Fernando Hierro leaves Spain role after failing to make quarter-finals

Spain knocked out of World Cup 2018

It didn't go well with Spain losing on penalties to Russian Federation in the second round and Hierro quit.

"The last Spanish coach declined to return to his previous position as sports director of the RFEF to seek new horizons and undertake new professional challenges".

As Barcelona coach Luis Enrique worked with Spain internationals Jordi Alba, Sergio Busquets and Gerard Pique, as well as Andres Iniesta who has already announced his retirement from worldwide football.

Before that, Spain were humiliated at the hands of the Netherlands in 2014 and beaten by Italy at Euro 2016 - their 2008-2012 winning streak but a distant memory.

Luis Enrique replaces Julen Lopetegui who was controversially sacked on the eve of the World Cup.

Of the starting XI against Russian Federation, only Marco Asensio will be under 30 when the next World Cup comes around.

If you don't know, the fish pedicure is just like it sounds. "I am not convinced at all that the fishes caused the problem", Dr. This is the first reported case of a fish pedicure causing the toenails to fall off, so it's not necessarily common .

Luis Enrique also enjoyed a successful playing career, competing for both Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Given that he spent five years with Real Madrid as a player, Luis Enrique doesn't hold much affinity with Los Blancos and their fans.

UPDATE: The Spanish FA have since confirmed Enrique as the new manager of the national team.

The 48-year-old has been out of work since leaving Barcelona last summer and had been linked with Arsenal when Arsene Wenger stepped down at the end of the season.

Belgium gaffer Roberto Martinez was tipped to manage his country having guided the Red Devils to the World Cup semi-finals.

The former Spain worldwide has also turned down the option to return to his previous role of sports director.
