Sacked Spain Boss Responds To Enrique

Following his return to the Spain national team, Luis Enrique accused his recently sacked understudy of being disloyal to him in a tell-all interview. Robert Moreno, who was fired despite securing La Roja Furia's place at the 2020 UEFA European Championship, has now hit back.

After Spain's last game of the latest international break, reports in Spain suggested that Moreno would not continue in his role as senior manager as Enrique was ready to return to duty following the tragic death of his daughter.

At the time of his stepping down, it was said to be made clear that Enrique was to resume his role when he was ready, and that Moreno, who had worked with the 49-year-old in the national team and at FC Barcelona, would simply be filling in for him while he was away.

However, in a recent interview, Enrique claimed Moreno was determined to coach Spain at the upcoming Euros, a desire the former Catalan club boss found to be scornful.

Moreno, 42, has now reacted to what his former colleague said, insisting the treatment he has received has been unfair, although he did not directly address Enrique's remarks about him wanting to still be in charge of the national team at the continental tournament next year.

"Until I had permission from Luis Enrique, I wouldn't have accepted the role," he said, according to Sport.

"I'm going to give my side of the story. In this puzzle, it's lacking my pieces, after I've been attacked by personally and with two adjectives which are very unfair.

"If I hadn't taken over as national team coach, he wouldn't be there today because another would be instead.

"Even today, I don't know why Luis Enrique doesn't want me to be with him.

"I believe he's used very ugly words towards me that I don't deserve.

"The years will pass, and I still won't know."
