Is Barcelona looking for a new manager?
According to sources, Barcelona are looking for new manager to replace Luis Enrique. Although Enrique won the treble in his debut season, but didn’t impressed so much later. At the moment, Barcelona are at third spot in La Liga which is simply not acceptable.
Jorge Sampaoli has another major factor going for him, Lionel Messi loves him. In fact, according to El Confidencial, Messi wanted Barcelona to sign Sampaoli before they pitched for Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino citing Sampaoli’s lack of experience at the top level.
Jorge Sampaoli started his managerial career at the age of 34 and holds experience of 16 years. This is his first year in coaching a European club and he is doing just a fabulous job. Sampaoli did what Chile failed to do in 100 years. Chile lifted the first ever Copa America title in 2015 under the management of Jorge Sampaoli.
On coaching Messi, the manager said “Who would not like to coach him? If you make a player like Messi happy, you have 95% of the game done.”
