REVEALED: Barcelona president Bartomeu met with Setien at coach's home

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has held crunch talks with Quique Setien at the coach's home.

RAC1 says Bartomeu wanted to show Setien his support for him after Saturday's difficult 2-2 draw at Celta Vigo.

He was accompanied by the sports director Eric Abidal, team manager Javier Bordas and the CEO of Barca Grascar Grau. The visit was made on Sunday.

Missing from the summit was Setien's assistant coach Eder Sarabia.

It's suggested the Sunday get-together was a positive experience for all and ended with hugs. But there remains doubts about Setien's job status for next season.
