FIFA World Cup: Why did Spain’s coach resign?

Madrid: Luis Enrique resigned as head coach of Spain after his team was ousted from the FIFA World Cup 2022 by Morocco.

The 52-year-old was in charge of the team since 2018 and led Spain to the semi-finals of Euro 2020.

The Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) issued a statement thanking Enrique for his service and expressed his desire to start a new project for the national team.

“The RFEF would like to thank Luis Enrique and his entire coaching staff for being at the helm of the full national team in recent years,” the statement read.

“The sports management of the RFEF has transferred to the President a report in which it has been determined that a new project should be started for the Spanish team with the aim of continuing the growth achieved in recent years thanks to the work done by Luís. Should be Enrique and his associates.

It added, “Both president Luis Rubiales and sporting director José Francisco Molina have communicated this decision to the coaches.”
