World Cup 2022: Spain boss says sex is fine, but orgies are not ideal

World Cup 2022 is already capturing our imaginations, and now Spain manager Luis Enrique has come up with a cracking soundbite.

Spain manager Luis Enrique saw his team start their World Cup 2022 campaign in perfect fashion.

A 7-0 thrashing of Costa Rica, with six different goal-scorers, is pretty much as flawless as it gets on matchday 1. It was their biggest ever in a World Cup, and they hogged possession with 82% of the ball.

Enrique has candidly revealed that he has no issue with players having sex at during the tournament but added “orgies are not ideal”.

When asked during a Q&A on Twitch if he conforms to the theory that players should not have sex during a tournament, he responded:

“It’s ridiculous [to ban it]. It’s something I consider totally normal. If you’re at an orgy the night before a match then obviously that’s not ideal, but when I’m a club coach the players are at home the night before a game and it’s not something that worries me at all.

If it’s something they do, then it’s because they need to and want to.

“But I repeat, with common sense! Each one with their partner. It’s normal. When I was a player, if I was at home before a game with my wife, well, we did what we had to do.”

Spain next face Germany, who were on the receiving end of a shock defeat against Japan. None of Germany’s last 51 World Cup matches have ended goalless, so there’s no risk of this one being boring.
