‘Luis Enrique represents continuity’

Former Barcelona midfielder Victor Munoz has affirmed his hope that the club move for Luis Enrique over Gerardo Martino.

It is generally assumed that Barca have already determined that their replacement for the departed Tito Vilanova will either be former Newell’s Old Boys man Martino or Celta Vigo’s newly-appointed Enrique.

Whilst sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta is seen as in Argentina today to meet with Martino, Munoz hopes that it does not rule out the chance of the club bringing back their former player and Barca B Coach Enrique.

“Luis Enrique represents continuity for his character and his approach and the philosophy of play, whilst following an idea that is the football of Barcelona,” reflected Munoz, who played over 200 times for Barca during the 1980s.

“I think he would bring continuity. I do not believe that Martino is feasible because it would be a total change.

“Although they say he is a Coach who likes a passing philosophy, I think he will totally change the style of Barca, so I believe it will be Luis Enrique, by logic.”
