Luis Enrique has stepped down as manager of Spain for personal reasons.
Enrique left a get-together with the team before a March 26th match against Malta to return home to Barcelona.
Since then he has been unable to return to an active role with the national team and in a statement on Wednesday he said that he had decided to step down “due to the reasons which had prevented me from fulfilling my duties as normal since last March.”
Those reasons have not been clarified and the Spanish Football Federation requested that the coach’s privacy continue to be respected.
Roberto Moreno will manage Spain until Euro 2020.
