"It is a very special day for me and my family, because I go back home, to the Selection and to finish a project that initiated in his moment", began, adding that "I know that the possible attention mediática can be in what sucedió in the last months. I see me forced to give a lot of more explanations of which had liked me. I am person that escapes of controversies, any one that have followed my path knows it, but see me forced because it is a controversy that is starred by a person that worked with me during a lot of years. I put me in the place of the another also".

Luis Enrique left clear that the decision that Robert was not in the staff is his and explained the moment in which the relation between both gave a radical twist. "The only responsible that Robert Moreno was not in my staff am I, neither Rubiales neither Molina neither the Federation", said, leaving clear that "the desencuentro with Moreno comes on 12 September. It is the only day that have contact with him".

The Asturian desveló the content of the meeting and went especially last with his ex mate. "It calls me, have a meeting in my house and perceive that it wants to do the Eurocopa​, and that afterwards, if I want to, will go back to be my second. It saw it come by the fault of events of the last weeks. I go to put me in the another point of view. I understand that it do him illusion, that is the opportunity of his life, has worked a lot and is ambitious, that is a quality to value, but for me is disloyal, I would not do it and do not want to anybody with these characteristics in my staff. The immoderate ambition is not a virtue, but a big defect", sentenced.

"In the professional did not have doubt. In the personal believed a thing that was not. I am not the good of the film, the worst neither"

The new seleccionador affirmed that it denied to accept the proposal of Robert and communicated him that they would not go back to work together. "What answer him is that I do not want it in my staff and that am strong. That I want to go back to work. I do not know when I will do it, but I say him that have win, that go to go back to the football. It finish this meeting of cordial way and call to the members of my staff. It wanted to that they knew which was my opinion and the one of the another part. Neither I want that tergiversen my words", explained.

Luis Enrique also wanted to clear that never it offered to go back to the bench of 'The Red', simply limited to accept the proposal of the Federation. "I have not offered me never to the Federation, have not called to anybody and never have left that third call in my name to offer me. In his moment had to leave the selection by the circumstances that know and kept me to the margin. This changes to finals of October, when Rubiales and Molina call me and have a pleasant meeting. Always I have received samples of affection and loyalty by part of the president and of Molina. The first that said them is: 'you Are exentos of any commitment that think that have with me. There is not commitment with me'. They show me the interest, expose them my point of view and the rest is spare known by all. It is true that seat me responsible and am not proud of how finish everything", regretted.

"I am motivated and with many win that it arrive the Eurocopa and the World-wide. Have win to speak with the players and trasmitirles the values. The Selection does not go to change, although the lists will have my distinct nuance to the ones of the previous seleccionador. It would like me from here leave to stir up the rubbish and think in the Selection", concluded.
