Celta Vigo appoint Luis Enrique

Celta Vigo have announced the appointment of Luis Enrique as their new manager on a two-year deal on Saturday.
The former Spain international began his managerial career with Barcelona B before leaving Catalunya to take charge of Serie A outfit Roma.

However, the 43-year-old's stay in the Italian capital was ended after a single disappointing campaign, and he will hope to rebuild his reputation with a Celta side which narrowly avoided La Liga relegation last season.

"Luis Enrique is the new coach of Celta Vigo after an agreement was reached between the club and coach for the next seasons," a statement on the club's official website read.

"The former international player has led Barcelona B and Roma in recent seasons and plays and enjoyable and offensive game.

"(He) has a firm and unequivocal commitment to youth policy and a great competitiveness that he has instilled in his teams."

Celta cited "philosophical differences" as their reason for dispensing with the services of Luis Enrique's predecessor Abel Resino.

Resino led the Balaidos outfit to 17th position in the top flight last term, one point ahead of relegated Mallorca.
