:Former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique appointed new Spain head coach

Luis Enrique has been appointed the new Spain head coach.

The former Barcelona boss takes the job after Fernando Hierro’s resignation from the temporary role he took at World Cup 2018 in Russia.

Spain were looking for a new manager after sacking Julen Lopetegui on the eve of the tournament when he agreed a deal to become Real Madrid boss.

A number of names had been linked with the post, including Belgium boss Roberto Martinez and former Watford manager Quique Sanchez Flores.

But it is ex-Barcelona coach Enrique who has now been appointed.

The 48-year-old is coming to the end of his year-long sabbatical from football and he is ready to get back into management.
