Luis Enrique - also famously called a fool, an incompetent coach and a misfit for one of the best teams on this planet. FC Barcelona is a weird club (yes, club - NOT TEAM). I love my team, but I feel hesitant to call myself a proud culer. A BVB fan can be called a proud supporter, as neither did their club, nor their fans abandon the side of a falling team and coach. Probably, we are the only treble winning club that are unsure of their coach's future. We are a club run by jokers off the pitch, but managed by Aces and Kings on it.
Today is not a day for the club; it's a day to celebrate the team. Every team has a defining era which comes once in nearly a decade, but fortunately-unfortunately for Football Club Barcelona, it has experienced 4 different eras in the past decade. The team has gone through so much success that success has become its biggest bane. The Rijkaard era, The Guardiola era, the post Guardiola era and finally (or hopefully), the Lucho Era. And believe me; every era has its own significance. Rijkaard initiated the winning ways again, Guardiola created beauty by showing that a footballer is defined by his knowledge of the game and not his position, Tito and Tata initiated the evolution process (and both did extremely well unlike what people believe) and finally Luis Enrique who turned that evolution into a revolution.
Lucho's adamant and pragmatic approach has won us the treble. He did not deter from his methods and he definitely did not bow down to pressure from media and the fans. People call him a Roma reject. Disbelievers will still claim that THIS Barca does not require a coach. I say, this Coach does not deserve any team whose commitment level is not as high as the current squad's.
During Rijkaard - it was Ronaldinho and co., for Guardiola - Messi and co.
This season it has been LUIS ENRIQUE AND HIS TEAM.
Visca Barca!!! Visca Catalunya!!!
