Spain coach Luis Enrique has shrugged off one interaction with a Swedish fan on Friday.
Following Spain’s 2-1 defeat to Sweden, Luis Enrique was spotted giving the finger to a fan who, dressed in a Sweden jersey, addressed the La Roja coach in an offensive manner.
Although there are no pictures or videos from the incident, Luis Enrique was furious that verbal abuse is not being condemned in the world of football.
“It is curious that you are more concerned with my gesture and not the verbal abuse that provokes it and you do not condemn it,” Luis Enrique told the press conference ahead of Spain’s game with Georgia as part of the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers.
“I am used to it.”
