Luis Enrique on Sir Bobby

Luis Enrique says he will always owe a debt to Sir Bobby Robson after the season they spent together at Barcelona.

The Barca head coach was in his first season at Camp Nou when Robson arrived, but Enrique remembers Robson as a man of imagination, integrity and kindness.

In an exclusive interview during Barca’s pre-season training camp at St. George’s Park, Enrique told TheFA.com: “I remember his natural way of doing things, being very spontaneous, being capable of managing a group, being able to adapt himself to the high expectations of a big team with different circumstances. 

“I remember that at half time he used to grab some plastic glasses to show us the tactics and movements he wanted to see. 

“He was a very talented and easy going person.”
