Barcelona Boards not happy with Setien for Barca B promotion snub

Last week Barcelona coach Quique Setien Stoped Ansu Fati or Riqui Puig from participating in the Barcelona B playoff which causes the club to lose out on the TV revenue and has upset many inside the club.

Setien failed to play either Ansu Fati or Riqui Puig in their Champions League tie against Napoli — after the boss blocked the pair from playing for the B side so they could focus on the first team.

Both Fati and Puig were named on the bench for the round of 16 tie but neither made it onto the pitch despite several first-team stars being out of action as Barca progressed 4-2 on aggregate.

The under-pressure manager reportedly made a stand of not wanting the duo to play for their second side in the crucial promotion play-off game, reports Marca.

It was a game which they subsequently lost against Sabadell, costing them promotion to the Segunda Division, costing the club £10million through TV revenue.
