Coach Luis Enrique, who was linked to Tottenham Hotspur, has been mentioned as a candidate for the next managerial position at Al-Hilal in Saudi Arabia.
Transfer market expert Rudy Galetti said on his SNS on the 9th (Korean time), “Al-Hilal sent an official proposal to manager Enrique after deciding to change the head coach. Negotiations are going smoothly. After losing in the 2022 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL) final, we are pushing for a manager replacement.”
Coach Enrique is a coach who has achieved his own achievements by leading the Barcelona and Spain national soccer teams. Coach Enrique, who took the helm of Barcelona after going through AS Roma and Celta Vigo, won the Spanish La Liga, Copa del Rey, and UEFA Champions League (UCL) in the 2014-15 season and achieved a ‘treble’.
Later, in 2019, he took over the leadership of the Spanish national football team. At Euro 2020, he advanced to the semifinals and continued his positive moves, but was unfortunately eliminated in the round of 16 at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. After that, he left the national team and is currently unemployed.
Recently, he has been linked with English Premier League (EPL) teams. Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea, who sacked manager Antonio Conte and manager Graham Porter, respectively, were the protagonists. The British ‘Telegraph’ said in the middle of last month, “Tottenham will compete with Chelsea for manager Enrique. He is not Tottenham’s top priority, but it is clear that he is in a high order.” 메이저사이트
However, it seems that the possibility of hiring manager Enrige has recently decreased slightly. First of all, in the case of Tottenham, manager Julian Nagelsmann, who was sacked from Bayern Munich, is being considered as the number one priority. Chelsea are likely to take over as manager Mauricio Pochettino, who led Tottenham and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).
In fact, coach Enrique said in March, “I have a desire to take the manager’s position in England, but I will not go to the EPL stage this summer. I received an offer for the national team, but I did not receive any offers from the club team.”
In the midst of this, Al-Hilal of Saudi Arabia showed interest in manager Enrique. Al-Hilal is also monitoring the situation of players such as Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets, who were coached by Enrique at Barcelona.
