Luis Enrique is surprisingly still in contention to become Manchester United’s next manager.
You would think that with a World Cup later this year, which will involve Spain, we would now know if Enrique was ready to part ways with international football to return to the club scene.
Enrique was successful during his time at Barcelona, winning two La Liga titles and a Champions League, but I guess he could be convinced if he doesn’t think Spain has a chance of going all the way. in Qatar.
‘Don’t rule out the chances of Spain boss Luis Enrique becoming Manchester United’s next manager’ writes Mike Keegan of the Daily Mail.
Apparently insiders say the 51-year-old has many admirers at Old Trafford, partly because United wouldn’t need to pay top dollar to steer him away from the national team.
The report goes on to reject claims that Enrique is just an underdog, behind Erik ten Hag and Mauricio Pochettino, but he is seen as a real contender.
It would spell danger for David de Gea, who was omitted from Spain’s recent squad.
It only reinforces the belief that United are still unsure which direction they want to go – after interviewing Ten Hag on Monday.
You would think they would have a clear favorite by now.
