According to global press, the blame for Barcelona’s debacle lies with Asturian manager Luis Enrique

Paris, France – International media and in particular local Catalan press single-out just one person out for Barcelona’s humiliating defeat to PSG last night in the French capital, Luis Enrique.

Rumors suggest that the Asturian’s time as Barça head coach is coming to an end with his poor personal relationship with the squad cited by COPE Radio as the principal motive for a possible departure.

La Nacion (Argentina): The worst of Luis Enrique, whose days seem to be numbered. Against an inspired Di Maria, Barcelona were humbled 4-0 in Paris with question marks against the head coach’s continuity.

Gazzetta dello Sport (Italy): Luis Enrique, obliterated. The Catalan side were almost unrecognizable and are facing an embarrassing Champions League exit after a fine performance from Emery’s PSG side.

Der Spielgel (Germany): Is this the end of an era at Barcelona or just the end of Luis Enrique at the club? Luis Enrique’s team had no answer to a dominant performance from the PSG midfield last night.

Independent (England): Barcelona’s humiliation in Paris mirrors Luis Enrique’s decline at the club. After bagging the treble last season the Copa del Rey is now Barcelona’s best best at silverware this season.

Sport (Barcelona): A Barça side without a coach swept away. Unai Emery won the tactical battle as PSG stuck to a clear game-plan.

COPE Radio (Spain): Barcelona squad disappointed with Luis Enrique as question marks surround his future with the club. Barcelona players deem that Luis Enrique is incapable of lifting morale as suggestions point to the Asturian not being in charge next season.

This isn’t the first time that Luis Enrique is in the hot-seat, but some cycles, specifically in Spain just come to an end after a few seasons.
