Before starting the training session this Tuesday in the sports city of Las Rozas, Luis Enrique met with his players to inform them of a new communication system.
Each footballer had a small speaker incorporated in the vest where the physical data is recorded in the GPS to listen directly to the coach’s orders, installed on his traditional scaffolding.
And the coach, who is preparing Spain’s last official duels corresponding to the League of Nations before debuting in the World Cup in Qatar in two months, appeared on the training ground with another little ‘walkie talkie’ to communicate directly with the football players. And in full session.

“You are going to hear the coach’s voice here,” he told him Luis Enrique his players indicating his back. “I hope not to shout too much, but I’m not used to it,” acknowledged the Asturian coach to justify such a unique communication system.
“Here dad will come out from behind”
“I hope it doesn’t get too attached and that it can help you. You won’t have to do anything. Dad will come out from behind here,” added the coach in a video broadcast on the social networks of the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF).
And from the gym, where the previous talk took place, to the training field. “Koke, you only have to go down and support when the center-back needs it. If you don’t stay there,” Luis Enrique commented to the Atlético de Madrid player, who was directly listening to that order.
“Álvaro goes down inside you, you have to go in support”, he would later advise bruise, the rojiblanco striker. “Get away, Gavi! Further back, Gavi! Further back! Go back and wait for Rodri to go to the side,” he told the young Barça midfielder. “Busi, tell the centrals that they either circulate three or four times or we start playing back and forth and that’s not what we play,” he specified, speaking on the back of Busquetsthe captain of the team.
