Spain are set to re-appoint Luis Enrique as their manager heading into Euro 2020, with current coach Robert Moreno bidding farewell to his players following Monday's win over Romania.
Enrique left his post in June as his nine-year-old daughter Xana was fighting bone cancer. As a result, his long-term assistant Moreno was appointed and was handed a contract which was due to run until after the European Championships.
The 42-year-old claimed on the day of his appointment that due to the circumstances, he would happily give up his position if the former manager came back, saying: "If he wants to return one day, I will be delighted to step aside and work with him."
And following Spain's impressive 5-0 win over Romania on Monday, the manager opted not to speak to the media. Instead, Marca have reported that he tearfully informed the players that he will no longer lead the team, saying an emotional farewell.
The report further goes on to mention that the players were left shocked and saddened, with Moreno going on to thank them before wishing them well for the European Championships.
The RFEF are due to hold a press conference at 11:30 on Tuesday, with former Barcelona boss Enrique expected to be announced as the manager once again.
This comes following a report from AS that Spanish FA president Luis Rubiales offered Enrique the chance to replace Moreno, as he looks to maintain his commitment to the 49-year-old.
La Roja guaranteed themselves a top seeding for this summer's European Championships, after they produced a convincing display to overcome Romania. The match prior, the team was equally impressive to ease past Malta 7-0.
If Enrique takes over from Moreno, this will be Spain's fifth managerial change since June 2018, when Julen Lopetegui left his post just prior to the World Cup in order to join Real Madrid.
