Barcelona will be seeking to give a befitting send-forth gift to their outgoing manager Luis Enrique, by winning the Copa Del Rey final when they meet with a determined Alaves at the Vicente Calderon stadium on Saturday.
Barcelona have faced a disappointing season in 2016-17. They lost out to Real Madrid in the La Liga title race and were sent packing from the UEFA Champions League by Juventus at the quarter-final stage of the tournament.
The Catalans now have this opportunity to win at least one silverware for this season both for the club and their outgoing manager who almost completed Pep Guardiola’s feat in his first season in charge of the club when he arrived.
Luis Enrique has spent three seasons in Barcelona during which he won two La Liga titles, one champions league, two Copa Del Rey, one UEFA Super Cup, one FIFA Club World Cup, and one Spanish Super Cup. Winning the Copa Del Rey on Saturday will make the Spanish complete all Copa Del Rey he entered for during his sojourn in Barcelona.
