Barca’s Luis Enrique interested in Spain job


What a difference a year makes. About 12 months ago, Barcelona manager Luis Enrique was fending off questions about his job safety.

Now he’s fending off questions about his next job.

Quizzed about his interest in the Spain job once Vicente Del Bosque retires after Euro 2016, Enrique gave quite a committal (so-to-speak).

From the BBC:

Asked if he wanted to replace the 2010 World Cup winner, Enrique said: “Yes, I would like that a lot.”

What do you think? Is the 45-year-old boss the right kind of man for the head Spanish job?

Certainly he has the ego-handling part down after last year’s reported “struggles” with Lionel Messi. They only went on to win Europe. And he’s managed a group of underdogs to success with Celta Vigo as well.

Spain could do much, much worse.
