Barcelona recent success down to Luis Enrique's influential leadership

Luis Enrique is not concerned with personal milestones unless they lead to trophies for Barcelona.

Barcelona's unconvincing yet valuable away victory against Levante marked Luis Enrique's 100th game in charge of the Catalan giants, the perfect time to celebrate the Asturian's many successes and achievements since landing at the Camp Nou in the summer of 2014.

Back then, the Catalans were a team in decline. At the time, there was an obvious need to re-motivate a group of players who had already won every trophy in world football, to inject new talent in every line and to come up with alternatives...

Dani Alves awful and Neymar average for sub-standard Barcelona at Levante

The ESPN FC crew discuss Barcelona's underwhelming 2-0 victory over Levante.

A sub-standard Barcelona side could thank Levante's wayward shooting for Sunday's 2-0 win that was not representative of the true differences between the two teams in Valencia.

Dani Alves had an awful game at right-back, beaten in sprints, losing individual battles and even repeatedly giving away possession before he was withdrawn by Luis Enrique.

Fortunately for the Brazilian, both Gerard Pique and Javier Mascherano were on hand to bail him out with some impressive last ditch defending. When the...
