A notable former player and coach in the professional soccer world lost his 9-year-old daughter this week to osteosarcoma, a form of bone cancer.
Luis Enrique played the sport from 1991 until 2004 for Real Madrid and Barcelona. He also played for Spain’s national team in three World Cups and one European Championship.
The 49-year-old former midfielder became a manager and coach later in life. In 2018, he was named as coach for the Spanish national team, but stepped down from his post earlier this year for “family reasons.”
