- Luiz Enrique who is the coach of Spain does not want closed door games
- The former Barcelona gaffer stated that it is not proper for games to be played without fans
- German Bundesliga has resumed with games played behind closed doors
Former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique has explained that he is not in support for football to be played behind closed doors in Europe because of the deadly coronavirus.
Football in many parts of Europe has been suspended close to three months now due to how Covid-19 has been killing people every where in the world.
The outbreak of the virus was actually in China before it got to many parts of the world in which country like America, Italy and Spain were badly hit.
However, football is gradually returning back to Europe with players already training in England and Spain, while the German Bundesliga has resumed with all doors locked.
Luis Enrique who is the manager of Spain has now explained that it is proper for football not to be played rather than depriving the fans right to watch their teams.
The 50-year-old added that he watched the resumption of the German Bundesliga claiming that it is very ugly to watch because of fans who were not allowed in.
He also explained that watching games on the television will at least be a relieve for many fans in many parts of the world.
“Playing without fans is sadder than dancing with your sister,” Luis Enrique said.
He continued: “I saw some games from Germany at the weekend and it’s terrible.
“You can hear everything — all the insults — and you lose the intimacy of the better moments. But we have to remember that this is a business that generates a lot of money.
“While it’s a long way from playing with fans, I understand it can serve as a way of helping people deal with the lockdown. But football in these circumstances is odd.”
Meanwhile, Enrique's former side Barcelona have also resumed training with the hopes that League resumes in Spain as soon as possible.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi is arguably the best footballer in the world considering what he has achieved in his career since he started playing for the Catalan giants.
Lionel Messi has never played for any other club in his career than Barcelona and the Argentina international has won everything any player can dream of winning at the Cam Nou.
Many times, Lionel Messi has been challenged by his rivals most especially Cristiano Ronaldo for him to leave the Spanish La Liga and try his game elsewhere.
But all these talks have fallen on the deaf ears of Lionel Messi who is not concerned or worried about playing for another club in Europe.
However, Getafe president Angel Torres has explained that his club almost signed Lionel Messi from Barcelona on loan years back.
Torres also explained that he even had a verbal agreement with current Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola over him and Lionel Messi joining his side.
