Luis Enrique Returns as Spain Boss

Luis Enrique Returns as Spain Boss

Luis Enrique has returned to a role as manager of the Spain national side five months after deciding to step down from the post.

The former Barcelona boss walked away from a role with La Roja in June as his nine-year-old daughter, Xana, was seriously ill with bone cancer.

She sadly passed away in August, leaving the Enrique family distraught.

The 49-year-old has, however, taken the brave and emotional decision to head back into the dugout.

As he walks back in into the Spanish fold, Robert Moreno, who initially took charge of proceedings on the touchline when Enrique left the team camp in March, has been forced to make way.

A permanent agreement was put in place when it became clear that a new figurehead was required and Moreno was handed a contract through to the summer of 2020, when Spain will be in European Championship action.

Enrique will, however, now be calling the shots at that event. Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
