Enrique to be offered new Spain contract on one condition

Luis Enrique is set to be rewarded with a new contract by the Royal Spanish Football Federation after he impressed during the Euro 2020 tournament with his leadership. 

He took Spain to the semi-finals of the tournament before they were beaten by Italy on penalties despite their poor build-up due to a positive coronavirus test in the camp.

Just a handful of folks in Spain expected the team to reach the advanced stages of the competition and they were nearly vindicated with the slow start of Enrique’s side to the competition. However, they progressed to the last 4 and were denied a place in the final on penalties in a game they dominated.

Therefore, the Spanish boss deserves some accolades and a report by Diario AS suggests that he is set to be rewarded with a new contract. The report adds that the RFEF will offer him a new deal once they secure qualification to the 2022 World Cup.

Spain currently lead their group in the qualifying round but Sweden are just 1 point behind with a game in hand.

Regardless, La Roja are almost sure of at least a place in the playoff stages which is for the team that finishes second. They currently lead third-placed Greece with 5 points but have also played a game more than them.

If Enrique is handed the new contract, it will keep him in charge until the end of Euro 2024 at least as his current deal will run out at the end of 2022.
