Spain Appoint Luis Enrique As New Manager

Spain have announced the appointment of former Roma and Barcelona head coach Luis Enrique as their new manager on a two-year contract.

The 48-year-old takes over from Fernando Hierro , who was thrown into the role on the eve of La Roja’s disappointing World Cup campaign following the sacking of Julen Lopetegui.

Spain confirmed on Sunday that Hierro would not stay on in the top job and also not return to his old role as sporting director of the Spanish Football Federation.

Enrique, strongly linked with the Chelsea job earlier this summer, begins a new era for Spanish football with a trip to face England in the inaugural UEFA Nations League on September 8.

Spain endured a disappointing World Cup campaign in Russia this summer, having been dumped out by the tournament hosts in the second round.

  • This is how it is done in the western world.
    The white man has no sentiments.
    Business is business.

    Nigeria and mediocrity.

      What then do you have to say about the Germans then or are they not part of the western world? When you see a prospect you definitely have to give it a chance to blossom. Germans did not sack their coach neither has the coach resigned. It all depends on your dream or plan for the future. It was never said that Hiero was sacked but he resigned in pursuit of his dreams. When a failure occurs so many things must be consider, you cannot start sacking without finding the root cause.
