Luis Enrique plays down Barcelona talk

Celta Vigo boss Luis Enrique refuses to discuss reports that he could take charge of Barcelona next season.

Celta Vigo boss Luis Enrique has said that he is not prepared to discuss his future until the end of the season.

The Spaniard has been widely linked with the managerial position at his former club Barcelona, who will reportedly dismiss Gerardo Martino this summer.

However, the former Barcelona B boss has claimed that talk at this time is pure "speculation".

"It seems amazing that talk about my future, but I live in the present and all these [reports] are speculation," he told reporters.

"I always want to fulfil my contract. I'm focused on the last three games. I do not know why now everyone interested with my contract.

"It is the same as at the start of the season, nothing has changed. I will not get into this game. The only thing that interests me is the game with Osasuna."

Should Enrique take charge at the Camp Nou this summer, it has been reported that the club's skipper Carlos Puyol will stay on as his assistant.
