Luis Enrique is fine with his players having sex before matches – as long as they're not orgies.
The Spain coach has opened up about the topic of athletes and intercourse while appearing on a Twitch stream at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
During his conversation, Enrique discussed the idea of having sex ahead of games, admitting it's 'totally normal' before encouraging sports stars to perhaps avoid multiple-person orgies.
"It's something I consider totally normal," he said
"I mean if you're at an orgy the night before a match it's not ideal. But hey."

A great character as well as a great manager!#ESP #FIFAWorldCup
He added: "With the clubs, they are at home and I am zero worried if [the players] do it or not. If they do it, it is because it is going well for them. With common sense, each one with their own wife or with whomever he wants. It falls within normality."
Completely unprompted, the Spanish legend then opened up about his own experiences of sex while he was a player.
"I consider sex to be important and as a player whenever I could, with my wife, I did what we had to do," he added.
Despite beating Costa Rica 7-0 in their opening World Cup clash, Enrique admitted his Spain side 'still has room to improve'.
"Our objective is to continuously dominate the play, and for that you have to have the ball," Luis Enrique told TVE.
"Your opponent gets tired and can’t get into it, our pressing was exceptional and the 16 players we used were superb — although we still have room to improve."
