Luis Enrique appointed Spain coach

Hierro, 50, who replaced Julen Lopetegui as stand-in boss before Spain's doomed World Cup campaign has also turned down the option to return to his previous role of sports director.

Cape Town - The Spanish federation has announced former Barcelona mentor Luis Enrique as the men's national team's new head coach on a two-year deal. Andres Iniesta remains the only one to retire in the aftermath of that game, making Pique's predicament more pertinent with each passing day.

Former Real Madrid player Luis Enrique has been named new Spain's La Roja boss.

Enrique has been out of management since leaving the Nou Camp last June.

Remembering a world before the World Cup started is proving very hard now that we're in this utopia of brilliant football and weather so incredible that even in Manchester I've forgotten what rain looks like.

Enrique, 48, will replace Lopetegui, who was sacked by Rubiales when the coach announced he had signed to take over at Real Madrid.

A formal unveiling of Enrique is likely to happen next week and Rubiales said: 'We have not spoken to anybody else - only Luis Enrique'.

A great number of tasks are at hand for Luis Enrique when he begins life as the coach of the Spanish national team, with a select number dominating the fate of his tenure.

The 48 year old's contract would be for two years, taking them up to the Euros in 2020 that is due to be played at multiple venues around Europe.

Earlier on Monday, Jose Francisco Molina, a former goalkeeper for Atletico Madrid and Deportivo La Coruna with nine caps for Spain, was appointed as the federation's sporting director.
