[VIDEO PICK: Montage] Barcelona brass moved swiftly after last weekend's tie with Atletico Madrid left it without a major trophy for 2013-14, bidding adieu to Argentine coach Gerardo Martino and hiring Luis Enrique, who played for Azulgrana from 1996 to 2004. It also produced this welcome video.

Luis Enrique is the latest former Barcelona captain, following the likes of Laszlo Kubala, Cesar Rodriguez, Johan Cruyff and Pep Guardiola, to become its head coach.

Like Guardiola, he started his coaching career with Barca's reserve team. He also coached Roma and last season guided Celta to a ninth place La Liga finish, its best season since 2006.
