Marca report that Luis de la Fuente could be the next Spain manager. Spain’s elimination at the hands of Morocco in the World Cup means Luis Enrique could be about to leave the national team.
As reported by Marca this morning, the Spanish FA expects Luis Enrique to be the one to make a move and that the 52-year-old could announce he is stepping down from the role.
“If it were because of the relationship I have with the president and Molina, I would continue for the rest of my life. But I have to analyse what is best for the national team and for Luis Enrique,” the Asturian coach said after Tuesday’s elimination.
Although the discourse has always been that they would talk about it once Spain were out of the World Cup, in Las Rozas they have been considering his replacement and Luis de la Fuente is being strongly considered to replace Luis Enrique.
The U21 Spain boss has enjoyed success at underage level, winning the U19 and U21 Euros. He has also worked with over 80% of the players in the current national team squad.
