“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 stream to fans in Qatar.
The Spanish manager also admitted that he would have loved to have moved to England during his playing days and fueled rumors that he will end up coaching in the Premier League one day.
Speaking on Twitch, the unorthodox coach made good on his promise to fans to keep streaming as long as Spain are in the World Cup.
In a series of no-holds-barred questions and answers on Thursday night, he talked about everything from channeling Gavi’s energy on the field to whether he puts onion in his Spanish omelette.
Also asked if players should be told not to have sex before games, he said: ‘It’s ridiculous (to ban it). This is something I consider completely normal.
If you’re at an orgy the night before a game, then of course it’s not ideal, but when I’m a club coach, the players are at home the night before a game and it doesn’t worry me at all.

‘If it’s something they do, it’s because they need and want to. But I repeat with common sense! Each with their partner. It’s normal. When I was a player, if I was at home before a game, with my wife, then we did what we had to do.’
Enrique’s star man in his Spain squad – Ferran Torres – is currently dating his daughter and he previously joked that she would ‘chop his head off’ if he failed to start him in a match.
Asked who in the Spanish squad might be the player most similar to Enrique, the manager said: ‘It’s very easy – it’s Mr Ferran Torres – otherwise my daughter will come after me and chop my head off.’
Later in the stream, Enrique was asked which country he wished he had played in and he said: ‘England for sure. 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 that they have there and experience another culture.’
Roman Abramovich tried to take 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 was not about to abandon Spain before the World Cup.
