luis enriqueBarcelona have announced that former B team coach Luis Enrique will be taking charge at the Camp Nou next season after dispensing with the services of Gerardo Martino.

Given the Cules suffered one of the worst seasons in recent memory, failing to win a trophy for the first time in six years and seeing the likes of Atletico Madrid lift the Liga title and Real Madrid the domestic cup, it is hardly a shocker.

The board have decided to go back to the tried and tested method of recruiting someone who not only knows the club but who has enjoyed considerable success there previously.

After Pep Guardiola and the late Tito Vilanova were at the helm for a period of unprecedented success, we do not blame the Cules for going back to basics and getting Enrique to step up – with the new boss having previously coached the B side before leaving to become a first team coach at Celta Vigo.

New manager aside, it was clear this summer would be one of all change at the club with the board making it very clear that should acceptable offers come in for the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Cesc Fabregas or Pedro, they will be willing to allow the players to leave.

There will also be a recruitment drive despite the now suspended transfer embargo with David Luiz a top target.
