Still an air of uncertainty over the future of manager Enrique

In September, Arsene Wenger will commence his 19th season in charge of Arsenal. Since their last Premier League win in 2004, the Gunners have won the FA Cup three times, most recently when they beat Aston Villa 4-0 last month.

Despite not having reached the quarter final stages of the Champions League in five years, Wenger's position at the Emirates remains secure. Expectations are notably higher at Barcelona, where manager Luis Enrique took the club to a treble in his first season despite reported tensions between him and some members of the board and key players.

Despite having hinted at managerial misgivings during the season, the Champions League victory prompted Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu (pictured) to declare, "There is no reason to break our contract with Enrique."

However, Enrique (45) says he hasn't decided to stay with the club. "Those decisions will be made later," he says. Defender Jeremy Mathieu says: "There is uncertainty."
