Luis Enrique confirmed as new Spain national team manager

The former Barcelona, Roma and Celta Vigo coach has agreed a two-year deal with the Spanish national team.


The 2010 champions were knocked out by Russia in the last 16 after a campaign that began with the departure of Julen Lopetegui following his appointment as Real Madrid boss. 


Fernando Hierro took the job for the tournament but has not stayed on and Enrique has now been named as the new coach.


He will lead his country into the qualifying campaign for Euro 2020 and possibly into the next World Cup at Qatar.
