Rafa Marquez says he wants to stay as Barcelona Atletic coach

Barcelona Atletic boss Rafa Marquez has said he wants to stay on at the club amid uncertainty over his future.

The Mexican’s contract expires at the end of the season and there have been some doubts over whether he will continue.

Marquez was asked about the future after his team’s 2-1 promotion play-off win over Ibiza and said he’s hoping he stay on.

“Of course I would like (promotion), but it is getting ahead of the future,” he told reporters.

“As I have already said throughout the season, I go game by game and if it happens we will see. But obviously yes, I would like to continue.”

The Barca Atletic coach also spoke about his team’s promotion hopes ahead of the second leg of their clash at the Estadi Johan Cruyff.

“There are 90 minutes left where everything can change. Now let’s enjoy the victory and tomorrow it’s time to go back to work to try to arrive in the best possible way physically and try to finish the work at home,” he added.

“Today we will celebrate, but knowing that this week we have to make an effort to recover well because obviously the rival team is much stronger than us. I trust in trying to do well again in the home game and be able to advance to the playoffs.”

Marquez had been a possible contender to take over the first team but has seen those hopes dashed by the appointment of Hansi Flick.
