The new boss of Barcelona, Luis Enrique has the pressure and challenge of restoring the glory days for the Spanish club and hopefully erases all of the misery that arrived during the time when Gerardo Martino was in charge of the club and could not win a single major trophy.
Barcelona has spent well over €140 million during this transfer window and this sum of money might turn even higher if more players join the Spanish club. Luis Enrique was the man chosen to guide all of these new players and find a winning combination with Messi and the rest of the titans.
Winning the Spanish League is one of their primary goals but even with all these new arrivals to the team nothing is secured and Enrique has the added pressure of not being able to utilize all of his latest arrivals to the squad in the start of the season.
Luis Suarez is still banned after biting Giorgio Chiellini during the 2014 World Cup, Xavi Hernandez is out injured with a calf injury, Neymar is completing his last stages of his recovery but remains unknown if he will be able to perform at the start of the season. The Belgium defender Thomas Vermaelen is another casualty and one of the latest players that have picked up an injury is Marc –Andre Stegen.
Even with all of these injuries, Enrique should still be able to cope with the absence of all these players but if they continue on picking up more setbacks it’s something that can cause major concern for Enrique as any amount of negative results could result in Barcelona falling short once more and having to settle with a 2nd or even 3rd place in the Spanish League. This is what happened in the last season where Barcelona lost their grasp and allowed Athletic Madrid to take full advantage as they finished the season by lifting the league title.
