Belgium coach Roberto Martinez denied that there are any negotiations between him and the Barcelona administration to take over the leadership of the first team during the coming period.
Martinez was one of the most prominent names nominated to succeed the Dutch coach, Ronald Koeman, the current coach of the team, due to the negative results during the last period.
"It was a difficult period," Martinez said in statements to Spanish radio station Cadena Ser. "But in fact, Barcelona did not contact me." .
Martinez explained that in the past there was no doubt because of losing 3 games and it is funny now that they have a vision and it is a shame and the work of coaches in Europe has changed a lot.
