Louis Enrique thinks Robert Moreno quit because of him
Louis Enrique officially comes back to Spain, as the manager of the Spanish National team. He resigned from this post in June 2019, due to his daughter’s (Xana) medical emergency. Unfortunately, Xana passed away due to bone cancer in August.
Louis Enrique met the press and shares his opinion.
Louis Enrique feeling he comes back home
” I feel like I come back home. It’s a special day for me and my family. I am a person who usually steers clear of controversy but today I feel obliged to give an explanation because this is about someone I worked with for many years.”
Louis Enrique thinks Moreno loses his job because of him
“I’m the only reason why he (Moreno) is not in my staff. The fall-out comes from a meeting and I understood that he wanted to take charge of the team in the Euros and then go back to being my No 2 afterwards.
” And, in that moment, I try to put myself in the other person’s shoes. I understand that he wanted to take the opportunity of his life. I understand that he is ambitious and that’s a quality to admire but, for me, that’s also disloyal and for me, that is a defect.
” I understand his position but I don’t share it and I would not have done that. I said I wanted to come back. I then called every member of my staff asking for their opinion.”
