“I don’t mind players having sex the night before games, but I draw the line at orgies,” Spain coach Luis Enrique said in his latest streaming for Qatar fans.
The Spanish manager also admitted that he would have liked to move to England in his playing time to fuel rumors that he might one day end up coaching in the Premier League.
Speaking on Twitch, the unconventional coach fulfilled his promise to fans to keep streaming as long as Spain takes part in the World Cup.
In an endless series of questions and answers on Thursday night, he talked about everything from channeling Gavi’s energy on the pitch to whether he puts onion in his Spanish omelette.
When also asked if players should be told not to have sex before matches, he said, “It’s ridiculous (to ban it). It’s something I think is completely normal.
Of course if you’re at an orgy the night before a game it’s not ideal, but if I’m a club coach the players are home the night before a game and that’s not something I’m worried about.
Spain boss Luis Enrique has revealed he is happy his players are having sex before a match while at the World Cup in Qatar.

“If it’s something they do, it’s because they have to and want to. But I repeat with common sense! Each with their partner. It’s normal. When I was a player when I was home for a game, with my wife, we did what we had to do.’
Enrique’s star player in his Spain squad – Ferran Torres – is currently dating his daughter and he previously joked that she would ‘cut his head off’ if he didn’t start him in a game.
When asked who in Spain’s squad is the player most like Enrique, the manager said: “That’s very easy – it’s Mr Ferran Torres – otherwise my daughter will come after me and cut my head off.”
Later in the stream, Enrique was asked which country he would have liked to play in, he said: ‘England absolutely. The Italian league was very strong in my time, but playing in England would have helped me with my level of English and I would have been able to experience the more physical, more intense football they have there, and experience a different culture.”
Roman Abramovich tried to bring Luis Enrique to Chelsea when he owned the club. And last season he was at the top of Manchester United’s wish list until it became clear that he would not abandon Spain before the World Cup.
