THIS IS SAD! Former Spain & Barcelona Manager Loses Daughter To Cancer 31

Former Spain and Barcelona manager Luis Enrique has paid tribute to his daughter after she died from bone cancer aged nine.

Enrique thanked hospital staff for their care of his daughter, Xana, during her five-month illness.

In June, Enrique stepped down as coach of the Spanish national team after less than a year in charge to be with his daughter.

“You will be the star that guides our family,” he said.

“We will miss you very much but we will remember you every day of our lives in the hope that in the future we will meet again.”

The Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) said it “mourns the sad loss of little Xana” and it “wants to show our condolences to family and friends, joining us all today to their pain”.

Barcelona, who Enrique guided to two La Liga titles and the 2015 Champions League and also made 301 appearances for as a player, said: “Our condolences and all our sympathy for Luis Enrique and his family at this very difficult time. RIP Xana.”
