Rarely, a media conference was expected with so much excitement as that of Luis Enrique in his official (Re)presentation as a Spanish national coach. He would tell the whole truth? He would be betrayed, which is why he urged his good friend Robert Moreno from the office? Yes, he is grabbed from. And how. But after the series.
Due to the serious illness of his nine-year-old daughter, Luis Enrique resigned in June from his Post at the end of August, the small Xana died on bone cancer. On the former Barça Coach was now followed by his assistant, Robert Moreno, it was the most obvious solution. For years the two friends worked together, hardly knew Luis Enrique is better than Moreno is a continuation of the idea of the game was ensured. In his presentation, Moreno gave a grateful and humble – and said a sentence that flies him to the ears: "If Lucho ever want to return, I would immediately take a step to the side."
he is Now back, Luis Enrique. And Moreno? It was more than just a step to the side. He had to.
in tears, Moreno said goodbye to the Team. What had happened, he would not say. His comment: "Lucho to tell it if he wants." And Yes, Luis Enrique seems to want to. "Robert is disloyal, I had behaved never. And I would also like to have any with these characteristics in my Staff." So, the tone was set. And the 49-Year-old moved into the narrative form: "We distanced ourselves on the 12. September. It was the only day that we had contact. He called me, we met at me, and he said that he wants the Team to the European Championships to coach and he would be then, if I wanted to because, again, my assistant." So, it was after Luis Enrique's Version, but nothing with the immediate step to the side: "It is not a surprise to me, as the contact between us was suddenly flattened."
Not proud of the outcome of the story
He understood Moreno, because: "He is ambitious, has worked hard. You have to recognize." But: "For me this is disloyal. Disproportionate Ambition is not a virtue, but a big weakness." So Enrique was not for Luis clear: "I want him in my Staff. And I really wanted to work again, felt strong enough." He stresses, however, that he had never offered, but the Union bosses stood with a phone call at the end of October to follow through and whether he feels ready to return: "I'm very motivated, but also anything other than proud of how it all had to end."
He had learned from history, but also a lot of things, says the Re-national coach: "in Such situations, help you get to know people better. So you can see who is a true friend and who is not." It's values were very important: "And I look forward to speaking again soon with my players and teach them these values."
