Luis Enrique has announced he will not be Barcelona’s head coach next season.

The former Spain midfielder has been Barcelona boss since May 2014 and is in the final year of his contract.

Enrique has won eight trophies since taking charge, including the Champions League.

He initially signed a two-year deal before agreeing a one-year extension at the end of a first season in which he won the treble.

The 46-year-old made the announcement after his side’s 6-1 win over his first club Sporting Gijon on Wednesday night.

Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu had spoken of his wish to keep Enrique, but now he must look for a new boss.

The news will immediately ignite speculation over who will succeed Enrique at the Nou Camp.

Here is how Twitter has reacted to the news so far:

The lads at Barca's youth academy La Masia are pretty talented and come up with some outrageous goals each week.

And among the five best goals from the last seven days features one by U-19 star man Jordi Mboula, who dribbled past several defenders before unleashing a powerful shot beyond by the Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper.

Among the other goalscorers are Seung-Woo Lee, Adrian Bobi, Carles Perez and Alberto Perea, all of whom make finishing look easy.

After going behind early on, Barca took charge and equalised through Perez just before the break.

Abel Ruiz, who played a key role in the equaliser, doubled Barca's advantage early in the second half, nipping in to score after Busquets’ header crashed off the bar.

Soon after, Jordi Mboule broke through to flick the ball on to Lee to tap home the third.

Mboula saved the best until last as he collected the ball from the halfway line before slaloming his way through the Dortmund defence to complete the scoring.
