Spain manager Roberto Moreno given full backing for Euro 2020… but not beyond next summer’s tournament
- Roberto Moreno was Luis Enrique’s assistant with the Spain national team
- He took over following Enrique’s resignation in June due to personal reasons
- Moreno has guided Spain to Euro 2020, finishing top of their qualifying group
Moreno, who was formerly assistant manager, took charge of the national team when Luis Enrique stepped down in June due to his daughter being seriously ill – she tragically passed away in August.
Moreno has guided the Spanish – who won the 2010 World Cup and the Euros in 2008 and 2012 – to Euro 2020 with ease, yet Rubiales confirmed that no plans are set beyond next summer.

Speaking to Spanish outlet Marca, Rubiales said: ‘When qualification is completed next week, we will reflect on the situation.
‘We are very happy with Robert, and that has not changed.’
‘Once the tournament is completed we will look again at the matter.’
Spain sealed their qualification for next summer’s tournament – which will be held across Europe – with a draw in Sweden last month, and have an unassailable lead at the top of Group F.
Given their qualification, Moreno fielded a much-changed starting XI for their 7-0 thrashing of Malta last Friday – they conclude their campaign against Romania on Monday.
