Football News

Barcelona boss Luis Enrique has extended his contract with the club for another year, meaning he could be in the dugout for the Catalans until at least 2017.

Enrique, a former player at the Nou Camp, guided Barca to a historic treble by winning La Liga, Copa del Ray and the Champions League in his first season as manager. It is the second time the Blaugrana have achieved the treble in their decorative history.

Unsure Enrique

The 45-year-old was questioned about his future on Saturday after the Champions League final, but he admitted at the time he was unsure.

Before the final in Berlin at the weekend the Spanish press added to the uncertainty about the Spaniard’s future by stating that sacked Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti was being lined up to take over.

New deal signed

Barcelona however did say that this was done purposefully to derail the Catalan club's hope of the treble by putting the players off on the eve of the game.

Now though, as per BBC Sport, a contract extension has been signed and it will tie Enrique to the club for at least another two seasons, giving him a chance to win even more silverware.

Football fans, is Enrique the right man to take Barca forward or was this season just a flash in the pan? Let us know your thoughts in the comments box below.
