New coach Luis Enrique wants unpredictable Spain in Nations League

Jordi Alba Spain 2018

"I don't know what's going to happen in the future but that's a position I haven't had any doubts about", the Spain coach said. "I never wanted to hurt a colleague on the pitch, of course, so my conscience is really clear about what I did that night", Ramos said in pre-match press conference.

Isco was reportedly unhappy with criticism of his World Cup performances by the journalist in question, Spain having exited to hosts Russian Federation in the round of 16.

Ramos' tussle with Salah had resulted in an injury to the Egyptian. In early July, he was named Spain's new head coach after Fernando Hierro stepped down. Aside from their history across the Madrid-Barcelona divide, the centre-half had been criticised for some of his conduct around a hard World Cup for Spain, one that saw Julen Lopetegui sacked on the eve of the tournament for agreeing to the job at the Bernabeu.

The Real Madrid defender may have been a regular adversary of Luis Enrique during the coach's time in charge at Camp Nou, but that is not clouding the 48-year-old's opinion of the centre-back.

The hosts took Spain all the way to penalty shootout and won.

"I really like the appointment of Luis Enrique for that reason", he says.

"The fact we have been a reference over the past decade means that everyone knows our national team", he added.

"I'm delighted to have him and I hope he stays with us for many years and he keeps pushing his team-mates - on and off the pitch - to victory".

Enrique, too, gave a glowing report on the man he has decided will continue with the captain's armband under his tenure.

The former Barcelona manager will make his first appearance on Saturday in a game against England at Wembley.

"He is a great leader in any situation, a person who drags in and out". We want to absorb Enrique's knowledge."It is a new coach which always demands more attention".
