Luis Enrique was the focus on 23 October 1996. On 77 minutes the current FC Barcelona coach knocked in the rebound after a long Luis Figo shot off the crossbar. Figo's shot seemed to go in, but the referee did not see it and officially credits Luis Enrique as the goalscorer. Sevilla fell into the Second Division that year.
