After four years in charge of the Spanish national team, Luis Enrique has been sacked as the head coach following Spain’s elimination from the 2022 World Cup at the hands of Morocco.

Lucho took over La Roja back in 2018 after the 2018 world Cup. Under his management, Spain reached the semi-finals of the 2020 European Championship and the final of the 2021 UEFA Nations League.

He has instilled an impressive style of football for Spain, something they had lost after Vincente del Bosque left the team. However, that has clearly not been enough, as the elimination from the World Cup has proved.

Across 44 games in charge, Enrique won 24 games, drawing 11, and losing just nine. Meanwhile, there are reports that Spain are looking to appoint one of Luis de la Fuente, Marcelino, and Roberto Martinez as his replacement.
