Nolito tips Enrique for Barca

Celta Vigo striker Nolito thinks Coach Luis Enrique will leave the club soon.

The 27-year-old was today asked whether he could see the tactician replacing Tata Martino at Barcelona during an interview with Faro de Vigo.

His response was that even if that doesn’t happen this year, it is only a question of time before Enrique takes the reins at Camp Nou.

“I don’t think he will continue here,” Nolito said. “I don’t know though, it’s just my opinion.

“I would love it if he does continue because he is a great Coach. But it is a decision over which I have no influence.

“It is only an opinion, nothing more. I don’t read the papers much, but I think he is having a great season and that he will coach Barcelona. I think he will do it very well too.

“If Barca come calling, what can you do? But I repeat, it’s only my opinion.

“He is a magnificent Coach for Celta. We are very happy with him and personally I always give 100 per cent for him.

“It worries me a lot that he could go. I think that if Barca want him he will go. Who wouldn’t want to go to Barca?”
