Luis Enrique is under increasing pressure after Barcelona was humbled 4-0 by PSG in the first leg of its Champions League last-16 tie on Tuesday.

The coach and his players were jeered on Sunday as a late Lionel Messi penalty salvaged a 2-1 win over Leganes in La Liga. Speaking before that victory, Bartomeu offered some support to Luis Enrique, whose team is second in the league.

"We agreed with him a while ago that we would talk in April. Now it is time to focus on the games that are coming up," he told media.

"Luis Enrique is the coach that we want, he is doing a fantastic job, and with the exception of Paris, we are happy with results."

Barcelona has played two more league games than La Liga leaders and rivals Real Madrid, which tops the table by a point.
