Spain boss Luis Enrique not ruling out Barcelona return

Former Barcelona player and manager Luis Enrique says the door is open for him to return to the club as head coach.

Luis Enrique enjoyed three trophy-laden seasons with Barcelona. And he is not against the idea of returning to the club one day. The Spain boss said that he will “always be grateful” to the former club Barcelona.

The 49-year old followed up spells at Roma and Celto Vigo with a successful stint at Camp Nou, where he won nine trophies in three seasons. He stepped down as Barcelona manager in 2017, after receiving criticism in his final season. Enrique is now in charge of the Spanish national side. But he is open to the idea of coaching Barcelona for a second time.

Enrique was a huge success as Barca manager

In May 2014, Barca announced Luis Enrique would return to the club as a first-team manager. He enjoyed a strong start to his tenure and became the first Barca manager ever to win 42 of his 52 games in charge.

Enrique went on to win the league with a game to spare, also winning the Copa del Rey along the way. A 3-1 win over Juventus in the Champions League final completed the historic treble. Three days after the final, Enrique signed a new contract until 2017.

During his three year stint from 2014-17, Enrique won two La Liga, three Copa del Rey, one Spanish Cup, one Champions League, one Super Cup and a FIFA Club World Cup. He was also named La Liga Coach of the Year, FIFA World Coach of the Year and European Coach of the Season in 2015. All-in-all, Enrique enjoyed three glorious and very successful years as Barcelona manager, breaking various records along the way.

In a Q&A with fans on Friday, the former Barcelona midfielder hailed his “marvellous” time at the club. When asked which of his former teams he would like to return to, he said:

I think I can coach anywhere I’ve been [before].

I’ve left the doors open at all of them. My time at Barcelona was marvellous and I’ll always be grateful.

I am very lucky to have been in a club for so many years that game me everything.”

The outspoken statement from Enrique piles the pressure on current boss Quique Setien, who took over as manager in January after Ernesto Valverde was sacked.
