The former Barcelona boss’ appointment followed the La Roja’s hugely disappointing World Cup campaign where they were edged out in the second round by the host, Russia.

Recall that on the eve of the World Cup, Julen Lopetegui was sacked by Spanish Football Federation president Luis Rubiales for taking the Real Madrid job without informing his employers.

Then came Fernando Hierro as interim boss for the tournament.

48-year-old Enrique won two La Liga titles, a Champions League and Copa del Rey with the Catalan side before stepping down last year.

As a player he won 62 caps for the Spanish national side, played at three World Cups as well as winning Olympic gold in 1992.
