Former Barcelona boss Luiz Enrique has officially been named the new Spanish national team head coach.
The federation president Luis Rubiales fired Lopetegui on the eve of the world cup after he agreed to join Real Madrid as head coach. Hierro took over and led Spain to the round of 16 finish.
Enrique played for La Roja on 62 occasions during his playing days. Hierro, meanwhile, walked away from the federation on Sunday having left his role as the sporting director.
It’s Enrique first job since he left Barcelona in 2017, after spending three fruitful years in Camp Nou. He led the Catalan to three Copa Del Rey, two Laliga, one champions league, one super Copa de Espana, one Uefa Super Cup and one Fifa Club World Cup titles.
He had spells with Barcelona B, Celta Vigo, and Roma.
