Luis Enrique announces retirement from Barcelona

The cur­rent Barcelona head coach who have had some worth of suc­cess in the Cata­lan club have announced his retire­ment which will be at the end of the 2016/2017 sea­son. Luis Enrique made the announce­ment in the press con­fer­ence room after the 6–1victory against Sport­ing Gijon.

By the end of this sea­son and begin­ning of next sea­son I’ll not be the coach of FC Barcelona. Although it’s not an easy deci­sion to make and I’ve thought about it care­ful­ly. I believe I’ve made the best deci­sion, said Aus­tri­an coach.”

He added, “Dur­ing pre-sea­son, I met with Sol­er and Robert Fer­nan­dez and that was when I told them I may not extend my con­tract with the club. Their reply was that there was no need for rush in mak­ing an impor­tant deci­sion like this. Now I believe this is the time.”

The rea­son I’m leav­ing is because in this job, you can bare­ly make out time to rest. Also, no oppor­tu­ni­ty to con­nect to the world. You con­stant­ly want to improve on your team which means very lit­tle time to rest.”

I just want to appre­ci­ate the club for giv­ing me the oppor­tu­ni­ty like this and also the play­ers for their enor­mous sup­port.”

He con­clud­ed; “The remain­ing three months will be very thrilling because I’ll give my all. Even though our sit­u­a­tion is com­pli­cat­ed in some com­pe­ti­tion. But with the help of peo­ple and good luck our sit­u­a­tion can be turned around.”
