Luis Enrique thinks it is time to go
Something that could have been assumed, have finally got a confirmation: Luis Enrique is leaving Barcelona!
Catalan side is now on the market, but this time they are searching for the new manager. After the last match and a convincing win against Sporting de Gijon 6:1, 46 years old manager has confirmed that he will no longer be Barcelona manager after the end of the season. His contract runs out on the June 30. and Enrique told by himself that he isn’t going to sign a new one.
“I won’t be Barcelona coach next year. The way I do this job is also the reason why am I leaving it. There are only a few hours during the day left for me to rest from the stress that managing this team produces. I really need a rest. I want to thank the club for the confidence they showed to me, and players for devotion and professionalism” Enrique told the press conference, just minutes after announcing the same decision to his team in the locker room.
For three years on the bench of the Barcelona, he won two “Primera” championship, one “Champions League” and two “Copa del Rei“.
A decision that Luis Enrique made is narrowly connected with the bad results that Barca is making. Barcelona is on the verge to finish their Champions League season in the first knockout round against PSG, the first game they lost 4:0! They are on the head of the Primera, but Real Madrid has one game less. They have the best chances to win “Copa del Rei” because they will meet with Alaves in the final.
