Luis Enrique is indeed one of the greatest managers of all time. During his playing career, he was an attacking midfielder who played for both Real Madrid and Barcelona.

He was also a member of the Spanish national team, winning two European Championships and one World Cup. As a player, Luis achieved great success at both club and international level.

At club level, he won nine major trophies with Real Madrid and Barcelona, including two La Liga titles with each club. He also won the Copa del Rey twice with Barcelona and the UEFA Super Cup once with Real Madrid.

At international level, he won two European Championships (in 2008 and 2012) and one World Cup (in 2010). At the start of his managerial career, Luis Enrique achieved great success with Barcelona.

In his first season in charge (2014-15), Enrique led Barca to a treble of La Liga, Copa del Rey and Champions League titles. In this process, he became only the second manager in history to do so after Pep Guardiola in 2009-10.

In total, he won nine major trophies during his three-year spell at Barcelona – including two more La Liga titles (2015-16 & 2016-17). In 2018-19, Luis Enrique returned to management with Spain’s national team – replacing Julen Lopetegui after their poor start to the 2018 World Cup qualifiers.

Since then, he has led Spain to qualification for Euro 2020 as well as reaching the final of UEFA Nations League in 2019. In 2020-21, the Spanish legend guided Spain to their first major trophy since 2012. They won Euro 2020 after beating Germany 1–0 in the final.

This was Spain’s sixth major trophy under his management. Achieving this feat, he became one of only four managers in history to win six or more major trophies with a single national team.
