Luis Enrique has announced his departure as Barcelona B coach.

The former Barca and Real Madrid star is in line for the top job with AS Roma.

"If players have a brief time at a club, then for a tactician it is even more so. I must say these have been three fantastic years," declared Luis Enrique on Barca TV.

"I have decided that my era has come to an end. I said that even before other offers came in for me.

"I am satisfied and proud of what we have achieved in these three years, because I think some of those targets were thanks to me.

"There is a great squad here with players of superior quality, but we also work together so everyone feels important and helps out their teammates."
