Formerly of both Real Madrid and Barcelona, Enrique was a versatile forward in his playing days who also won 62 caps for his country. He cut his coaching teeth at Barcelona B, but spells at Roma and Celta Vigo followed before he took the top job at Camp Nou. Two Liga titles, three Copa del Rey wins and UEFA Champions League glory in 2015 followed in a glorious spell which led to his appointment as Spain coach. Has had two stints sandwiching a brief hiatus for personal reasons, taking Spain to the UEFA EURO 2020 semi-finals and 2021 UEFA Nations League final.

Only Iker Casillas and Sergio Ramos have won more caps than the metronomic Barcelona midfielder, who has been at the fore ever since helping his country to lift the World Cup in 2010 and European Championship two years later. Busquets is one of Barças most decorated ever players, with three UEFA Champions League titles, eight Liga crowns, seven Copa del Rey wins and three UEFA Super Cups to his name.
