Luis Enrique has threatened to quit Barcelona if he doesn't have the 100% backing of the club's players, following reports of a meeting between president Josep Bartomeu and Lionel Messi. The pair met following the 5-0 victory over Elche on Thursday night, with a Spanish television station claiming the Barca chief had promised to axe the coach following Sunday's clash with Atletico Madrid. Luis Enrique has now reacted to the latest round of rumours by revealing he will walk away if all of his players are not in support of his leadership. "I work everyday 100 per cent but I assure you that I'll quit if my players don't follow me," he said. "That hasn't happened during my career as coach. The players and technical team, we are not involved in these aspects. A tumultuous week off the pitch at Barcelona saw sporting director Andoni Zubizaretta sacked, his assistant and club legend Carles Puyol quit and presidential elections brought forward a year in the aftermath. This latest episode followed on from the news ...
Luis Suarez faces an uncertain future at Barcelona following the dismissal of sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta and the resignation of his assistant Carles Puyol. The Uruguay striker is coming under increasing scrutiny at the Nou Camp since his £75million move from Liverpool and is under pressure to rediscover his goal-scoring form. Despite just three goals in 12 games since his move from Anfield in the summer, his situation at Barcelona will be monitored by the top clubs in the Barclays Premier League. [ 318 more words. ]
La Liga: Are Barcelona in crisis? Five problems currently gripping the Camp Nou giants The year may only be a week old but Barcelona have already been engulfed in a storm in the days since Luis Enrique's side slipped to a damaging away defeat at David Moyes' Real Sociedad on Sunday. Amid plenty of speculation regarding both on and off-pitch matters at Camp Nou – including the future of star player Lionel Messi – we take a look at five of the biggest problems currently gripping the Catalan club. Instability at the top The growing sense that Barcelona are a club descending into crisis was heightened the day after the team’s loss to Real Sociedad when they sacked Andoni Zubizarreta as director of football after four years in the job. The former Camp Nou goalkeeper’s sudden departure was followed within the hour by his assistant Carles Puyol, the club legend and ex-captain who only retired from playing last summer. The statement announcing Zubizarreta’s departure made clear that the decision had bee ...

FC Barcelona reach agreement with Arsenal for Thomas Vermaelen Belgium will leave The Gunners in £15million deal Arsenal and FC Barcelona have reached an agreement for the sale of defender Thomas Vermaelen. The Belgium international has been linked with a Summer exit after falling down the pecking order at the North London club, despite still being the captain, and he will now fly to Spain in order to complete a medical and agree personal terms with the Catalan side. The fee is reported to be around £15million, which Arsene Wenger will look to use to sign a new centre-defender as Vermaelen's replacement, as the club currently only have two recognised defenders in Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker, with the latter still yet to return to pre-season. Barca have been on the look-out for a new centre-back since Carles Puyol announced his retirement, and with news that Vermaelen was available, they moved in and beat Manchester United to his signature, after the Premier League side pulled out due to Arsena ...

Rooney scored in the 55th minute, volleying home a long cross from Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez. Mata got the go-ahead goal shortly afterward, and United held on to capture the eight-team event.

that's where future Barca and the previous incarnation disappear on diverging paths. From a club drilled on the philosophy of La Masia, developing their own prodigious talents to supplement superstar signings, they now appear more keen to follow the Real Madrid doctrine. Buy world stars, and ask questions later. Suarez wasn't necessary, in the same way that James Rodriguez wasn't necessary for Madrid. But the precedent appears to have been set. Neymar, Messi, Suarez... and whoever else we have left. Cesc Fabregas, Thiago Alcantara, Victor Valdes, Carles Puyol - the Catalan heart of the team has dispersed. Xavi, an ageing legend, looks to be retained. At every turn, logic and long-term consideration seem inconsequential. Will it still be Barcelona ??

Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany has revealed he’s been “close” to Barcelona in the past but insists he has no plans to trade the Premier League champions for the La Liga giants this summer. Barcelona have long admired the Belgium international and have been strongly tipped to firm up their interest this year following the retirement of long-serving centre-back Carles Puyol. Kompany, who has been an integral player for City since his £6m switch from Hamburg in 2008, admits he has had contact with the Catalan club in previous years but says he has no offer on the table at the moment. The 28-year-old told Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo: “I’ve been close to signing for Barcelona on a few occasions – there were contacts – but in recent times, officially, I can assure you that there has not been anything that I know of. “I have a contract in place with Manchester City, I’m very happy, we have won the Premier League and we have a serious and attractive project.

