“Of course, I would want to have him back. I would want to talk with him,” Setien noted. “The way you let him play, the things you allow him to do, plays a big role. In Barcelona, however, the main role is always reserved for Lionel Messi. You have to deal with that.

“When he was here, Barca’s game style did not suit him. He was pushed to the outside lane in a 4-4-2 and had to pursue the opposing full-back from time to time because the rooms inside were occupied by Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi.

“He has a lot of quality and he offers many solutions in tight spaces. There are not many players of his kind.”
