Barcelona B job offered to Luis Enrique

New Barcelona manager Josep Guardiola (37) met yesterday afternoon with former Barcelona right winger Luis Enrique (38) in a restaurant near the Barcelona port. Both main Catalan sports papers claim that Luis Enrique, who was before rumoured to be a candidate to assist Guardiola (read more here), has been offered to succeed who was his team-mate between 1996 and 2001 as Barcelona B manager.

Luis Enrique, who retired as an active player in 2004, has also an offer from the Spanish football association to become the assistant of the U-21 and to coordinate several youth selections. Catalan sports paper El Mundo Deportivo claims that Luis Enrique will make a decision in the coming week.

I think it would be a good move. I guess I'm must a little confused? I assumed that had Mourinho been the next coach that Luis Enrique would have been in his hip pocket? Which kind of makes me "question" Enrique's allegiance? Was there a "handshake" deal with Mourinho on the table? and does he hold any animosity over...A.)Being passed over himself for the manager's position or...B.)Not being included as an assistant coach on Guardiola's staff? Of course I could be reading too much into this and I don't want to make it seem like I'm trying to instigate any sort of "conspiracy theories". I think it would be a logical move for Enrique to get his coaching career launched. I personally hope he does accept the offer.
