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:
