Barcelona boss Luis Enrique is not under pressure following a second successive La Liga defeat, according to the club's supporting director Andoni Zubizarreta.

Barcelona sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta has insisted that Luis Enrique's position as head coach of the Catalan outfit is not in doubt.

Following Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Celta Vigo, it had been claimed that Enrique, who only took charge this summer, was under pressure.

However, Zubizarreta has quelled such suggestions and insisted that there is no danger of Enrique being sacked.

"It always is [difficult] when you lose, especially when you suffer two consecutive defeats," Zubizarreta told reporters. "There is no doubt [about Enrique]."

Barcelona have lost their last two games in La Liga and have slipped to third in the table.
