Spain: Manager Luis Enrique Bans Board Games and PlayStation

Spain: Manager Luis Enrique Bans Board Games and PlayStation

The Champions League Final was a memorable night for a number of reasons but it was the incident which involved Mo Salah and Sergio Ramos which remains the major talking point.

"I never go onto the pitch with the intention of injuring another professional so I have a very clear conscience", he said. I know the English fans will give the receptions players deserve.

Now, Luis Enrique is in charge but he won't have the likes of Andres Iniesta and David Silva to call upon after they both retired from global football.

Sergio Ramos and Real Madrid have got a flawless start to their La Liga campaign as the defending champions have garnered maximum points from three games.

"He is captain as the most capped player", Enrique said on the eve of his first game in charge of Spain.

He said, "I'm not really concerned about that". Aside from their history across the Madrid-Barcelona divide, the centre-half had been criticised for some of his conduct around a hard World Cup for Spain, one that saw Julen Lopetegui sacked on the eve of the tournament for agreeing to the job at the Bernabeu.

"I really like the appointment of Luis Enrique for that reason", he says. "I am not anxious about that in the slightest".

De Gea's erratic form carried over into the new Premier League season as United struggled under Jose Mourinho, and rival Kepa Arrizabalaga admitted he feels "mature" enough to challenge for the Spain No. 1 shirt after making a solid start to life as replacement for Thibaut Courtois at Chelsea. "I have been playing for many years, I have the same drive, the same dreams".

"We have met before as rivals".

Our objective is to take the team to a higher level.

"An example is the situation with mobile phones, for me it seems like a good idea because for half an hour when we are eating it is better to talk with our teammates but I understand those who want to have their phone with them".
