Luis Enrique will be departing as Barcelona coach at the end of the season.
His current deal was expiring at the end of the current campaign, and it was widely expected he would leave after failing to live up to expectations, including the embarassing 4-0 defeat at Paris Saint Germain in the Champions League last month.

Now following a 6-1 hammering of Sporting Gijon, he has officially confirmed that he will not remain at the Camp Nou next season.
“I will not be Barcelona coach next season,” he told reporters. “It was a very difficult decision to reach, one that I’ve thought a lot about.
“I have to be faithful and fair with what I believe.”
Sevilla coach Jorge Sampaoli is favourite at 2/1 with BetVictor to succeed Enrique, whilst they list Mauricio Pochettino, Ronald Koeman and Ernesto Valverde at 6/1.
