Barcelona secures a safe future, Coach Luis Enrique renews contract

Luis Enrique debuted an amazing season in 2014/2015. Winning the treble in his first season has made him the hero. However, there were reports of the 45-year-old Spaniard unsure of continuing his future at the club. But now those speculations can rest in peace as Luis Enrique has renewed his contract for two more years until 2017 with the Catalan giants.


  Right after new surfaced that the Spanish club has signed their talented right back, Dani Alves for two more years, Luis Enrique signed a new contract with them as well. The signing marks a major turn before incumbent club president, Josep Maria Bartomeu faces election on July 18.  

In our earlier article it was reported that Luis Enrique was highly ‘unsure’ of his future at Barca, owing to a series of changes like resignation of Andoni Zubizarreta, the club’s sporting director, and Messi’s gastric problems that kept him out of a training session.

In our same article it was reported how Enrique declined to confirm his continuation to be a Barca manager. “No, the truth is I don’t, but I’m happy at the moment. My challenge is to enjoy the moment and enjoy a good summer,” he said.

However, now Enrique along with assistant coaches Juan Carlos Unzue and Robert Moreno, goalkeepers’ coach Jose Ramon de la Fuente, psychologist Joaquin Valdes, technical auxiliary Joan Barbara, and physio Rafel Pol have signed a new contract that extends until June 30, 2017.

Luis Enrique told the Barcelona website in an official statement that they “are naturally very happy.”

“After the wonderful year we’ve had, with difficulties but a very happy ending, we are more than thrilled about the hope of winning more titles. Everything that we have ahead of us in more than exciting,” he added.

Despite the signing, Luis Enrique will face a huge burden in the coming season to live to several expectations of repeating the same results as that of his debut season.
