Manager Luis Enrique announced on Wednesday that he won’t return to the club next season following Barcelona’s 6-1 thrashing of Sporting Gijon, which temporarily puts the Blaugrana at the top of La Liga.

The 46-year-old boss took charge of the Blaugrana in 2014, and has led the club to 125 wins in that span.
