Luis Enrique backs Strength of Barcelona

Luis Enrique is of the opinion that the current squad at Barcelona is the strongest in the club’s history.

The Spanish club has had some incredible moments since the turn of the millennium. They have won a whole host of titles to reduce the deficit between them and archrivals Real Madrid. This has been made possible only by the help of some incredible players like Ronaldinho and Lionel Messi. Recent squads, however, have been given the title as being the best in the club’s history, but Enrique feels that they could have been surpassed with the squad that he has assembled.


FC Barcelona Superstar Lionel Messi is set to appeal the verdict of the tax fraud case he is standing in Spain after the Court sentenced him to 21 months in Jail.


Former Barcelona forward Pedro wants to return to Camp Nou after time away, according to reports.

The player who currently plays for English Premier League giant, Chelsea FC announced that he has had initial discussions about a possible return to the Catalan giant.

Barcelona second Title win

Barcelona sealed a second consecutive league title after a 3-0 win over Granada in the final day of the 2015-16 season.

Luis Enrique praised the performance of his players after having pipped Real Madrid by just one point. Barcelona seemed to be heading for a comfortable finish to the league title race only in the start of March.

Barcelona criticized after Dealing with Media

Barcelona have been criticised for their media performance in a 2-0 win over Real Betis.

However, manager Luis Enrique has defended his players by saying that the media have been baselessly accusing them of performing poorly. A third consecutive win in the league helped Barcelona move closer towards the league title. They remain level on points with Atletico Madrid and just one point ahead of Real Madrid, but it is such a promising position than they were a few weeks ago. Barcelona had a 10 point advantage at the start of March, but three consecutive defeats have left them in a very vulnerable position.


Luis Enrique questions his own Players over Defeats

Luis Enrique has challenged his Barcelona players to respond to the 1-0 loss against Real Sociedad.

The defeat allowed Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid to get back into the title race. Barcelona had a 10 point advantage over Real Madrid only a few weeks ago. The draw against Villarreal and coupled with these defeats against Madrid and Real Sociedad have pulled them back into the midst of battle. The team needs to recover quickly or face the prospect of teams overtaking them. After scoring freely in the first half of the campaign, Enrique has found himself in a tight situation.

Barcelona finally lost against Real Madrid

Barcelona is actually a team which is known for snatching points from the opposition and not for handing out points.

But, on Saturday, when they were playing Madrid, the latter was the case as the Catalan giants tasted their 4th defeat in the Spanish top tier in the 2015-16 Season.

Defeat itself was indigestible, but, more than that, the position from which it came, it would have been dispiriting and would probably cause a few of the Barcelona players lose a couple of nights’ sleep.

Luis Enrique says that he will not rush forward Neymar back from injury

Barcelona manager Luis Enrique says that he will not rush forward Neymar back from injury.

The Brazilian recently suffered a groin strain while preparing for the game against Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League. The 23-year-old has been in fine form this season and it has not been surprising to see him nominated as one of the potential candidates to win the FIFA Ballon d’Or award. He has scored an astonishing 16 goals in 18 appearances for Barcelona in all competitions. Enrique decided not to risk a number of his regular first team players for the game against the German club.


Barcelona superstar Neymar has spoken about the possibility of winning six trophies in a single campaign, which would not be beyond the possibilities of the Spanish club.
