Luis Enrique to leave Barcelona

Luis Enrique has announced he will step down as Barcelona head coach at the end of this season. The 46-year-old’s contract expires in June and he will not renew, citing the “need for rest”. Luis Enrique confirmed the news in the wake of Barca’s 6-1 win over Sporting Gijon on Wednesday, which, temporarily at least, took them above Real Madrid at the top of the table.

“I want to announce to everyone that I won’t continue at Barcelona next year. It’s difficult, but a decision I have thought about,” Luis Enrique said.

“I need to rest. That’s the main reason why I am not going to continue.”

After replacing Pep Guardiola following the 2014-14 season, he won a treble of La Liga, Copa del Rey and Champions League titles. The following year he picked up a domestic double.

But Barcelona have had a rough stretch recently. The club are on the verge of elimination in the Champions League after losing 4-0 to PSG in the first leg of their last-16 encounter.
