Barcelona coach Setien tribute to Michael Robinson: You leave great void in all football lovers

Barcelona coach Quique Setien has paid tribute to Michael Robinson after his passing this morning.

The former Liverpool and Osasuna striker was a hero in Spain thanks to his commentary work. He was 61.

Setien stated on social media: "Goodbye Michael. We will miss your accent and your calm, your comments and feelings, and that kind character with which you always showed yourself.

"You leave a great void in all of us who appreciate and feel football like you."

Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu also stated today: “The world of soccer is a little more orphaned with your loss.

"Thank you for sharing with us your vision of football and for your way of being, sensitivity and intelligence.

"Rest in peace, Michael Robinson."