REVEALED: Barcelona board want to see Liverpool's Luis Suarez at Camp Nou Luis Suarez is a wanted man with Barcelona board members expressing a strong desire to see the Liverpool hitman at the Camp Nou. Suarez will start for Uruguay in their must-win World Cup Group D game tonight (8pm) against England, just a month after undergoing keyhole surgery. Suarez, who rattled home 31 goals last term, has been the subject of unrelenting speculation again this summer, with Real Madrid linked with him. It is thought they are lining up a £70m bid for Suarez, who only signed a new long-term contract for the Reds back in December. Spanish paper Sport claims Barca President Josep Maria Bartomeu canvassed the opinion of his boardmembers and they made it clear who they would most like to see this summer - Suarez. Barcelona it is thought are keen on strengthening their defence first following the departure of Carles Puyol. Napoli's Gonzalo Higuain is another name that has cropped up as a Barca transfer target, as they se ...
While Spain ended the road to their title defence in rather sad way, it also marked the most probable end to the figures that were the heart and soul of the memorable and magnificent Spanish Era, the Tika Tika nation, Xavi Hernandez, Andries Iniesta, Xabi Alonso, Fernando Torres, David Villa, St Iker Casillas, Carles Puyol. These Players are the legends of the Spanish football and they have won most, if not all the medals that the Club football and International football had to offer, The World Cup, Uefa Euro, Uefa Champions League and their respective domestic titles. They will look back at the years they have dominated the world, 2008 to 2014.
Thank you Spain for wonderful 6 years of gorgeous football and true enjoyment, time to rebuild, find your new Carles Puyol find your new Xavi Hernandez and the rest of your stars and you will be back, but not yet.not yet . the cup is Brazilian. oh .F England :) ;)

A lengthy Article , But if you are interested in Barcelona's New Boss decisions then you will love it :P 5 Major Decisions Lucho must address to start the Next season 1. Who will play alongside Neymar and Messi. It would be a fairly safe bet to assume that Lionel Messi and Neymar will take up two of the three attacking berths available in the 4-3-3 system that Lucho will play. With just one spot left, perhaps on the right side of the three, who is likely to own the shirt? Pedro or Sanchez or Gerard Deulofeu who has been recalled from his successful loan spell at Everton, one would think with a view to a first team spot. You wouldn't imagine the youngster would be too happy going back to the bench. And don't discount Adama Traore, who has been ripping it up in the youth and reserve levels and has been knocking on the first team door for a while now. 2. To stick with Tiki Taka or No Tiki Taka For a manager who has played the "Barca way" for years, the question of tiki-taka or not may seem a little redundant ...
Carles Puyol, new assistant to sports management
Athletic ace Laporte buoyed by Barcelona and Bayern links The youngster is flattered by reports linking him with the Blaugrana and the Bavarians but pointed out that he has a contract until 2018 Athletic Bilbao centre-back Aymeric Laporte has been buoyed by reports linking him with Barcelona and Bayern Munich. The 20-year-old made 35 Liga appearances last season and has developed into one of the most promising central defenders in the Primera Division. Laporte’s impressive form for Athletic has allegedly attracted the interest of both Barca and Bayern, with the former said to be keen on signing the youngster as a replacement for Carles Puyol, who has already confirmed he is leaving Camp Nou this summer. Laporte freely admits that he is flattered to be linked with such high-profile clubs, and to be touted as a potential successor to such an iconic defender. "It is impressive that Barcelona and Bayern have been interested in me. It is the fruit of my hard work but I think you have to take a certain lightn ...

All is well in Netherlands camp, insists Van Gaal "It's also dependent on the management, it is not only the players," he told Fifa's official website. "I think it is about the relationship between a manager and his squad. "In my first episode there was that disruption but I have understood now. They like me now. I feel there are no problems and we have a very good relationship. But it is also dependent on the results." He continued: "I'm proud not only of Xavi and Andres Iniesta, but also Carles Puyol and Victor Valdes who are injured and not playing against us. "I'm proud, but we can resist against these creative midfielders - even though it shall be difficult."
United tradition alive in Van Gaal's Netherlands Most coaches' final World Cup squads contained a shock or two when trimmed down to the requisite 23. Alvaro Negredo's losing out on a place for Spain to Fernando Torres, even given his scratchy form of recent months, could be considered as one. Marcel Schmelzer's missing out on a place in Germany's group was another, especially given his spot was taken by his junior Dortmund teammate Erik Durm. Louis Van Gaal's eyebrow-raiser was a little less high-profile -- at left-back, where young Terence Kongolo of Feyenoord was surprisingly retained, notably at the expense of one of Vitesse's plethora of on-loan Chelsea players, Patrick van Aanholt. That said, it was tame as surprises go, being very much in character for Van Gaal. His remit was always likely to be one of renewal after a disappointing Euro 2012. It had been quite a comedown. After reaching the 2010 World Cup final, the Netherlands were the biggest flop of their last major tournament, as they slipped ou ...

