According to the newspaper El País, the coach wants to stay, but the decision will depen on the new president
On his first season in FC Barcelona, Luis Enrique managed to win La Liga and Copa del Rey. This Saturday they can win Champions League and reach the treble for the second time ever.
Luis Enrique doesn't really like to talk about his future. This Thursday, the newspaper El País reported that the coach doesn't want to leave. "He is sure to stay, 100%. If it was his decision, he would continue, but he knows that the final decision will be done by the president, and no one knows who the next will be," said some sources close to Luis Enrique, according to this newspaper.
"If it was for me, I would stay, but you know what happens in these situations. Now I'm not really worried," says Luis Enrique
Lu Martín, the journalist who wrote this piece of news, also reveals what Luis Enrique told a player: "If it was for me, I would stay, but you know what happens in these situations. Now I'm not really worried". So the future of the coach depends on the new president and we don't know if he will count on the current manager.
After the defeat in Anoeta, with the dismissal of Zubizarreta, things did not look so good for Luis Enrique. After some time, he has managed to redirect the relationship with the stars of the team (as seen in the images hugging Messi and Neymar to celebrate the titles) and has achieved the best numbers of a rookie coach at FC Barcelona. We will have to wait to know who the new president is and see what happens with Luis Enrique.
