“I’m happy with what I’ve seen. I enjoyed a high level match with two strong teams trying to play good football, it was a show for the fans. I want to congratulate Italy, I hope that in the final he can try to win this European championship. I will cheer for the Azzurri ». These are the words of Luis Enrique, the coach of Spain, who in this European tale is the loser, but who appears to be anything but. He looks like a great man, a football lord and more.
He went to congratulate with Mancini after Italy’s victory on penalties, he went to console his players and received compliments from the Azzurri.
“I have no regrets,” he said. One of the best matches of these European Championships. Morata on the bench at the beginning? I saw Chiellini and Bonucci with Lukaku against Belgium and I thought maybe it would be better to play it without forwards. It was an important move for us, we were able to overcome the blue pressing ».
It was a move that harnessed Italy even if it was not decisive, but which demonstrates the great intelligence of a coach who was a great player and who lives football with the right distance. To give him this distance were the events of a life, above all death of his daughter at just 9 years old Xana, in 2019 for bone cancer. “You will be the guiding star of our family and we will remember you every day. I hope we will meet again in the future, “he said then.

Luis Enrique he has a smile that is never complete, but he smiles. He was able to joke with Federico Chiesa during extra time. It is a demonstration of the fact that football can be lived with tranquility, elegance, humanity and refinement. «It is not a sad evening, we are disappointed but in football you have to know how to win and lose. We cannot be desperate, but we must congratulate our opponents ». The summary of sportsmanship is in the words of the former Roma coach and the network is with him at the hashtag #luisenrique.
