Luis Enrique has officially returned as Spain boss five months after stepping down for personal reasons.

Robert Moreno will not be available with him who stepped up in Enrique's absence. Robert Moreno took over in June after Enrique's daughter, Xana, was taken ill having been diagnosed with cancer. Xana passed away in August.

Having led his country unbeaten through eight matches in charge, former Barcelona assistant Moreno departs the national team entirely after being removed as head coach.

“Everyone knew that if Luis Enrique wanted to come back he had the doors open,” Spanish FA chief Luis Rubiales said on Tuesday.

Rubiales further stated,  “Luis Enrique will continue to the Qatar World Cup in 2022.”

Enrique was appointed national team boss following Spain's exit from the 2018 World Cup in the last 16.
