Robert Moreno, who stepped in for Enrique after he had to take a break following his daughter's untimely demise because of bone cancer in June, bid a tearful goodbye to the Spanish first team after their 5-0 win over Romania on Monday.
"In the end we can't do anything", he explained. He said he wanted to agree to his departure and not be an obstacle to the return of Luis Enrique.
"We want to thank Robert Moreno for his work, he did very well, and we are very happy with what he did. We found out Luis Enrique wanted to come back through Moreno".
Enrique, 49, has enormous experience as a manager - standing in the dugout at Barcelona, Celta Vigo, Roma and Barcelona's reserve side before taking over as Spain boss in July 2018. I spoke with Luis Enrique three times since his daughter died. Today we can confirm that Luis Enrique is returning to the national team.
Rubiales added on Tuesday: 'Luis Enrique can choose his own staff'.

Rubiales said that things had happened quickly because Moreno "didn't come to the meeting (on Tuesday) morning, but sent two lawyers, who we received with complete respect" to speak about the termination of his contract.
Spain had sealed their place at the finals a month ago and clinched top spot in Group F with a 7-0 win at home to Malta on Friday but they still made a flying start and took the lead when midfielder Fabian Ruiz volleyed home in the eighth minute.
Rubiales also confirmed that Enrique would continue his duties all the way up to the next World Cup in Qatar in 2022.
But Luis Enrique will have key decisions to make in the coming months after Moreno's spell was characterised more by experimentation than either continuity or cohesion.
Moreno is said to have been left feeling "used and betrayed", but Rubiales explained that he could have no qualms about the re-appointment of Enrique, stating that the recruitment process has been nothing but transparent. "But the leader of this project was Luis Enrique". "We have kept our word (to) him and with Robert".
