Luis Enrique confirms Barcelona departure

Luis Enrique has announced that he will step down as Barcelona manager next season.

“I won’t be at Barcelona next season. I need to rest. It is a difficult, measured and well thought-out decision and I think I have to be loyal to what I think,” said Enrique.

“I would like to thank the club for the confidence they have shown in me, it’s been three unforgettable years.”

“Luis Enrique has brought us great success and he can still bring us more. The players are motivated to do it. We accept Luis Enrique’s decision. He has been a great coach. Now is it time to end his spell in the best possible way,” club president Josep Maria Bartomeu added.
