Enrique's previous assistant boss Robert Moreno took the reins while the former Barcelona manager was away, but after Spain's 5-0 win over Romania on Monday night, Moreno is thought to have found out his fate and he left the Wanda Metropolitano stadium in tears.
And Spanish Football Federation president Luis Rubiales has now confirmed that Enrique will be returning to his post ahead of the European Championships next year.
"It was clear that in the moment that Luis Enrique felt strong to return, the door was always open for him. I have always said that, and have always been honest, nobody can feel tricked.
"We must explain the timeline. I spoke with Luis Enrique three times since his daughter died. In August to pass on my condolences. We had a meeting at the end of October. And I talked to him again yesterday.
"We want to thank Robert Moreno for his work, he did very well, and we are very happy with what he did. But I repeat that Robert Moreno told us he'd spoken with Luis Enrique, who had told him he wanted to return."
