Spain manager Luis Enrique has said there will be no sex bans for his team in Qatar but said it would not be  ideal for his players to be at an orgy the night before a match.

The Spaniard's revealing comment did not come from a press conference, instead it came on one of his Twitch streams which he started during the World Cup to connect with the supporters.

In his latest stream, Enrique discussed the topic of having sex before games. The Spain coach believes that it is totally normal.

It's something I consider totally normal. I mean if you're at an orgy the night before it's not ideal but hey!

‘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,’ he said.

The treble winning manager at Barcelona was also asked when is he starting Onlyfans. Enrique mistaking it for a dating website, replied that he did not need it as he already has enough dating done in his life before someone interrupted him laughing.

Sex Bans At World Cups

Multiple world cup coaches in the past have a different stance than Enrique on the topic. Most recently, former Germany manager Joachim Low and Panama manager Hernan Danio Gomez put a sex ban in place in the 2018 edition of the tournament. However, it did not help either team as both countries exited at the group stage.

Two England managers have also had the strict policy in place. Sven Goran Errikson first put it in place for the 2006 World Cup but England crashed out in the quarter finals to Portugal. Four years later, Fabio Capello made it even stricter, banning the English players' wives and girlfriends from coming to South Africa for the tournament.

The only success story of the policy is Brazil's triumph in 2002. Manager Luiz Felipe Scolarli forbid his players from having sex for 40 days, starting from their pre-tournament training. He led his team to victory in South Korea and Japan that year, beating Germany 2-0 in the final. Ronaldo who scored a brace in the final, said that he'd always remember the ache below during that World Cup.

The World Cup in 2002 was a wonderful memory but I will always remember the ache down below just as much as lifting the trophy.

Successful Start

Enrique's side made a successful start to the World Cup. They hammered Costa Rica 7-0 in their opener, not allowing their opponents a single shot or a corner. Next up for Spain is fellow European side Germany on Sunday, who lost 2-1 to Japan earlier this week. Spanish fans will be hoping to see their side lift their 2nd ever World Cup this year and more of Enrique's revealing twitch streams along the way.
