Luis Enrique will be one of the guests at the 16th UEFA Elite Club Coaches Forum in Nyon on September 3 and 4. This will be the first time that he has attended the event that is traditionally held just before the start of the Champions League.

The second day will examine other competitions, such as the UEFA Youth League and international football, as well as matters regarding refereeing and discipline.

The manager that will be joining Luis Enrique in Switzerland include Arsène Wenger (Arsenal), Josep Guardiola (Bayern Munich), José Mourinho (Chelsea), Jürgen Klopp (Borussia Dortmund), Manuel Pellegrini (Manchester City), Filippo Inzaghi (AC Milan), Massimiliano Allegri (Juventus), Carlo Ancelotti (Real Madrid), Laurent Blanc (Paris Saint-Germain) and Unai Emery (Sevilla).
