Luis Enrique appointed Spain 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 former Barcelona boss will lead La Roja into a new era after the hugely disappointing World Cup campaign.

Fernando Hierro had been made interim manager after Julen Lopetegui was sensationally sacked on the eve of the competition but the 2010 world champions were dumped out by hosts Russia on penalties and now Enrique will look to steady the ship.

Spain confirmed at the weekend that Hierro would not stay on in the top job, and bookies’ favourite Enrique has now been installed as manager for the Euro 2020 campaign.

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.
