Barca coach Luis Enrique slapped back at the organizers of the just concluded La Liga award when he was left out of the nominees for the coach of the year award despite even leading his team to the La Liga title last season.
Enrique says he considers himself among the top best 20 best coaches in the Spanish top flight after his players boycotted the award ceremony, and the best coach award which he wasn’t nominated for was won by Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone.
When asked about not being a finalist, the 46-year-old joked at is saying .
” that is a very good question. I believe I’m among the 20 best coaches, Because there are only 20 coaches in the Primera Division.”
He then continued:
“I didn’t get any invitation but, still you already know I don’t normally attend these kinds of events. As for the players [that were absent too] you better ask them yourself . also I do not think that should be the most important thing. The key is improving Spanish football and that’s what the directors should be focused on right now.”
