Enrique has left the Nou Camp after beating Alaves in the Copa del Rey final on Saturday.

His departure was announced in March but despite ending the season on a high, the campaign was a disappointing one after losing the La Liga title to Real Madrid.

Messi and Neymar both scored against Alaves but reports in Spain suggest the duo were behind Enrique’s decision to call it a day.

Diario Gol report the superstar duo told senior club figures a new manager should be brought in.

A number of other Barca players are said to have shared their view and Enrique felt it would have been a more successful season, had he had his players’ backing.

It is even suggested some players felt Enrique should have lost his job after defeat to Real Sociedad in January 2015.
