Las Palmas president Ramirez blasts Setien for criticising Messi at Barcelona

Las Palmas president Miguel Angel Ramirez has hit out at Quique Setien over his criticism of Barcelona star Leo Messi.

Setien, who was in charge at Las Palmas between 2015 and 2017, hit the headlines in the last couple of weeks after making some derogatory claims about Barcelona star Lionel Messi, following their short stint together at the Camp Nou.

"Setien likes the limelight," Ramirez told Radio MARCA.

"There's not much merit in saying what Messi did when he left the club.

"He did the same with Las Palmas and Lugo, but that does not detract from the fact that he is a good coach."
