Luis Rubiales, president of the RFEF, attended this Monday to the media in the presentation of Luis de la Fuente like new seleccionador and valued the changes that there will be now in the Selection. "We communicate the Thursday to Luis Enrique that went to begin a new project. It did in an environment of affection and gratitude. I want to command him a strong embrace. We have lived happy moments and moments harder. This same morning close the confirmation, although it will sign with date to 1 January", signalled initially Rubiales.

The director was consulted on if the no continuity of Luis Enrique answers only to sportive questions, to what explained that "The three (he, Molina and Luque) coincide in that it finish the stage of Luis Enrique. We begin to a new project and to a change of structure in the Selection. I have read that if Twitch, that if the bicycle… simply think that it was necessary to begin a new stage and at all more. In the morning of the Thursday appreciated him to Luis Enrique his work. So much the salient director, Molina, like the entrante, Luque, as I same agreed in appointing to De la Fuente".

On the possibility of renewal to the Spanish technician, highlighted that "him trasmitimos to Luis Enrique that went to initiate a new project, and this is something normal in the world of the football. Two years ago we decide that before the World-wide did not go to pose the renewal. To me it has not said me that it wanted to follow because it communicated him that it finished a project and began another".

The maximum mandator of the Federation also spoke of the goodbye of Molina of the sportive direction and of the new charge of Albert Luque. "I want to show him to Molina my eternal gratitude. You have done a work of 10. With loyalty, giving the leadership to the one who for real has it, that are the seleccionador and the footballers. I think that there is not anybody in the RFEF that do not want to you-Albert Luque is a very ready person, that knows the football and is very brave. It arrives in another distinct place to the of Molina. He goes to be the director of the absolute selection. Luque Will be also the boss of the new seleccionador".

They are missing decisions for taking

Rubiales Equally explained that there is not enclosed decision on the how remain the different selections. "It is necessary to work in the next days. Francis Hernández is the one who will decide. We work in team. The conversations that had were cordial when we explain them the new project. We said him, in his day, that wanted to speak of his continuity, but always waiting for the World-wide. Always we have said it. If one of the two parts does not want to follow, was clear. It did not say me if it wanted to follow".
