Luis Enrique opened up about why he fired Robert Moreno from his national team staff, saying Moreno had been disloyal to him.

"I feel obliged to give more explanations than I would like, because this controversy has been generated by someone who worked with me for many years. I had a meeting with Robert Moreno on Sept. 12. It's the only contact I've had with him. We met for 20 to 30 minutes at my house. It was clear he wanted to coach at the Euros. It wasn't a surprise, I saw it coming, I understand -- he's ambitious. But for me it was disloyal," said Enrique.

Enrique temporarily left his position after his daughter was diagnosed with cancer, with Moreno taking over.

Spain president Luis Rubiales said that the arrangement was clear that Enrique could return when he was ready.
