AS: Alternative plan if Luis Enrique fails to extend contract with Barcelona

unzueAccord­ing to the Madrid based sports dailies AS, FC Barcelona has an alter­na­tive plan if Luis Enrique fails to renew has con­tract with the club as a coach. Although the club has con­vinced the head coach to extend his con­tract with them, the coach reply is till the end of spring.

AS how­ev­er reports that if Luis Enrique decline in renew­ing his con­tract with the club, Juan Car­los Unzue an assis­tant to Enrique will take his posi­tion as the next coach. This would mean that Luis Enrique’s suc­ces­sor would be his assis­tant who he have being work­ing with right from his for­mer club.

Over the years, Luis Enrique have praised his assis­tant who is a retired goal­keep­er and was also a goal­keep­er coach. If Unzue takes over from Luis Enrique, it would be very sim­i­lar occur­rence in 2012/2013 sea­son when Tito Vilano­va took the posi­tion of Pep Guardi­o­la who was his boss. His only exper­ince as a first team coach was with then new­ly pro­mot­ed Segun­da Divi­sion team Numan­cia and end­ed 10th place in the 2010/2011 sea­son.

In 2012, he signed to be the head coach of Rac­ing but did not even man­age the team as a result of inter­nal con­flict.
