Barcelona’s Coaching Search Takes a Hit as PSG Tactician Opts to Stay Put

FC Barcelona prepares for a coaching change this summer, as Xavi Hernandez will leave after the 2023-24 season. Amidst various names swirling in the rumor mill, it’s evident that the club carefully considers its options.

One of the names that has recently surfaced is Luis Enrique. In a recent report, sporting director Deco aims to recreate the magic of Enrique’s successful stint with Barcelona. 

The tenure saw him win the UEFA Champions League in 2015, during his tenure from 2014 to 2017. Nonetheless, the 53-year-old might have to discard his name from their coaching search.

SPORT reports that the Spanish tactician has no plans to depart from Paris Saint-Germain for the upcoming season. The club expresses satisfaction with his performance, and he reciprocates the sentiment.

Le Parisien journalist Laurent Perrin recently noted that PSG wants to follow this recipe to success with Enrique. The Parisians could aim to replicate what Liverpool FC and Manchester City have created regarding having managers who are the face of the club.

For many football fans, Jürgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola stand out as the two key figures associated with Liverpool and Manchester City, respectively, over the years. As a result, the capital club wants their version of that.
