Spain to appoint ex-Barcelona manager Luis Enrique to replace Julen Lopetegui

Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez

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.

The 2010 champions were eliminated from the World Cup by hosts Russian Federation in the round of 16 of the competition after losing 4-3 on penalties following a 1-1 draw.

"Luis Enrique's appointment as coach for the next two years was approved unanimously", Luis Rubiales, president of the Spanish football federation, told reporters.

Spain's interim coach Fernando Hierro has cut his ties with the Spanish Football Federation following the team's disastrous exit from the World Cup last week, the organisation said on Sunday.

Spain only won one game at the World Cup, against Iran, and drew their other two group matches vs. Portugal and Morocco.

The Spanish FA hope to see this, too, and while the 48-year-old won't give one-to-one interviews, his players are thought to be allowed to do so.

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

Luis Enrique has been on a sabbatical since leaving Barcelona in May 2017 and was a reported target of Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea in April.

"Luis Enrique comes with his staff, but he will speak about that topic next week".

Ex-Barcelona coach Luis Enrique has been named Spain's new boss.

Molina, 47, is a former Spanish national goalkeeper and also played for Atletico Madrid and Deportivo de la Coruna. Hierro, who had previously held that role, decided not to return to the post following the World Cup.
