European News By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 19/11/2019

Spain has named a new manager for the upcoming Euro 2020 tournament in the coming summer, according to the report in Marca.

Luis Enrique has been re-installed as the new manager for Spain after he resigned from the post in March due to personal reasons following the sickness and death of his daughter.

His assistant Robert Moreno took charge of the team on an interim basis, he was in charge of some the La Furia Roja games before his appointment was made permanent in June, he guided La Roja to Euro 2020 qualification with six wins and two draws in his eight matches in charge.

"I think my options to continue at 10 out of 10," Moreno said on Sunday.

"I consider Luis a friend and his friendship comes in front of everything," he had said in November.

"If he wants to return one day, I will be delighted to step aside and work with him."

Spain has changed their coach for the sixth time since 2016 when Vicente del Bosque left the role after Euro 2016.

Julen Lopetegui took over but was replaced by Fernando Hierro on the eve of the 2018 World Cup after taking the Real Madrid job.

Hierro didn't continue in charge after Spain was knocked out by the hosts in Russia and Luis Enrique was appointed before leaving in March.
