"We have to adapt to Setien"
As Setien himself explained shortly afterwards in the post-match press conference, Busquets put Barca's problems down to a lack of understanding between the players and the coach. "We are definitely going to get better, but it's true that we didn't have the depth that we wanted in the first half because we still have to adapt to the new coach," he told 'Movistar+."
"We've got a number '9' injured as well as others who can play that role, but it's not for me to sign players. Those of us which are here have to get the job done," he added.
He admitted that the opponents were better. "Today against Valencia, they scored the first goal when we were better and in the second half, something similar happened because we were controlling the game and they scored the second," Busquets concluded.
