Luis Enrique replaced as Spain coach after World Cup exit

AP – Luis Enrique was replaced by Luis de la Fuente as Spain’s coach yesterday, two days after the national team was eliminated in the round of 16 at the World Cup.

Spain lost to Morocco 3-0 in a penalty shootout after a scoreless draw in regular and extra time.

The Spanish football federation thanked Luis Enrique, but said it was time to “start a new project” to keep the growth achieved by the coach in recent years. It said the change was made after a recommendation by its sporting officials.
