Luis Enrique wants to bring back Thiago Alcantara from Bayern. Barcelona is willing to pay 40m for the midfielder.

Found another great post on FB today:

“In other news, Luis Enrique is probably not going to extend his Barca contract and after watching certain Barca fans’ reactions to this particular piece of news - I would be immensely glad for him to not renew. The club will suffer (it will, make no mistake there) but yeah it’s what we deserve for being such a faux-elitist fanbase full of illusion-doused backhanded "opinions” about our current coach.

I mean seriously this guy is a legit Barca legend, was a club captain, was one of the few consistent performers in our darkest days in recent history, has won more than Pep did in his first two years as a coach, assembled the best ever frontline in club football history (I kick on the opinion of those who say Charlton-Best-Law was better because frankly feck your uninformed Wikipedia-totting bullshit) and broke almost every record in the club’’s history. Yet, he’s inadequate.

I get why other team’s fans will think lowly of him (they think CR and Messi are on the same level so anything is possible) and frankly he’’s not as good as Pep was/is overall (Pep is one of a kind), but he doesn’t need to be as good. In a war, being a great general doesn’t necessarily mean you have to be the greatest of tacticians. It means you have to be better than anyone else in bringing the best out of your troops. Pep brought the best out of Messi/Xavi/Iniesta/Keita/Pedro/Busquets. Lucho has brought the best out of Pique/Messi (again, like seriously), Suarez, Roberto, Busquets, Iniesta, and heck - even Bravo.

At the end of the day, all a general is concerned about is how his troops do in a war, and by that it means all he’s concerned about is winning. Now, that win might come via guerilla tactics (bus-parking), hidden traps (like those lethal MSN counter attacks) or by plain and simple all-out end-to-end clash (also add freakish luck in case of a certain other coach).

Fact of the matter is - Lucho knows he’s made history, and no matter what the clingy-cantankerous #LuchoOut brandishing Barca fans say - that simple fact won’t change. Lucho is one of the best/most successful coaches in the history of the club, heck, in the history of football, so yeah the joke’s on you.

Deal with it.“

Memorable FCB Goal Celebrations → 01.11.97, Luis Enrique vs. Real Madrid (away)

Celebrating like a man possessed, he ran directly towards the stand where Madrid’s ultras were, pulling at his shirt with pride and punching the air.  "It was the best way of getting revenge for so much bad treatment. My celebration shows how much I wanted to score here. It was not just that we had taken the lead - it was that I had scored here, at the Bernabeu.“ 

Real Madrid president Lorenzo Sanz immediately criticized him for the celebration. "Well, if he wants, next time I can cry”, Enrique replied. “Let them shout. I am used to it here, and I am not interested in what those people think. I am proud to wear the Barcelona shirt.”
