Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho admits he was a big fan from of Barcelona coach Luis Enrique as a player.
Mourinho bumped into Enrique at a UEFA coaching conference yesterday and explained his admiration for the Spaniard and how he hopes he achieves lots of success at Barca.
As quoted on the Sky Sports website, he said: “He was not only one of my favourites as a player during my time at Barcelona but also as a person,” Mourinho said.
“I have a special fondness and admiration for him. He could play midfield, right wing, left wing, No.10, centre-forward, right-back, left-back – he was even capable of playing in goal.
“Today [Thursday] was the first the first time I’ve seen him since I left the club in 2000. I asked him if he was enjoying coaching and he said ‘Yes’.
“I want him to be happy and I hope he does very well.”
