Spain manager Luis Enrique is trying to do anything he can to keep his squad focused and one of the things he has told his players is that there will be no more board games and PlayStation.
The former Barcelona manager will make his first appearance on Saturday in a game against England at Wembley. The manager has told his players that there will be no more Ludo and PlayStation.
The strategy board game is said to have been one of the things the squad played during the World Cup. Spain’s team is also said to have played PlayStation. The former Barcelona manager has announced the bans to keep the players focused.
Spain’s new manager has also introduced a number of rules for his team. Players have been told to attend all team meals and not to bring smartphones when they are going to eat. The manager has also moved up dinner by 30 minutes and brought in more vegetables and fruits to the foods.
Luis Enrique announced his decision to leave as Barcelona manager last year. In early July, he was named Spain’s new head coach after Fernando Hierro stepped down. Hierro was in temporary charge after Spain fired Julen Lopetegui right before the 2018 World Cup.
Spain didn’t have its best performances during the group stage of the 2018 World Cup. The team did win the group by goal difference but it was surprised in the round of 16 by Russia. The hosts took Spain all the way to penalty shootout and won.
Luis Enrique now has the task to get Spain back on top. The team has had plenty of success in the last ten years, winning the 2008 Euro, 2012 Euro and 2010 World Cup. Spain has disappointed in the last two World Cups, losing in the group stage and the round of 16.
