Spain manager Luis Enrique has set up his own Twitch channel to 'avoid media spin' at World Cup

Luis Enrique has set up a Twitch channel to document Spain's World Cup journey.

The 2010 winners are in Group E alongside Costa Rica, Germany and Japan.

Before their first game on November 23, Enrique has taken an unprecedented step that'll please a lot of fans.

He posted a video to Twitter announcing the release of daily vlogs about his team's performances and general well-being.

Enrique intends to use the platform to avoid 'media spin' when it comes to his squad.

"Hello everyone! Streamers of the world, watch out! I’m coming in fast!" he explained per Dot Esports. "I’m recording this video to let everyone know that I’ve become a streamer! Well, not yet. I haven’t actually made my debut yet. But my idea is to stream throughout our time in Qatar!"

Spain will arrive in Qatar on November 18. That's when the 52-year-old intends to start streaming.

He continued: "I want to establish a direct relationship with you, the fans, and whoever else may be interested in any information about the team told from a specific viewpoint (mine, and that of my staff)."

It's an unprecedented level of access to an elite international team.

"The stream can only improve," he joked.

“I’m really excited now to experience the excitement that is a World Cup, the pressure that is a World Cup, and to have that communication with all of you."

It's Enrique's second tournament as Spain boss after leading them to the semi-finals of Euro 2020 last summer.

He's left several veteran players out of his squad, including David de Gea, Sergio Ramos and Thiago Alcantara.
