Luis Enrique has showed off his ripped physique as he prepares for Spain’s opening clash against Costa Rica at the World Cup.
The Spain boss is looking to guide his side into the latter stages of a major tournament for the second time after reaching the semi-finals in Euro 2020.
The ex-Barcelona manager has been putting his side through their paces ahead of Wednesday afternoon’s match with Costa Rica.
And Enrique is looking in just as good shape as his squad after sharing a topless photo of himself on social media.
Taking to Instagram, the former Real Madrid ace posted a picture of him wearing nothing but a cap and shorts as he flaunted his impressive six-pack.
The word ‘ready’ ran across the image, while he captioned the post: “Day 10 – it’s show time.”
But he has revealed he is a huge fan of Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta having watched the Gunners’ All or Nothing docuseries on Amazon.
Arteta was in Barcelona’s youth set-up when Enrique was a player at the Nou Camp.

And he has caught the eye of his Spanish compatriot while in charge of the Emirates outfit, as Enrique explained on his Twitch channel: “I’ve watched ‘All or Nothing’.
“I love Mikel Arteta.”
And Enrique has also declared he is a huge fan of the extra added time at the World Cup, with officials keeping a closer track on wasted time during matches.
He remarked: “I really love all the added time.
” Above all because teams like us who have lots of possession, we always complain that not enough time is really played.
“So I think it’s marvellous to play so much added time in both halves, the most effective time possible (the better).
“Any team can play as they want, but the more quality minutes played the better.
“So I am very in favour of this measure, it is the right thing to do.”
