Luis Enrique has resigned as the head coach of the Spanish men's national team, and will be replaced by his long-time assistant
@LuisRubiales: "Luis Enrique nos ha comunicado que no va a seguir como seleccionador. Tengo que darle las gracias. Se ha portado con la RFEF de manera '10'. No tenemos el más mínimo reproche. Hemos estado unidos con él. Siempre tendrá las puertas de la RFEF abiertas" pic.twitter.com/iTl0HGmlkO— RFEF (@rfef) June 19, 2019
"All my thanks to those responsible for the RFEF for the trust and understanding that they have shown. Special thanks to all the people who are part of the staff, and to the players for their professionalism – without forgetting the media for your discretion and respect for the situation."

"As the reasons preventing me from carrying out my duties as national team coach since March continue today, I've decided to step down... I'd like to thank the staff and players for their professionalism. Not forgetting the media for your discretion and respect." pic.twitter.com/H5EIBoq9AP
Spain don't play again until September, when they have back to back qualifying matches against Romania and the Faroe Islands, a relatively benign start to Moreno's reign as permanent manager.
