As regards the UEFA Nations League, Spain lost 2-1 to France yesterday, as the Les Blues are the Champions of the Nations League. Statistically, the Spanish players dazzled with a high level of confidence, but they held back in their performance in the second-half. In all fairness, Spain have the ability and capability to go far in the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Aside from that, there are some reasons why Barcelona should resign Luis Enrique in the 2022-2023 season, as they are planning to sack Ronald Koeman this campaign. Of course, the Spanish gaffer lost against France yesternight, but he has shown enough reasons why Joan Laporta should trust and resign him, because he has the qualities to turn Barcelona awful situation around.
Having seen Spain's starting XI against Italy and France, it's obvious that the coach can keep performing flawlessly with the club's academy products. As a result, he can continue to dazzle excellently even when players like Sergio Agüero, Ousmane Dembélé and Ansu Fati are injured. Actually, the Dutch manager claimed he couldn't produce results, because there's no available goal-scorer or natural attacker.
However, Luis Enrique's case is very different as he can use the likes of Yusuf Demir and other youngsters in the team to face Real Madrid in El-Clasico. The Roberto Mancini's men are very dangerous as a team, having seen their performances in international games so far, but the Spaniard gaffer ended their unbeaten streak as he used his second starting XI to face them.
In all honesty, Barcelona should resign the manager next season, because they can boldly challenge for the LaLiga title, with the likes of Pedri González, Ansu Fati, Pablo Gavi, Yusuf Demir and the rest. It's amazing to see Enrique playing 17-year-old Gavi against Italy and France, as he showed he can handle and bring out the best in the young players at Camp Nou.
Some Spain's players who didn't play in the UEFA Nations League; Thiago Alcantara, Alvaro Morata, David De Gea, Pedri González, Dani Olmo, Ansu Fati, Jordi Alba and Adama Traoré. Still, he was able to end Italy's unbeaten run and almost won against the Les Blues yesternight. Obviously, he's capable of taking Barcelona to the next level.
Without being sentimental, Luis Enrique is a tactical genius and he possesses the qualities Joan Laporta is looking for in a manager. Of course, the Spanish boss didn't usually spend enough time with the players, but he still managed to set them up and organized them to deliver in any international games. That's another reason why the Bluagranas don't need to panic, when their players are injured with Luis as the coach.
Apparently, Italy are very balanced and composed in attack and defense. Meanwhile, Luis Enrique used Alonso and Koke to shut down their wing sides, as Pablo Gavi gave Jorginho a hard time in the midfield. In addition, France set up their starting XI with only N'Golo Kante missing in the squad, whilst the Spanish coach used his team B to play against them.
Simply put, Barcelona should resign Luis Enrique next season as they are planning to sack Ronald Koeman. Frankly, the Spanish manager lost against France yesterday, but his tactics and formations in the UEFA Nations League revealed that, he's able and capable of taking the Bluagranas to the next level, particularly with the likes of Gavi, Fati and Pedri in the squad.
