Luis Enrique departs at the end of this season as coach of FC Barcelona. That made the coach tonight itself known.
Luis Enrique to leave Barcelona in the summer
Luis Enrique has said that he will not be renewing his contract when it finishes at the end of June this year, saying he will “need a rest”.
The Barça coach made the announcement at the end of the press conference after Barcelona’s 6-1 win over Sporting Gijón tonight at the Camp Nou.
Luis Enrique statement:
“It’s a very difficult decision for me, one I’ve thought about a lot, but I think I need to be true to myself and fair to my way of thinking. In the pre-season I had a meeting with Albert Soler and Robert Fernández where I mooted the possibility that I might not renew my contract. They told me there was no rush to take the decision. That moment has arrived. I’m announcing it. The reason is I live my work looking for solutions and it gives me little time to rest.
