Luis Enrique looks set to break ex Barça coach Pep Guardiola’s record of consecutive wins at the club.
The Catalan club are now within a point of rivals Real Madrid and this weekend’s 5-0 win against Levante makes it an awesome 11 straight wins for the club. The players are on a high and judging by the way Messi is playing at the moment, the team looks like getting back on track after all the recent scandals at the club.
Messi got a hat trick on Sunday and the little Argentine is leading the Barça charge for the league title without a doubt.
Guardiola’s record of 11 consecutive wins has stood since the 2008/9 season and wasn’t likely to be broken in a hurry. Luis Enrique has now tied that record and looks set to break it.
When Luis Enrique asked if he knew that he tied Pep Guardiola’s consecutive wins benchmark, the manager responded: “Guardiola’s record? I didn’t know I had equalled the eleven wins, records do not interest me. The idea is to enjoy ourselves.”
“We’ll only value it when the season ends. If we win titles then that would be very good. We’ve played a great second half (vs. Levante). I’m happy. It’s a victory that strengthens us all.”
So lots of positive vibes coming from the Barcelona camp which can only be good for the team’s morale and spirit.
