The Spanish Football Federation announced on Tuesday morning that the national team manager, Luis Enrique, would not be able to attend the Euro 2020 qualifier against Malta. Spanish captain Sergio Ramos was quick to share his feelings on social media with the boss.

A win for Luis Enrique

The statement cited 'family reasons' and that the assistant coach, Robert Moreno, would take charge for the evening. A few minutes after the post, Ramos sent his own support, and that of the Spain squad, via his official account:

"Gaffer, we are very sorry to hear the news. We hope that everything goes as well as possible. You know that the team is with you to the end and today will strive to get a good victory. Family is sacred. We will win for you all. Stay strong. A big hug."

Spain kick-off against Malta at 20:45 CET.
