Pep Guardiola, the manager of Manchester City, is said to have nominated Luis Enrique, the manager of Spain, as Barcelona’s future manager to club president Joan Laporta.
Pep Guardiola has informed Joan Laporta that he does not want to return to Camp Nou to coach Barcelona, according to Onze, but feels that former club manager Luis Enrique would be willing to assume the role.
Between 2008 and 2012, Pep Guardiola managed Barcelona for four years, winning three La Liga crowns, two Copa del Reys, and two Champions Leagues. Since then, the 50-year-old has managed Bayern Munich and is now in charge of Manchester City.
During his career at Manchester City, he has helped the team win three Premier League crowns, one FA Cup, and four EFL Cups. Guardiola has cemented his reputation as one of the best managers in the history of the sport.
Guardiola has been linked with a return to Barcelona in the past, but he recently stated that he has no plans to manage the club anytime soon.
Manchester City manager Jose Mourinho has a good relationship with Barcelona president Joan Laporta and has recommended Luis Enrique for the job.
Between 2014 and 2017, Luis Enrique managed Barcelona for three seasons, winning two La Liga titles, three Copa del Reys, and a Champions League.
Enrique is the manager of the Spanish national team at the moment. Spain’s performances at Euro 2020 have astounded everyone.
After drawing their first two group games, Luis Enrique’s side had a poor start. But Spain ended the group stage with a 5-0 victory over Slovakia and claimed an incredible 5-3 victory over Croatia in the Round of 16 to progress to the quarter-finals.
