FC Barcelona Extend Contract Of Luis Enrique

Luis Enrique FC Barcelona coachFC Barcelona coach Luis Enrique has had his contract extended at the European treble winners to June 2017. The news was announced by president Josep Maria Bartomeu.

Enrique won the La Liga title and the Copa del Rey before adding the Champions League title with last Saturday’s 3-1 victory over Juventus in Berlin.

“We’ve closed the deal for Luis Enrique to remain as Barcelona coach until 2017,” Bartomeu said at a press conference on Tuesday afternoon.

The 43-year-old coach had cast some doubts over whether or not he would remain with Barcelona following Saturday’s victory.

Enrique appeared to be on the verge of the sack following a poor run of results at the start of the year and a dressing-room spat with Lionel Messi. However, the club’s board have decided to reward him with an improved contract.
