On Monday Barcelona appointed their former captain and outgoing Celta Vigo manager Luis Enrique as their new coach to replace Gerardo Martino after a disappointing trophyless season, the club said.

44 year old Enrique, scored 109 goals in 300 appearances for the Catalan team in eight years after joining from eternal rivals Real Madrid in 1996, and also had great success in three seasons as Barca B coach.

Now Barca board is betting on him bringing the 2012-2013 title holders back to glory after they ended this season without a major trophy for the first time in six years, forcing Martino to quit after just one season in charge.

The club said in a statement "The FC Barcelona Board of Directors have this evening confirmed Luis Enrique Martinez as the new first team coach." adding that the 44-year-old will sign a two-year deal and be officially presented on Wednesday.

"He soon became a firm favourite with the fans for his competitive attitude. In addition, his versatility, knack of scoring big goals and technical ability made him a key member of the team," Barcelona said in its statement.

In his first three seasons he won two League titles - two Spanish Cups, a European Cup Winners Cup and a European Super Cup.

Enrique succeeded Pep Guardiola as Barca B coach in 2008. He led them to the second tier of Spanish football for the first time in 11 years in his second season.

He joined Celta Vigo in June 2013 and coached them to ninth in La Liga this season.

On Saturday Barcelona narrowly missed out on winning La Liga in a 1-1 home draw to Atletico Madrid, who took the title for the first time in 18 years in a dramatic title decider.
