Gerard Pique and Luis Enrique worked together at one time at Barcelona.
The duo then had a brief second spell at Spain’s national camp. However, Enrique had to leave early due to some personal commitments of grave seriousness. He is now back for a new chapter in his life and Pique could not be more excited.
“I don’t know what happened, I haven’t spoken with my Barca’s team-mates because they played Monday against Romania,” said Pique. “All that I know is what I’ve read in the media and I suppose we’ll know more in a few days.
“All I can say is that I’m really excited that Luis Enrique is back as Spain coach. All that’s gone on, I suspect only a few will know.”
A lot has been made of the appointment of Luis Enrique. It is a great news for the world of football that a man who suffered such unwarranted heart break by losing his 9 year old daughter to a terminal illness has now found a purpose to live again.
We here at SS, would love nothing more than to see Enrique succeed and be happy for him and his daughter and his family.
