Luis Enrique Martínez closed his cycle in Barcelona with a title, the ninth of his path like Barcelona, what plants him in the podium of technicians with more titles, only by behind Cruyff (11) and Guardiola (14). The Asturian, more than remarkable.

Of the glory to a fault of ambition and regeneration

It reached the peak in his first course with a triplete unforgettable. In the Champions, the prize more codiciado, the Barça showed an overwhelming superiority in front of all his rivals. And clear, was so precocious the glory, that keep the hunger was an arduous task. "This team always wants to win", said at all more begin his second course. But this level of intensity of the first year already began to lose , very little by little. 

It is not that it lost the illusion for winning, but was palpable that Luis Enrique was not able to transmit the same to his players. This and that the rivals looked for increasingly antidotes to brake to the MSN, of which the Barça happened to depend in excess -especially in the distribution of goals-. Still and like this, it won the League in the Calderón. The Supercopa of Spain, a borrón that remained in anecdótico. 

And this course has been the evident proof that a team champion needs to regenerate if it wants to keep in the elite. Because the risk to go in in loop and with the same players -and if on the signings do not work- is used to to translate in disappointments. In the Champions, two painful defeats. The night of Paris could save with a gesta irrepetible in the Camp Nou. The one of Turín no longer. Neither the invention of the 3-4-3, interesting in his idea and effective in his execution, sufficed.

In the League was missing the necessary regularity to surpass to the Madrid. It failed in the most unexpected places, because in front of the big rivals has won -or empatado-. In definite, Luis Enrique could compare to a Coca-Tail: when it opened it arrived an explosion that little by little has gone diminishing. 

He goes with the very calm consciousness

It does some weeks, in a press conference, Luis Enrique showed his indifference in front of the inheritance that can leave in the club: "Really right now I do not think in this, me important quite little if I leave a lot of or little. I remain me with the affection and the recognition of all the people, that is a lot".
