    As I made reference too during the last Euro qualifiers that this was the second round of qualifiers that Luis Enrique had missed due to personal reasons, that the RFEF could no longer keep him in that slot regardless of the situation and the extended LOA. News from Spain just now says that he has stepped down for personal reasons and will be replaced by Robert Moreno his assistant. As a reminder he had been on personal leave since March 2019.

    Here is the Marca article
    Here is the AS article that has Luis Enrique's letter or resignation.

    I wish him the best of luck on the home front and that whatever issue(s) he has can be resolved satisfactorily.

    Aupa Espanha y La Furia Roja!
