Luis Enrique to leave Barcelona – but who will take over?

After weeks of speculation, Barcelona boss Luis Enrique finally announced that he will step down from his position at the end of the season – his third in charge of the Catalan club.

Speaking after his side had thrashed Sporting Gijon 6-1, Enrique confirmed that he will not be renewing his contract when it expires in the summer.

This has not come as a surprise. Despite winning 7 trophies in his first 2 seasons at the Camp Nou – including a Champions League – Enrique has not been universally popular with fans, some of whom don’t like his more direct style of play. The 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Paris St-Germain in the Champions League last week also didn’t help.

It was also looking like the pressure of managing Barcelona – who have a motto of ‘more than a club’ and regards itself as representing Catalonia – was starting to tell on Enrique.

But now he has confirmed his departure, who will take over? There has been some speculation that Ronald Koeman is in the frame. He is an ex-Barca player, but he his recent record in England with Everton and Southampton may not be enough to convince the club’s board and fans he is the right man.

Arsene Wenger has also been mentioned – he has yet to confirm whether he will continue as Arsenal’s manager beyond the end of this season – but again, his recent record may count against him.

The current favourite is Jorge Sampaoli, who has enjoyed success with Sevilla. The Argentine has successfully mixed tactics to deal with various oppositions, and has employed a possession-heavy passing style, as beloved of the Barca faithful.

Other names in the frame include another pair of ex-Barca players now managing successfully in La Liga: Athletic Bilbao’s Ernesto Valverde and Eusebio Sacristan of Real Sociedad.

But whoever takes over will be under immediate pressure to keep up Barca’s recent remarkable run of success – and reinstate the passing style of play that brought much of that.
