Luis Enrique, under the spotlight after Barcelona humiliation
Barcelona are in a state of shock and the two sides do not want discuss the future in the heat of the moment. Weeks of reflection are coming
There's no doubt that the debacle against PSG has done a lot of damage. Not just because of the impossible Champions League situation and the terrible atmosphere that enveloped the team, but because of the repercussions the game could have.
Many players are under the spotlight, but above all, Luis Enrique is.
The peculiar situation at the club, where the coach has not expressed if he wants to continue or not beyond the end of the season, means he is under the spotlight even more. Coach and club had agreed a date to talk about his renewal, as explained here, but this defeat has put that back.
Barcelona are in a state of shock and the two sides do not want discuss the future in the heat of the moment. Weeks of reflection are coming, but it's clear that the coach's position has become complicated.
The club have always been keen to renew the coach, but the destruction in Paris will have an affect. Barcelona are observing him. They know he has gained credit the previous two years but want to see how the dressing room feels and the sporting reaction the team will have. Weeks of reflection before taking a decision. This is what will happen, unless Lucho declares he is leaving.
It's evident the 4-0 against PSG has damaged Lucho's image for fans and has opened the window for all types of speculation about his relationship with the players.
But this happened in the first season too and in the end he won the treble. The coach is not done yet. It will be Barcelona who decides that, unless he decides to quit first.
