Former Spain manager Luis Enrique has arrived in London with his representative, Ivan de la Pena, to discuss potential opportunities with Chelsea Football Club . Enrique, who has previously managed Barcelona, Roma, and Celta Vigo, left his position as Spain’s head coach following a disappointing 2022 World Cup campaign in Qatar .
During his tenure at Barcelona, Enrique won multiple La Liga titles and led the team to a Champions League victory. It is believed that he is now focused on a move to Chelsea, with recent reports suggesting that negotiations for his appointment are practically done [3, 7].
Enrique has previously expressed interest in managing a team in England, stating in a 2013 interview with FourFourTwo, “I’d like to manage in England at some point. My wife wouldn’t like the weather, she’s from Barcelona and likes the sun” . With his arrival in London, it seems that Enrique is now closer to realizing that ambition as he engages in discussions with Chelsea.
