FC Barcelona To Replace Luis Enrique With Lionel Messi's Favourite Manager?
FC Barcelona are reportedly ready to replace manager Luis Enrique with someone who is said to be Lionel Messi's favourite manager.
It was recently reported that some of the Blaugrana's senior players believe it is time for a change in manager following the team's 4-0 loss to Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.
Now, according to the Daily Telegraph, Barca' board are looking to lure Jorge Sampaoli to the club as he is believed to be Messi's favourite boss in the game.
The manager, who has done excellent work with Sevilla this season, was reportedly suggested to the Camp Nou club by the Argentine back in 2013.
The board opted to go with Tata Martino instead, but Sampaoli is now expected to be a heavy candidate for the job next season.
The Argentine tactician won the 2015 Copa America with Chile, beating Messi's Albiceleste in the final, and has got Sevilla up to third in La Liga this season.
