The 49-year-old coach left his job with Spain’s national team in June because of his daughter’s illness. He initially stepped away temporarily and delegated his duties to then assistant coach Robert Moreno, but eventually resigned to focus solely on his family.
Momento de mucho dolor y tristeza. Descansa en paz XANITA.

Luis Enrique ended his message by saying Xana “will be the star that guides our family.”
