How quickly will Luis Enrique be able to transmit his ideas to his overhauled squad?
It's fair to assume Luis Enrique will have very different ideas to his predecessor, Tata Martino.
This will be evident both on the training pitch, where a lack of intensity is believed to be what was behind Barca's poor form last season, per Mark Doyle of Goal.com, and in general play perhaps by way of tactical variations.
Lucho has a lot of food for thought given the revolving door for incoming/outgoing staff he has encountered since his unveiling (above).
It's said, per Tom Conn of Inside Spanish Football, that the manager has very clear operational ideas, but how quickly can he impose those on his new squad?
A team that has been used to playing a rigid 4-3-3 template might not adapt so well to a 4-2-3-1 for instance.
Perhaps the manager's famed personality is all it will take to get his players singing his tune. Sky Sports' Guillem Balague noted on Sky Sports News:
Luis Enrique can control almost anything. He’s a mixture of Pep Guardiola - in the way that he’s absolutely fundamental in his Barcelona ideas and how he wants to play - but at the same time he’s got the personality of Jose Mourinho – he’s very, very strong minded; he was as a player, he was as a manager as well and he’s convinced he can manage all of these.
