Barcelona: Head coach Luis Enrique admits Barcelona's Valentine's Day mauling by Paris St Germain has been on his mind every day since, but the focus switches to beating La Liga strugglers Leganes tonight.

A 0-4 Champions League defeat in Paris on Tuesday saw speculation increase regarding Enrique's future at the Nou Camp, with a likely last-16 exit coupled to their disappointing domestic campaign.

They trail Real Madrid in the Spanish league, however Enrique insisted at his press conference ahead of tonight's game that he had paid no attention to talk in the media.

"Criticism doesn't affect me, because otherwise I could not have kept this role for three years," Enrique said.

"Fortunately there is a considerable distance between the press and the club.

"I don't listen to (the press), I'm not going to do it this week. I won't go within 10 metres of a TV or radio."
