Luis Enrique: “The future does not exist”


The Spanish coach, who praised the form of his players in “the best training week”, leaves his continuity in the air less than two months before the World Cup

Luis Enrique does not think about the future. Less than two months before the start of the World Cup in Qatar, the Spanish coach is letting his continuity hang in the air, fueling rumors of the end of his time at the helm of La Roja and his possible successors in office. «A lot of conditionals, the future doesn’t exist. There will be no news because we don’t want that, I’m just worried about tomorrow’s game,” said the Asturian coach.

Lucho is completely faithful to the philosophy of ‘carpe diem’, he is only interested in the present, at least according to his own words. “I trust a lot of the sensations, of what I see training. This was the best week of training in terms of intensity and quality in my entire career as a coach. I see you all very prepared, maybe it will happen in all the selections because of the appointment that appears behind the curtains. If I’m always happy, this week even more”, he said jubilantly about the last preparation sessions.

“With everyone, even the newbies, the pace of training was brutal. We were able to work and remember things we had worked on before. I have seen them exceptionally and with the intensity necessary to compete,” he emphasized about his good feelings.

“To play again here in La Romareda, in a football city that has always been, is special. We are going to try to make our fans enjoy it. Zaragoza brings me good memories and that I always came as a visitor and here the crowd squeezes. The stadium breathes football history. Hopefully Zaragoza will regain the first category with my Sporting,” said Lucho on the scene of the match against Switzerland, to which the team returns 19 years later.

While he did not assure anything concrete about the possible eleven for the game against Switzerland, the coach hinted at the possibility of deploying an attacking trident made up of Ferran Torres, Morata and Sarabia. “In football, I have the rule first to tell the players who they play, but don’t be fooled,” he replied when asked about that combination for the offensive plot.

The coach praised the innovative system for passing orders during training to players tested this week, a tool he would even take to games if possible. “We tested with up to fourteen players. I loved it and will continue to use it. The only handicap is for the player because of the tension of the game, but as a coach I like it. Only if they would tell me things to the pivot to say, it would be worth it,” he explained in this regard.

Finally, and although it is not directly related to his management, Luis Enrique assessed, albeit very succinctly, the scandal unleashed in the Spanish women’s team following the sacking of up to fifteen internationals due to their disagreements with the coach’s management , Jorge Vilda. “This is a totally abnormal situation, with difficult management, but I have no doubt that the Federation will manage it in the best possible way,” he said.
