Luis Enrique has confirmed tonight that he will leave his managerial post at Barcelona at the end of the current season.
The writing was on the wall following the Catalan giants' 4-0 Champions League humiliation at the hands of Paris Saint Germain last month.
The second leg is yet to come but Barca have blown hot and cold in La Liga this season, although they have reached the summit again with tonight's 6-1 win over Sporting Gijon.
That could change with second placed Real Madrid playing Las Palmas at the time of writing.
It was after the Sporting win that the 46-year-old Enrique announced his decision.
"It is a difficult, measured and well thought-out decision and I think I have to be loyal to what I think. I would like to thank the club for the confidence they have shown in me. It's been three unforgettable years."
Enrique won the treble in his first season managing the team he played for 207 times and he made it back-to-back league and domestic cup titles last season.
Club president Josep Maria Bartomeu is hoping that Enrique can still bag one or two more trophies before he leaves.
"Luis Enrique has brought us great success and he can still bring us more. The players are motivated to do it.
"We accept Luis Enrique's decision. He has been a great coach. Now is it time to end his spell in the best possible way."
