Barcelona coach Luis Enrique: Inconsistency cost title

Barcelona coach Luis Enrique admits they paid for their inconsistency after missing out on the title.

Victory over Eibar wasn't enough to prevent Real Madrid from winning the LaLiga.

"We have recovered fast after a difficult opening few minutes and the truth is we haven't been consistent enough to win LaLiga, especially in our home matches and in the end we have paid the price," said Enrique.

"I think the team has done a lot of good throughout the season but unfortunately the line between defeat and victory is very marginal," he added. "I wish we could keep winning title after title but now we have rivals who want the same things and have reached our level."

The Spaniard leaves behind a club that has achieved fantastic success under his stewardship yet he was not at all interested in discussing his legacy at the Camp Nou.

"I don't care about [a legacy], I will simply keep the affection that I have received from the players, the club and the fans close to me," he added.
