Read Arsenal verdict
If Arsenal were to appoint Enrique, he would arrive in North London with a certain level of pedigree behind him.
Winning back-to-back league titles with Barcelona, as well as the Champions League in 2015 – he cemented himself as one of Europe’s elite managers.
However, as with any former Barcelona manager, it can often be hard to comprehend how much of a role they specifically played in the club’s success. A potent front three of Neymar, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez were at their peak during the Champions League against Juventus.
What he would bring is a style of play that Arsenal have craved. Similar to Barcelona, Arsenal are a club that traditionally prides themselves on dominating the ball and retaining possession.
Eager to re-build that philosophy, Enrique would help the Gunners play the kind of football they want to see at the Emirates.
