With Messi In His Prime, Barca’s Search For The Right Manager Is Vital

It’s been more than a month since Barcelona manager Luis Enrique announced that he would not be renewing his contract (which expires after this season). At this moment, Barcelona sit three points behind Real Madrid in La Liga (Real also have a game in hand), they’ve been dumped from the Champions League by Juventus but they could give Enrique the perfect sendoff by winning the Copa del Rey title. 

Days Before El Clasico, Artist Tenderly Transforms The World’s Biggest Rivalry

Sunday’s El Clasico falls on a very lovely Catalan holiday known as Sant Jordi’s day (Saint George is the patron saint of Catalonia). This day, celebrated on April 23, is similar to Valentine’s Day except exceptionally better. Instead of overcomplicating matters and piling pressure on sweethearts to make it the best Valentine’s ever, Sant Jordi’s day simply calls for the mutual exchange of roses and books.

The Latest Leaked Images Of Barcelona’s New Home Kit Are Infinitely Improved

Images of Barcelona’s leaked 2017-18 home kit first began appearing in December of 2016. The jerseys, which will feature their new sponsor Rakuten for the first time, originally looked like all hell — like a printer trying to align its ink cartridges and failing. 

Neymar 3-Match Ban Made Official, Barcelona Star Will Miss El Clasico

Barcelona's slim chances of winning La Liga took another hit Tuesday when it was announced Neymar's rumored ban for sarcastically clapping at an official after he'd been sent off against Malaga had been made official.

The Brazilian attacker will miss three matches: April 15 against Real Sociedad, April 23 against Real Madrid and April 26 against Osasuna. Barcelona were already in dire need of a win against Real Madrid in El Clasico to keep their La Liga hopes alive, and missing 1/3 of their attacking buzzsaw will make their task that much more difficult.

Neymar Reportedly Suspended For El Clasico After Mocking Fourth Official

Barcelona’s form since their historic comeback victory over Paris Saint-Germain has been representative of those two ridiculous legs and Barca’s La Liga campaign on the whole.

Real Madrid's hold on the division once looked a certainty as their unbeaten streak reached new heights, but February and early March saw Barcelona win six straight matches in the league while Real dropped four points to Valencia and Las Palmas.

Why Luis Enrique’s Winning Record Might Not Be Enough To Cement His Legacy

The season is ongoing, but everyone is acutely aware of one coaching position that will be free at the end of the current campaign. It’s been almost a month since Barcelona manager, Luis Enrique, announced that he will not renew his contract that expires this season.

Messi Used His Celebration Against Sevilla To Raise Pediatric Cancer Awareness

Those watching Barcelona throttle Sevilla 3-0 Wednesday may have noticed Lionel Messi's curious celebration following the first of his two goals.

Messi slid two fingers across his cheek like he was putting on war paint. 

The celebration was intended to help raise awareness and money for a pediatric cancer center in Barcelona.

Now that's what I call squad goals.
