The Camp Nou side have little doubt that the 44-year-old is the right man to get them back on track after an unsuccessful campaign under former boss Tata MartinoBarcelona sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta believes Luis Enrique is the perfect coach for the Catalans after their disappointing 2013-14 campaign.
The Camp Nou side announced on Monday that the former Celta de Vigo boss would replace Gerardo Martino following the Argentine's exit after just one season in charge and Zubizarreta has little doubt that Luis Enrique will prove to be the right choice.
"Why Luis Enrique? He knows our way of playing, he knows our style. He is totally prepared to coach Barcelona," Zubizarreta said at a press conference.
"Luis Enrique is one of those people who dare to take on difficult challenges. This is not a challenge for Luis Enrique, but a challenge for Barcelona.
"He is someone who knows how we work, the youth teams, Barca B ... He probably knows all that better than me. We are in the best possible hands."
