After being at the helm of Barcelona for 3 years, Luis Enrique has stepped down from his managerial position at Camp Nou.
The Spanish manager said that he wants to take a break from the world of football but that there is a big possibility of him making a return in the future.
In 3 years, Luis Enrique was able to push Barcelona to a number of titles including: La Liga, Copa del Rey, Spanish Supercup, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.
Now it’s up to the recently selected coach Ernesto Valverde to follow the footsteps and continue winning pieces of silverware.
Following the departure of Luis Enrique as the head coach of Barcelona, Luis Suarez has gone on to give his praise towards the 47 year old tactician.
“Thanks coach! Specially for all these things you’ve taught me!!!! THANKS and much success in the future.” Luis Suarez wrote on his social media twitter account.

Barcelona striker Luis Saurez has urged his teammates to move past the victory over Paris Saint Germain as they face Serie A champs Juventus on Tuesday.
Both sides are meeting in the quarter finals of the tournament – the first time since meeting at the 2015 Champions League final.
Barcelona pulled off a big win, more like a miracle, as they came back from a 4-0 deficit in the first leg to win 6-1 in the return leg. It is one of the greatest comebacks in continental history. The achievements earned them a chance to play Juventus and the Uruguay international is asking that the team focus on the match differently.
“The game against PSG was special, but it is in the past now. We knew that we had the ability to create a miracle and we made history that night. It does give you confidence when you have performances like that but every test in the Champions League is a big one and there are not many bigger tests than Juventus,” Suarez said.
Surez hailed the Serie A side, labelling them “one of the best teams in Europe.” Read more…
Edinson Cavani doesn’t think that there is too much of similarity between him and Luis Suarez barring the fact that they belong to the same part of Uruguay and represent Uruguay at the international level.
In the opinion of Cavani, the comparison between the two players can be made only when the two of them play the same style of Football, but, in the case of him and Suarez, the style is totally different and that’s why, the comparison just can’t be accurate.
Cavani claims to have a good camaraderie with Suarez being his compatriot and a healthy rivalry as well when they face each other as parts of their respective clubs.
In the words of Cavani, “What’s same about me and Suarez is that we are compatriots, but, that’s about it. Other than that if you see the options that he has chosen, he opted to move out of the country pretty early, I didn’t. My career in club Football back home was a little longer than his.” Read more…
