Enrique: Atletico Are Favourites For The Title
Barcelona boss, Luis Enrique, believes Atletico Madrid are favourites for the Spanish League title this season and reveals Lione Messi is in perfect condition.
Los Rojiblancos clinched the title at the Camp Nou last season, with a 1-1 draw and Enrique says Real Madrid and Atletico are their rivals but feels Diego Simeone's men are favourites.
"Both of them, but the favourites to win the league are Atlético. They are following the same idea as last season and they have perfected it in spite of the player changes," Enrique told as.com in a interview.
"I said last season I saw them as favourites for the league and the Champions League. Madrid is the eternal rival and they have also strengthened. It is going to be an exciting championship. We have the bit between out teeth because we didn't win anything last season and nobody can match us for appetite."
Enrique was also asked if there was more pressure on Lionel Messi going into the new campaign
"No, he is going into the season in perfect condition and like all of us he wants to get back to winning." he added.
