​Spain boss Moreno would handover job to Enrique

Spain manager Robert Moreno will "step aside" if Luis Enrique ever wants to return to the job, reports BBC Sport.

Enrique resigned in June for personal reasons and last week announced that his nine-year-old daughter, Xana, had died from bone cancer.

The 49-year-old was in charge of Spain for 11 months before he was replaced by his assistant.

"If Luis wants to return one day I would be delighted to step aside and work with him," said Moreno.

"I consider Luis a friend and friendship comes ahead of everything."

Moreno replaced Enrique on a temporary basis for Spain's last three matches and was later named his permanent successor.
