Cape Town - Barcelona manager Luis Enrique is looking forward to taking on his predecessor after they were drawn against Pep Guardiola's Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals.
The two successful young managers were teammates at Camp Nou and Enrique took over the top job at the Catalans after Guardiola left Spain for Bavaria.
The current Barca boss acknowledged the tie held extra significance as it will be the first time Guardiola has returned to the Camp Nou since taking charge of the German champions.
"It's special as it's the first time Pep will face Barca. He will face his former players too," Enrique told reporters.
"Bayern aspire to the same as us and have the best coach."
The Spaniard dismissed claims Barcelona were unlucky to have drawn Bayern Munich and revealed he is not concerned about whether they play the first leg home or away.
"I always think after the draw of the bad luck for whoever has been drawn to play against Barcelona," he added.
"I don't care about playing the first leg at home or away. We will go out to win both games.
"Now I am just interested in the three La Liga games before the semi-finals."
Real Madrid were drawn against Juventus in the other semi-final.
