Quique Setien has dismissed any off pitch rumours and has claimed the Barcelona players and the club president are in good unity.

Barcelona have been plagued with a lot of scandals off the pitch but Setien maintains the club players and the president remain together as one.

It’s a tough past few weeks for Barcelona and the latest of their scandals was one involving I3 ventures.

It was claimed the Barca president Bartomeu hired the company for negative PR and it caused unrest among some of the players according to reports.

Setien has had a tough start to his Barca career as well and has dismissed such claims..saying the players and Bartomeu are in good accord.

“Of course, the players take everything the president has said in good faith,” Setien was quoted to have said via Marca.

“The captains haven’t discussed it anymore; this is a closed issue for us.

“It doesn’t help us, but this is football; the right answers have already been given.

Setien would be hoping his side put off their off-pitch distractions away and get to full gear soon enough.

The El Clasico is only 10 days away and the last thing Barcelona need is distraction from any source.
