Official: Spain Announce New Boss

After their shocking campaign at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Spain have now announced a former FC Barcelona boss as their new coach.

Luis Enrique, who won nine trophies with the Catalan giants between 2014 and 2017, has been confirmed as new La Furia Roja boss by the Spanish FA.

The 48-year-old signed a two-year contract just a day after interim boss Fernando Hierro left his post.

Spain went into the 2018 FIFA World Cup without a coach after Julen Lopetegui, who had not lost a game in two years, was sacked on the eve of the World Cup.

Lopetegui had been appointed as new Real Madrid manager and was destined to take over after the tournament in Russia but RFEF president Luis Rubiales was not happy with Lopetegui not informing him about his decision.

His assistant, Hierro took over and guided Spain into the last 16, where they were knocked out on penalties by Russia. Spain left the tournament after winning just one game.
