Barcelona happy with Luis Enrique

0

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu insists that Luis Enrique continues to be the man for the job, despite speculation surrounding his future.

There were rumours of unrest in the Barca camp following their 4-0 humbling at the hands of Paris Saint-German in the Champions League last week, while Enrique was cheered by sections of the home support during their 2-1 win over Leganes on Sunday.

The Spaniard’s contract with the Catalans expires in June, and he admitted before the visit of the Pepineros that he was still undecided on whether to extend his stay at the Camp Nou beyond a third season.

However, Bartomeu is refusing to fret over the situation, saying there is an agreement in place to discuss a renewal at the end of the season.

“With Luis Enrique, we agreed that we would not speak until April – and that’s how it will be,” he told TV3.

“Now we’re focused on football and we will be until the month of April. When it’s time, we will speak about him continuing or not in function of how he and the club feels.

“But Luis Enrique is the manager we want. He’s done really well and we’re satisfied with his work. There’s no Plan B. Remember that we’re in one final and there’s still a lot of the season to go and things to improve.

“The priority is that Luis Enrique continues with Barcelona. He’s won titles during the last two years. And that’s not just what I say, but all Barcelona fans. This is his third season and things are going well, they’re on track.”