BARCELONA PAY TRIBUTE TO A GREAT CAPTAIN - As Carles Puyol Bow Out. Barcelona bade farewell to their captain, Carles Puyol, on Thursday after a 15-year career that earned him a reputation as one of the greatest centre-halves the world has seen. A one-club man and linchpin of Barça and Spain's all-conquering sides, he bows out with six league titles, three Champions League championships and two Spanish Cups to his name – along with a European Championship and World Cup with the national side. Barça devoted a chunk of their club website to his farewell and former and present team-mates and coaches, among them Pep Guardiola, paid homage to their 36-year-old leader. Puyol, who has captained the club since 2004, gave a press conference in front of his mother, brother, partner and friends and confirmed that an ongoing knee injury had forced him to retire. "We tried everything and I'd like to thank the doctors and physios for everything. We've not figured out a way to fix it, but I've not given up. I'll keep ...

David Luiz TO BARCELONA FINALLY A DONE DEAL. (Courtois & Hazard still on the move) Stamford Bridge star set for Nou Camp switch. Barcelona have reportedly reached an agreement with David Luiz over a potential summer move to the Nou Camp. The Catalan club have been actively pursuing a long term replacement for Carles Puyol, who is set to leave Barcelona, and have identified the 26 year old Chelsea fan favourite as the man for the job. Barca sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta is said to have secured terms with Luiz that would see the former Benfica man sign a five year deal worth around £4.5m a year. Chelsea has agreed a £25m with Barcelona for the Brazilian international who has been something of a bit-part player this season. Luiz was a key member of the Chelsea sides that won the Champions League and Europa League titles but has started less than half of the west London club’s Premier League fixtures this term and has more frequently been used in a defensive midfield role. Chelsea signed Luiz in Ja ...

Memorial service held for Vilanova A memorial service took place on Monday for Former Barcelona head coach Tito Vilanova, who died on Friday. Vilanova, who served as assistant to Pep Guardiola before taking charge of first-team affairs at Camp Nou, passed away at the age of 45 following a lengthy battle with throat cancer. After succeeding Guardiola for the 2012-13 season, Vilanova guided Barca to the Liga title with a club-record haul of 100 points. However, his sole campaign in charge was interrupted by illness and he was forced to step down last July. The club confirmed on Friday that Vilanova had passed away and mourners - including his family - gathered at a packed Barcelona Cathedral on Monday to pay their respects. Cardinal Archbishop of Barcelona Lluis Martinez Sistach led the ceremony, which was attended by members of the club's playing staff, including Carles Puyol, Andres Iniesta, Xavi and Victor Valdes. Representatives from the board of directors were also present, with president Josep Maria B ...

Barcelona: Fifa transfer ban put on hold pending appeal Barcelona can buy and sell players this summer after Fifa suspended its transfer ban on the club. The Spanish giants were given the 14-month ban after being found to have breached rules on signing international players under the age of 18. However, the suspension is now on hold pending an appeal. Barca have been linked with Borussia Monchengladbach keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen and also have a deal in place to sign Croatia midfielder Alen Halilovic. Captain Carles Puyol and long-serving goalkeeper Victor Valdes have both announced they will leave the Nou Camp at the end of the season. The Spanish champions were originally sanctioned by Fifa's disciplinary committee on 2 April for breaking the rules in the case of 10 minors and punished with the ban and a fine of 450,000 Swiss francs. After Barcelona followed through on their promise to fight the ban, Fifa decided that due to the complexity of the case and the possibility of a further appeal to the Cou ...
sign Borussia Dortmund defender Barcelona have solved their defensive dilemma according to AS who have revealed that the club have already agreed a deal for Mats Hummels. The Borussia Dortmund defender looks to be on his way to the Nou Camp after spending five years under Jurgen Klopp. Hummels has a market value of £23 million so it is believed that negotiations have been arranged around this figure. Questions were being raised whether the club would try and keep Carles Puyol on at the club after the initial transfer ban at the start of April which ruled them out from buying players for 14 months. However, after the club made their appeal yesterday, the ban has been suspended which will allow the club to make transfers from the 1st July. Barcelona are also believed to be in talks with Chelsea over the signing of David Luiz for a fee of around £25 million. It is also understood that the Catalan club are closing in on deals for Alex Halilovic and goalkeeper, Marc-André ter Stegen. Klopp, who recently rul ...
