Mundial Qatar: 3 possible replacements for coach Luis Enrique for Spain!

The opening match of the last 16 of Spain failed after against Morocco. La Roja’s struggle turned out to be only until the start of the round of 16 match for the Qatar 2022 World Cup. During the match Spain and Morocco played a goalless draw, but in a penalty shootout the Spanish national team lost badly with the score given by the Moroccan national team, namely 0-3. La Roja’s failure seemed to be a hard slap for Luis Enrique and his team. From the start of the game Enrique was warned because I play Spain like “Barcelona”. The reason is, the coach prioritizes possession of the ball without the power to pounce in front of the players.

Finally, Spain dominates 77% of Morocco’s possession and has made 1,019 passes. But they have to go home with failure from the round of 16 of the 2022 world cup sooner.

Spain’s failure was a bad note for Enrique who was repeatedly warned, but the coach remained adamant with his playing style and tactics. The news of the change of coach for Spain was sticking out.

There are three names of coaches who are expected to replace Enrique for Spain, as follows:

Argentina coach: Mauricio Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino is a coach from Argentina who has recently been linked with filling the position as coach. Pochettino is said to be one of the best coaches and is currently still not filled by any club.

PSG sacked Pochettino at the end of last year, but that doesn’t mean his performance isn’t good. Pochettino’s career history as a coach is actually quite good. If he coached Spain, maybe he would fit in because there is no language barrier and his playing style is only focused on possession.

Zidane and Pochetinho

Former Real Madrid coach: Zinedine Zidane
Zinedine Zidane is the second coach candidate, he is not from Spain but his quality as a coach is no longer in doubt. Zinedine Zidane left Real Madrid a few years ago. Until now, Zidane has not filled a position as a coach at any club.

Zinedine Zidane is one of the best coaches, there is no need to doubt his quality in coaching a team, especially since the team wants to win trophies. Zidane’s tactics are also good for the La Roja national team. Spain needs a new style of play that is not boring.

Zidane was touted as Didier Deschamps’ successor in France, but did not rule out the possibility that if Spain moved faster, Zinedine Zidane could be interested in coaching them.

Former Belgium coach: Roberto Martinez

Roberto Martines is one of the names of coaches who are often associated with Spain. Even though he recently resigned as coach of Belgium. Roberto Martines failed to train Belgium to win a trophy for 6 years.

Even though Martinez’s candidacy to become the coach of the Spanish National Team is a very surprising thing, it does not rule out that Martines also has a playing style that suits La Roja. Martines’ philosophy is also very interesting for the Spanish national team, which still maintains a monotonous playing style.

Martines when coaching Belgium was called the golden generation, even though in the end he was unable to make Belgium present a single trophy in various matches.
