Earlier, Enrique said that he would not renew the contract with the Catalans, which expires at the end of the season.

“The players are very disappointed by this decision, Enrique, but they are also highly motivated to continue to work, and that will do until the end of June. We will start searching for a new coach, but his name we will announce after 1 July. It is necessary to maintain Enrique until the very end, because we still pretend trophies “- quoted Bartomeu Football Espana.
