Quique Setien guided Barcelona to a record Champions League defeat on Friday night, August 14 after his side were embarrassed 8-2 by Bayern Munich in a one-sided affair.
A brace each by Philippe Coutinho and Thomas Mueller with Serge Gnabry, Ivan Perisic, Joshua Kimmich, Robert Lewandowski also finding the back of the net for the Bavarians.
Luis Suarez scored Barcelona’s goal with the Catalan giants earlier having a goal courtesy a David Alaba own goal.
It was a humiliating night for Barcelona as they were humiliated in all departments on a night which will go down memory lane.
"Right now we feel enormous frustration and all we can do is make conclusions and think about the future," Setien told reporters, in quotes reported by Mail Online.
Setien also disclosed that he was not sure of his future at the club as decision is not in his own hands.
"Right now, it's too soon to think about whether I will stay or not. It doesn't depend on me.
"I'm hurt, evidently, by such a hefty defeat. The way it came about has been tremendously painful."
Meanwhile, Barcelona defender Gerard Pique is willing to leave the club if the board feels he is part of the changes that need to be made in the club after a calamitous ending of the season.
Despite winning 20 major trophies in his 12 year spell with the club, Pique believes there needs to be massive changes and is willing to bite the bullet for the club if necessary.
