Enrique warns of change at Barcelona
New Barcelona coach Luis Enrique has warned his players to expect change at the Nou Camp.
Speaking to the media after signing a two-year deal with the Spanish giants, the former Barcelona player promised to create a new and exciting team.
Enrique said: "This is a very special day. We are beginning the building of a new, exciting Barca.
"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 our 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."
However, the ex-Roma and Celta Vigo boss failed to give any his players any assurances on their futures.
Barcelona are reportedly open to offers for players like Pedro, Alexis Sanchez and Cesc Fabregas while veteran Xavi has been the subject of interest for several English clubs.
According to the Mail Online, Enrique sidestepped a question on whether Fabregas, who was heavily linked with Manchester United last year, was "untransferable".
The 44-year-old said: "We are not getting into all the names now. We do not have to make decisions now, we have time."
On Xavi, Enrique added: "I know Xavi, he is a friend, ex-teammate. We will sit down and talk, let us wait and see."
