Successful return

After a spell of three seasons in charge of the B team, Luis Enrique returned to FC Barcelona after a year at Celta Vigo. In his first campaign as Barça boss he completed an historic treble. In the league, Copa del Rey and Champions League the team featured in 60 official games and Luis Enrique as boss claimed 50 wins, 4 draws and 6 defeats, scoring almost three goals a game in the process (2.91% with 175 goals scored), conceding just one goal every two games (0.6%, 38 in total).

At the start of the new 2015/16 season and despite the adversity the side has had to face, the figures are still positive. Until now, Barça have played in 12 official matches, 7 in the league, 2 in the Champions League, 2 in the Spanish Super Cup and 1 in the European Super Cup. The record as it stands at the moment is one of 7 wins, 2 draws and 3 defeats with one trophy, the European Super Cup, already in the bag.
