Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) president Luis Rubiales insisted at the time that "the doors of the federation and the national team will remain open to him".

The former Barcelona boss had left the role in June after 11 months in charge due to personal reasons.

Spain swatted aside Romania 5-0 at the Wanda Metropolitano on Monday to confirm their participation in next year's tournament, but eyebrows were raised when Moreno cancelled his post-match press conference following the match.

"Luis Enrique stepped down for the worst possible thing that can happen in a family".

Meanwhile, Midfielder Saul Niguez added: "We don't know anything, I can't speculate".

"Robert Moreno calls me and tells me that he would like me to talk to Luis Enrique and if he wants to continue, to commit to you". He has received better offers, for sure. "Robert's work is shown on the pitch and we're happy with it".

Speaking on Monday, Gerard said he was with the coach "to the end", unfortunately for his namesake, it seems the RFEF may not feel the same way.

Rubiales confirmed that the 49-year-old Luis Enrique, the former Barcelona coach, has a contract until after the Qatar 2022 World Cup, and will stay on regardless of the team's performance at Euro 2020.

Moreno is said to have been left feeling "used and betrayed", but Rubiales explained that he could have no qualms about the re-appointment of Enrique, stating that the recruitment process has been nothing but transparent. He is delighted to return, and thanked us for sticking to our word.

Moreno, an global relations graduate who had no playing career, was thrust into the biggest job in Spanish football in unusual circumstances following Luis Enrique's resignation in June. "He has always been the leader of our project, and has contract until World Cup in Qatar".
