Luis Enrique becomes new Barca boss

FC's Sid Lowe weighs in on the possibility of Luis Enrique coaching Barcelona next season.

Luis Enrique has been confirmed as the new manager of La Liga giants Barcelona, while also announcing the signing of goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Former Barca midfielder Enrique has agreed a two-year deal at the Camp Nou, succeeding Gerardo Martino at the helm.

Martino confirmed he was to leave the Catalan side on Sunday after just a year in charge, paving the way for Enrique to take over, after he announced he was to part company with Celta Vigo last week.

A statement on the club's official website read: "The FC Barcelona board of directors have this evening confirmed Luis Enrique Martíneza the new first team coach, following a proposal from sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta. Luis Enrique, 44 , will sign a two-year deal."

Luis Enrique won two La Liga titles, Copa del Reys and the Cup Winners' Cup during his eight years as a player at the Camp Nou, also captaining the side.

He started his managerial career with the B team before moving on to Roma, spending just a single season in the Italian capital.

His return to Barca as first-team boss sees him follow in the footsteps of Pep Guardiola as the only man to be the club's captain, B team coach and first-team manager.

Barcelona also announced on their Twitter account that ter Stegen has joined the club from Borussia Moenchengladbach.

Ter Stegen's arrival this summer had been uncertain after Barca were given a transfer ban by FIFA, before the punishment was suspended, pending an appeal.

Rafinha and Gerard Deulofeu, who were on loan at Celta Vigo and Everton respectively last season, will also return to the club.

The news follows Barca's confirmation that star player Lionel Messi has signed a new contract at the Camp Nou.

Information from the Press Association was used in this report.
