Luis Enrique will exit as manager of Spain following their Round of 16 loss to Morocco.

The Spanish FA (RFEF) issued a statement on Thursday thanking Enrique for his service and expressing its desire to start “a new project” for the national team.

“The sporting management of the RFEF has handed to the president a report in which it is determined a new project should start for the Spain national team, with the aim of continuing with the growth achieved in recent years thanks to the work of Luis Enrique and his coaches.”

“Both the president, Luis Rubiales, and the sports director, Jose Francisco Molina, have transmitted the decision to the coach. The RFEF energetically wishes Luis Enrique and his team the best of luck in their future professional projects.”

Enrique became manager of Spain following the 2018 World Cup and led the country to the semifinals of Euro 2020.
