Barcelona manager, Luis Enrique, has revealed that he will take a one-year sabbatical, when he leaves the La Liga club at the end of the season.
Enrique has already announced his plan to quit however after only three years in charge.
During his stint at Camp Nou, he won one Champions League title, as well as two league and cup doubles.
“If I’m leaving Barcelona, my home, where I have a great relationship with the club and the players, it’s purely for tiredness,” he said ahead of Wednesday’s La Liga clash with Sevilla.
“I need to recover. I’m not thinking about other teams. It will be a year to recover, but now what’s left to do is to end the season with all our objectives achieved.”
The 46-year-old’s decision to step away from football for a year, follows in the footsteps of Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola, who took a season off after leaving Barca, before taking over at Bayern Munich.
