Enrique relinquish role as Spain manager after World Cup
Following their round of 16 exits from the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, Spain coach, Luis Enrique has left his role as coach.
Spain crashed out of the World Cup being held in Qatar after losing on penalties to Morocco.
Enrique, 52, took charge of the team in 2018 and guided Spain to the Euro 2020 semi-finals, where they lost to Italy.
“We would like to thank Luis Enrique and his entire coaching staff,” said the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF).
Spain thrashed Costa Rica 7-0 in their opening group match in Qatar, but they drew 1-1 with Germany and lost 2-1 to Japan.
They then played a goalless draw against Morocco for 120 minutes before getting knocked out in a shootout.
Spain has not won a major trophy since being crowned European champions in 2012. And they have not progressed past the last 16 at the World Cup since their triumph in 2010.
Luis Enrique took over as manager of Spain in the wake of their chaotic 2018 World Cup campaign, succeeding Fernando Hierro who had stepped in two days before the tournament because Julen Lopetegui was sacked.
