  • Spain knocked out of World Cup 2018

Spain have named Luis Enrique as their new head coach after Fernando Hierro stepped down from temporary charge following their last-16 World Cup exit to Russia, the Spanish Football Federation (SFF) have announced.

Fernando Hierro is to leave the Royal Spanish Football Federation after ruling out a return to his former role as sporting director.

Fernando Hierro, previously the RFEF's sporting director, took over on a temporary basis for the tournament, but has not continued following Spain's disappointing showing in Russian Federation.

Lopetegui had been appointed as new Real Madrid manager and was destined to take over after the tournament in Russian Federation but RFEF president Luis Rubiales was not happy with Lopetegui not informing him about his decision.

Enrique, who played for Real Madrid and Barcelona, won the La Liga, Spanish Cup and Champions League treble as Barca manager in 2015.

Enrique has beaten off competition from an array of candidates to lead Spain, for whom he scored 12 goals in 62 games.




Luis Enrique has been appointed as the new manager of Spain.

Spain legend Fernando Hierro guided his team through the group stage but was powerless to stop them being dumped out of the tournament on penalties by hosts Russian Federation in the round of 16.

"I don't think you can talk about the team breaking down or collapsing".

Quique Sanchez Flores, Michel and Roberto Martinez are also contenders for the vacant position.

Barcelona then won the World Club Cup and at the end of the 2015-16 season added another Spanish double.

He previously coached Celta Vigo and Barca's reserves, as well as Serie A side Roma.
