Luis Enrique spoke to the media ahead of Spain’s game against Malta and hit back at his team’s critics who say they lack firepower.
“The debate about the lack of goals… I hope we continue with this ‘lack of goals’,” said former Barca coach Lucho.
“In the seven games that I’ve had as coach we have 19 goals, or 2.7 per game. The top scorer in La Liga, Barcelona, have on average 2.6. Given that we’ve got a lack of goals, we’re not doing so badly.”
The Asturian was happy with Spain’s 2-1 win over Norway.
“The game was even better than our 6-0 win over Croatia, I’m very happy,” said Lucho.
“I’d give it a nine not a 10 because we were not effective.”
On Jordi Alba he said: “Alba is one of the players I’ve know the most for a long time, his level is and always has been very high.”
