Cruyff: Don’t judge Luis Enrique yet

Johan Cruyff has defended Barcelona boss Luis Enrique and believes it is too early to pass judgement on him just yet.

The Dutchman was speaking at a charity event in Italy and told La Gazzetta dello Sport that Enrique must be given time to implement his ideas at the Camp Nou.

“We’ve only had 11 games and in the first seven or eight Barca were in the clouds, but in the last few weeks they have fallen.

“There is a new Coach and new players so they need to get used to each other. You can’t judge Luis Enrique in 10 weeks,” maintained the Barcelona legend, who believes coaches such as Enrique still have a long way to go to match up to Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti.

“Ancelotti has worked in four or five countries, speaks five languages and knows how to adapt himself. With his age it is easier to handle matters, to see and distinguish things.

“Those who are not his age should be taking in all that experience and know-how.”
