Luis Enrique Martínez was officially presented as the new first team coach this lunchtime and he started his job with an upbeat message for the fans:. “”This is a very special day. We are beginning the building of a new, exciting Barça”.

The new boss also made clear the kind of football he’ll be bringing: “My team will attack, we’ll play attractive and effective football – the kind of football that millions across the world have come to love – which means we need to defend well too. I’ll be laying ourt my plans to the players and talking to them so that they take them on board as their own. I don’t think I’ll need to impose very much and bark out orders, we’re in this together , though I’ll be demanding hard work”
