think of connecting with Messi too much. I would do it too. Messi resolves 90% of this team’s games.”

Team Barcelona is facing many problems right now. Injury is one of them. The team is full of injured players. The top two strikers of the team Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele are out of the ground for the whole season. So, Antoine Griezmann and Lionel Messi are playing the vital role of scoring goals. Barcelona has brought Martin Braithwaite in the middle of the season but he is in no condition with the first eleven. So, life is fully absent if we follow the game of the Catalan club. They are not in their familiar form. The whole team is waiting for the magical performance of Lionel Messi. If Messi makes some magics, Barcelona gets the victory.

At the venue of Real Madrid, Messi failed to do such magic. So, Barcelona did not get the victory. The team’s performance was too simple. So, the manager and the fans are frustrated. The assistant coach abused the Barca team from the sideline. So, he asked forgiveness for his misbehave already.
Now, the team is going to visit Real Sociedad. At the venue of Sociedad, their next La Liga match will take place. The Barca manager has just got 15 players with the sound health considering his regular squad. So, he is giving Messi the main responsibility once again. The dependency is normal, Setien believes. He hopes Messi will do his job properly.
