Luis Enrique still undecided on Barcelona No. 1

The Camp Nou coach says he is blessed to have three top quality shot stoppers to choose from but says he has not made a decision as to the starter.

Barcelona coach Luis Enrique has admitted he still doesn't know who his first-choice goalkeeper will be come the start of the Liga season.

The new Barca boss has to choose from new signings Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Claudio Bravo as well as Jordi Masip, who was recently promoted from the Barca B team.

All three goalkeepers have played a part in the club's recent preseason friendles, and Luis Enrique admits he faces a difficult decision in choosing one of them to take over as the main shot stopper. 

"I have three great goalkeepers," he told reporters. "I wish I always had this kind of dilemma. A coach has to make decisions and I'll have to pick one of them knowing that the other two are very good as well.

"It will be tough for them and tough for me too."

Masip, who played in goal for Barcelona's most recent friendly - a 6-0 win over HJK, believes he has as good a chance as Ter Stegen and Bravo of being favored by the coach despite having a lower profile.

"The way I see it is that you have to work hard and make things difficult for the gaffer, and that's what I'm going to do," he said.
