Spain: Former coach Moreno hits back after being named 'disloyal' by Luis Enrique

Spain, Barcelona
November 28, 2019 at 21:02 GMT +00:00 · Published

Former Spain national team interim coach Robert Moreno said he was surprised to hear Luis Enrique's remarks about him. Moreno was speaking at a news conference in Barcelona on Thursday.

"I don't know why Luis Enrique doesn't want to count on me. I don't know and it isn't clear after what he said yesterday. I think that he said to me a couple of things that are really bad and I don't deserve, that in all the time that I've been working with him I showed that I'm not like that," said Moreno.

On Wednesday, Enrique accused Moreno of being disloyal and overly ambitious for wanting to continue leading the national team through Euro 2020. He later announced that Moreno was no longer part of his coaching staff.

Moreno was appointed interim national team manager in March, when Enrique quit his job to assist his ill daughter. He was sacked last Tuesday, after Spain qualified for Euro 2020 beating Romania 5-0.
