Barcelona boss Luis Enrique lacks understanding with players: Bojan Krkic
The ex-Barcelona forward spoke of Enrique's managing style and his lack of communication with the players.
Former Barcelona forward Bojan Krkic lashed out at Luis Enrique and criticized his coaching methods which involved communicating more with the staff and less with the players. The Spaniard now plays in the Premier League for Stoke City but Krkic was under Enrique’s tutelage when he was in charge of the club’s ‘B’ side.
Enrique has been under criticism after he put Lionel Messi and Neymar on the bench in the match against Real Sociedad. Barcelona’s loss against Sociedad led to officials doubting the effectiveness of Enrique’s game plans.
Enrique is an ‘uncommunicative coach’: Bojan
Bojan, being supportive of Messi, told L'Esportiu: “Luis Enrique lacks understanding with the players.
“He has also been a player and he should know what it feels like to be in a locker room,” he added.
“At the end of the season, we will see if his way of managing things is successful or not”. While giving his statement, he also termed the Spanish Boss as an “uncommunicative coach”.
He further added: “He has a clear idea, working with his staff daily away from the players and there is little dialogue. Everyone has a different type of training and this is his."
There were no conflicts with Messi when I was at Barcelona: Bojan
Bojan played alongside Messi between 2007 and 2011 and revealed that during his time at the Camp Nou there were no problems in the locker room. But he also said that he was unaware of the situation now.
“When I shared the dressing room with him, things were going well so there were no conflicts or problems. I do not know if this has changed now.”
“Every player needs certain stimuli to perform and Messi wants to feel important and be in good company. He has earned the opportunity to choose when to play and when not to, because he is the leader of the club on the field."
