Setien: "I wish I could train Neymar one day"

FC Barcelona coach Quique Setien has said he hopes to one day be able to lead PSG star Neymar. The Brazilian joined PSG in 2017 for a record 222 million euros, and has always been linked to a return to Camp Nou since his arrival in Paris.

The person even admitted last summer that he wanted to find his old team and a transfer almost took place before it collapsed towards the end of the summer transfer window. Setien hopes his club can find a way to bring in his former star, even if it could prove financially difficult due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Setien may have to wait at least a year if he wants to coach the Brazilian, because Neymar should not find his former team this summer due to a lack of funds available at Barça.

The La Liga has been suspended since March due to the coronavirus pandemic, but may restart in mid-June as teams begin to resume individual training.

FC Barcelona currently have a two-point lead over rival Real Madrid, and Setien has expressed the hope that the La Liga can be ended on the pitch rather than being stopped prematurely.
