Luiz Enrique Quits As Spanish Head Coach Due To Family Related Issues

Luiz Enrique

Luis Enrique has left his job as Spain’s national team coach, with his assistant Robert Moreno being handed the role of taking them to Euro 2020. Enrique had missed Spain’s recent international games against Malta, the Faroe Islands and Sweden for reasons of a personal nature, and he has now told the national governing body that he wanted to relinquish his role as head coach.

Spain have taken the surprising step of handing the reins to Enrique’s long-time assistant Moreno, who has been his number two at Barcelona, Roma and Spain, but has never been a head coach in his own right.

Moreno is Spain’s fourth coach in a year after the fiasco of their last World Cup campaign when Julen Lopetegui was replaced just before the World Cup started with Fernando Hierro.

The 40-year-old has no club management experience although he was number two at Celta Vigo and is respected by the current Spain squad who have given their approval that he take the job.

Moreno said: ‘I can’t really say it’s a happy feeling but I feel an enormous responsibility and I’m glad to have Luis’ backing.’
