Lionel Messi’s Barcelona future is not under threat due to behind-the-scenes ructions at Camp Nou, says head coach Quique Setien.
Links to Manchester City and Inter have been reprised as a result, although Setien is confident his star man and captain will remain.
“These are normal things at big clubs,” he said. “Perhaps the sad thing is that these crises are transmitted to the media.
“It would be better to work in a quieter environment but things are like that.
“I don’t think what happened has made a player like Messi rethink whether or not to [stay with] the club. I am sure he will finish his career at Camp Nou.”
