Luis Enrique says he's leaving Barcelona at end of season

Barcelona demolished the visitors from Gijon, 6-1.

Enrique told the players his decision just minutes before going public at the end of his post-match press conference on Wednesday.

Barca now have three months left with Luis Enrique in charge and remain in three competitions. He said that the decision is hard, but he made up his mind after thinking a lot about it. He earned a two-year extension on the back of his monumental debut season as Barcelona looked to have found the flawless replacement to Pep Guardiola. "It's hard, but a decision I have thought about", Luis Enrique said. "This decision is personal and the reason is the one I gave you", he explained, having cited the need for a rest when confirming his impending exit in midweek.

"I would like to express my gratitude to the club for the confidence they have shown in me throughout my career". They were the first ones who thought I had the chance to coach the reserves, which I did for three years.

Unzue finds himself in the same spot as Tito Vilanova, who was appointed in 2012 after Pep Guardiola left, if only he gets the nod to manage Barcelona.

From everything being doomed following a 1-0 loss to Real Sociedad, Barca ended the season with the La Liga, Copa del Rey and Champions League crowns. In 2015, he won UEFA Super Cup and Federation Internationale de Football Association club World Cup.

The 56-year-old Argentine coach was sought-after by several clubs and national teams after leading Chile to its first Copa America title in 2015.

Jon Stewart's message for the media: Stop whining about Trump
Because 70-year-old men don't get less cranky or racist as time goes by", Stewart joked. Self-improvement! Take up a hobby.

Yesterday, he finally revealed his retirement from Barcelona that he would not be the coach of this Spanish giant next season which means he will leave the club at the end of the season.

Barca sneaked ahead of arch-rivals Real Madrid in La Liga after Zinedine Zidane's side came from behind with 10 men following the sending-off of Gareth Bale to draw 3-3 at home to Las Palmas thanks to two late strikes from Cristiano Ronaldo.

What seems to be the biggest problem is the fact that Barcelona's game isn't convincing, like in the past few years.

Was Luis Enrique better than Guardiola? The players are still super motivated.

Luis Suarez believes that Barcelona can overturn a four-goal deficit against Paris Saint-Germain and progress to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

"When the season finishes he will be remembered as a great coach and everyone associated with Barcelona will be eternally grateful to him". "Now we have to finish the season the best possible way", Bartomeu said.
