Eusebio rules out Barca return

Real Sociedad boss Eusebio Sacristan has ruled out the possibility of replacing Luis Enrique at Barcelona, saying he has no interest in changing jobs.

Eusebio previously coached the Barcelona B side and spent seven years of his playing career at the Nou Camp but he has stated he is perfectly happy at La Real.

"I'm flattered that I'm considered as a future option for Barcelona. But it doesn't take a second of my focus on my day to day,” Eusebio told AS.

"Would I turn down an approach from Barcelona? Yes, I can assure you. I'm 100 percent convinced about that. I don't see that possibility.

"All that is happening now is thanks to La Real,which after my four years with Barcelona's youth sector took an interest in me and took a chance on me.

"Barca didn't consider me when I was part of the club. That is what I would have liked.

"I have to be committed to La Real after they believed in me and gave me a great opportunity.

"All that I wanted, I have it here and I wish for it to continue for as long as possible – I have found the perfect balance between my personal and professional life and that is not easy.

"For me it's not essential to be in a club that allows me to win titles more easily because I've already won those as a player and as an assistant.

"For me what is more enriching is to do great things with La Real."
