Spain national team boss Luis Enrique on Sunday gave an overview of his squad members most likely to enjoy a post-playing career on the touchline.
Enrique, of course, has spent the week so far, and the past three years in total, overseeing the development of the latest generation of Spanish football talent.
In turn, the 52-year-old has by this stage gained a solid understanding of which members of La Roja’s setup are highly tactically inclined, and also which ones are not.
Speaking to the media on Sunday, the tactician therefore opened up on who exactly he thinks is best suited to extend his days in the footballing sphere beyond the point of hanging up his boots, to take on a role in the direction.
After being drawn so much in a press conference ahead of Spain’s World Cup opener against Costa Rica on Wednesday, Enrique pointed to a pair of Barcelona stars as being the best placed for all that.
The former should come as no surprise, in the form of midfield maestro Sergio Busquets.
The second name put forward by the boss of Spain, however, proved to be more remarkable, that of defender Eric Garcia.
Having evolved at Barcelona’s famed La Masia academy before working for three years under Pep Guardiola in Manchester, the stopper, at just 21, already seems to be attracting attention with his technical and tactical understanding of the game.
