Luis Enrique, ready to lead Barcelona to victory

Luis Enrique is feeling right at home in Barcelona. The coach of Paris Saint-Germain is making the most of his days off given to his players during the league break in Catalonia because of the national team matches. Alongside his wife, Elena Cullell, with whom he founded the Xana Foundation in memory of their daughter to support children with serious illnesses and provide assistance to them and their families, he enjoyed a meal at the Estimar restaurant in the Born neighborhood. The owner of the restaurant, Rafa Zafra, shared a photo on Instagram showing Lucho with his close friend, Iván de la Peña, who is currently a player representative.

Luis Enrique‘s appearance in Barcelona came just a day after he broke his silence on Twitch, where he gained a lot of attention during the recent World Cup in Qatar. The Asturian admitted that he would like to coach Barça again in the future but emphasized that it’s currently challenging as he has a contract with Parc des Princes: “I’ve always expressed my desire, but the reality is that our paths crossing is very unlikely. They may need a coach now, but I have a commitment to honor my contracts and those who have faith in me. I won’t be the one to break that commitment; it’s not my style, and I never will.”

PSG, Barça’s opponent in the Champions League quarterfinals, won’t be back to training until Wednesday the 27th (5 p.m.) and won’t have a break next week as they focus on the Ligue 1 match against Olympique Marseille on Sunday the 31st (8:45 p.m.) at the Vélodrome. The day before, Lucho will speak to the media at a press conference (1 p.m.) to discuss the upcoming match against PSG. The first leg against Barcelona is scheduled for Wednesday, April 10 (9 p.m.) in Paris, while the second leg will take place on Tuesday the 16th (9 p.m.) at the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys in Montjuïc.
