Spain head coach Luis Enrique rules himself out of taking the Manchester United job before the 2022 World Cup.

Spain head coach Luis Enrique has ruled himself out of taking the Manchester United job before the 2022 World Cup.

The 51-year-old is believed to be one of a number of potential candidates to replace interim boss Ralf Rangnick in the summer, along with Ajax's Erik ten Haag and Paris Saint-Germain's Mauricio Pochettino.

Enrique is allegedly admired by many among United's hierarchy and the Daily Mirror reports that the Red Devils intend to hold talks with the Spaniard over the vacancy at Old Trafford.

However, the former Barcelona boss has revealed that he is committed to leading the Spanish national team in Qatar later this year, and has hinted that he may consider his future after the tournament.

Speaking to reporters ahead of Spain's friendly fixture with Iceland, Enrique said: "I will be in Qatar with Spain because I have given my word and there is nothing that makes me more excited than representing my country in the World Cup; later, we'll see."

Enrique won two La Liga titles, three Copa del Reys and the Champions League in charge of Barcelona between 2014 and 2017, before leading Spain to the final of the 2020-21 Nations League and the semi-finals of Euro 2020.

Like Enrique, Sevilla head coach Julen Lopetegui has seemingly ruled himself out of the running to become United's next boss, after stating he has 'no doubt' that he will be in charge of the La Liga outfit next season.
