Roberto Moreno Has A “Clear Conscience” After Spain Exit

Former Spain coach, Robert Moreno, has insisted that his conscience is clear following the redeployment of Luis Enrique as Spain head coach.

Moreno, however, acknowledged the fact that he had "a bittersweet feeling" that his former boss, Enrique, was back to his job following his permitted leave.

Moreno, who was the assistant coach of Spain, stepped into the shoes of Enrique earlier this year when the latter resigned after his young daughter, Xana, battled bone cancer before she died in August.

He was supposed to return to his role as an assistant coach after Enrique's return but reports suggest that the two tacticians have fallen out. Moreno recently announced in a statement issued to the press that he would not assess his final days as Spain's head coach to avoid "a spiral of reproaches and justifications for each of the parties."

But the 42-year-old went on to thank Enrique, his staff, the RFEF and the media, while also apologising for not addressing reporters after his final match in charge.

"I have a clear conscience. It is impossible to please everyone, but I sincerely tell you that I respect all and all opinions.

"I have always maintained that I am a man of my word and would not be an obstacle in the event that Luis Enrique decided to return.

"I have done so even though it has meant my departure. I wish him well because his joys will be ours," Moreno stated.
