Senior players at Spanish side Barcelona have reportedly kicked against the choice of the club's chiefs appointing former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino as their new coach.
There have been reports that Barcelona chiefs are considering sacking current handler Quique Setien because of their embarrassing defeat against Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
Barcelona suffered their heaviest defeat ever in their history against the German side in which the likes of Lionel Messi and Suarez failed to impress.
And Setien is believed to be the first man who would leave the Nou Camp this summer so as for a new gaffer to come in.
Since he was sacked at Premier League side Spurs last year, Pochettino has not gotten another job despite taking the club to the Champions League final.
Spurs' chiefs wanted the Argentine coach to win the Champions League which the club failed to lift.
Previously, it was claimed that Pochettino stated that he would rather take up a job at working at a farm rather than becoming Barcelona manager.
And according to the report on UK Sun, that statement is about to haunt him as Barcelona stars are not ready to be under him.
Senior players like Lionel Messi, who have a huge influence on decisions at the club, refuse to bury the hatchet.
Even important figures behind the scenes are encouraging president Josep Bartomeu to look elsewhere.
The Catalans have also been linked with former player and Arsenal legend Thierry Henry to become next manager at Barcelona.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Premier League giants Manchester City are now reportedly ready to pay whatever it takes for them to lure Barcelona legend Lionel Messi to the Etihad stadium this summer.
This comes hours after the Citizens were sent out of the Champions League losing against Lyon 3-1 in the quarterfinal of the competition.
After losing their Premier League title to Liverpool at the 2019/20 season, Manchester City shifted their attention to the Champions League with the hope of going far.
But the Citizens will now have to start planning for next season for the possibility of them fighting for the Champions League title.
