Luis Enrique: The initial 40 minutes in Manchester has being the best

luis enriqueAhead of the game that will be played in Sanchez Pizjuan Sta­di­um against Sevil­la, Luis Enrique declared that the first 40 min­utes of the Cham­pi­ons League game against Man­ches­ter City is the best his side has ever played since assumed the job of Barcelona head coach.

The first 40 min­utes in Man­ches­ter has being the best since my stay here as a coach.” The jour­nal­ist asked him to clar­i­fy what he meant and even asked him if it was bet­ter than the 4–0 vic­to­ry over Real Madrid. He replied “yes it real­ly is bet­ter.”

The remain­ing 50 min­utes, Man City were the bet­ter side. The fact is that it doesn’t real­ly mat­ter how good we were or if we won or lost the game. What mat­ters now is that we are over the defeat and we are now focused on Sevil­la,” said the Aus­tri­an coach.

He con­clud­ed, “Peo­ple are to fast to judge how good or poor we per­form, we need to reflect and judge at the close of the sea­son. It would be unfair to lay crit­i­cisms in the ear­ly stage of the sea­son. If we do a flash­back on my first sea­son as  a coach here, ques­tions were asked about my coach­ing style and doubts were obvi­ous­ly hov­er­ing around. But we won the tre­ble, les­son is don’t be quick to judge.”
