Luis Enrique

DBasia.newsAfter the short leadership in Spain national team, Fernando Hierro will give the estafet stick to Luis Enrique. The debut of former AS Roma and Barcelona coach will be presented during the UEFA Nations League.

Under Enrique, he will present the new look of La Furia Roja. Here are the things that would be the signature style of Spain under Enrique:

New Leader

In the 2018 World Cup, the dominant person in the dressing room is Gerard Pique, Jordi Alba, David Silva, Sergio Ramos, and Pepe Reina. Now, it’s only Ramos left. With the Barcelona player Sergio Busquets, both will be the players Enrique relies on to enhance the team’s morality.

Different Playing Style

Hierro made Spain’s style emphasizing the ball circulation and constant ball possession. Due to the high intensity of the team, the attack pattern is easy to read.

Now with Enrique, Ramos and friends will prioritize a quick ball circulation. The team will analyze what they need according to the opponent’s weakness. No wonder, we will see Spain play the ball direct to the front.

4-3-3 Scheme

In Russia, 4-3-3 formation is the formal scheme applied by Spain under Hierro. But practically, the team often changed the formation to 4-2-3-1. Unfortunately, the change didn’t give any significant impact.

Now in many opportunities, Enrique will reapply the 4-3-3 scheme, the same strategy that made him achieved many titles with Barcelona.

New Star

After granting Andres Iniesta as the team’s soul performance, now the team approach will change after Iniesta retired. Real Madrid player, Isco, will take over the duty as the engine. It’s not a secret that Enrique is admiring Isco’s style.

A Threat for De Gea

David De Gea’s performance is no longer consistent. It could be seen since the 2018 World Cup. However, Hierro keeps his trust in him. Now with Enrique, the competition to be the main goalkeeper will be tight. Ahead of the UEFA Nations League, he called three goalkeepers: De Gea, Kepa, and Pau Lopez.
