thumbnail Hello,

The 43-year-old trainer is being heavily tipped to replace Gerardo Martino at the helm at the end of the season

Celta vice-president Ricardo Barrios says he is not worried about losing coach Luis Enrique to Barcelona amidst reports that the former Blaugrana ace has already held talks with the Catalans about a return to Camp Nou.

Speculation is rife that Gerardo Martino is to be sacked at the end of a season that Barca look set to end trophy-less and the ex-Spain international has been installed as one of the favourites to take over.

Indeed, it has already been reported that Luis Enrique met with Blaugrana officials earlier this week to discuss his possible return but Barrios is remaining calm.

"There is no unease here," he is quoted as saying by Marca. "Luis Enrique is the Celta coach.

"I can't make any comment on that Barcelona meeting. As far as we are concerned, he is still the coach of the team and there is absolutely nothing else to say."

Luis Enrique joined Barca from Real Madrid in 1996 and spent eight successful seasons at Camp Nou before retiring to start a career in coaching.

The 43-year-old started out with the Blaugrana's B team before spending the 2011-12 season at Serie A side Roma and then joining Celta last year.
