Héctor Adolfo Enrique (born 26 April 1962 in Lanús) is a retired Argentine footballer who played as a midfielder, and who was assistant coach of the Argentina national team. He played for La Seleccion in the 1986 World Cup and in Copa América 1989, winning the former competition.
He is currently assistant coach at Al-Wasl club of UAE Arabian Gulf League.
Nicknamed El Negro by both press and fans, Enrique began his playing career in 1982 with 2nd division side Club Atlético Lanús, in 1983 he joined Club Atlético River Plate where he played between 1983 and 1990. His Golden Year was 1986, when he won the 1985–86 Primera División Argentina, Copa Libertadores and Intercontinental Cup. For Argentina he was a vital part of the squad that won the 1986 World Cup.
Enrique was the last man to touch the ball when inside the Argentine half he passed it to Diego Maradona, who would then score what became to be known as the Goal of the Century. After the game, he jokingly suggested that his pass was so good, it would have been difficult for Maradona not to score. This joke would then become popular in Argentina, often mentioned by players involved in popular goals.
A serious knee injury prevented him from playing in the 1990 World Cup.
Enrique played alongside his brother Carlos at River (1988–1990) and at their home town club Lanús (1992–1993). He also played for Deportivo Español in Argentina and Tosu Futures and FPI Hamamatsu in Japan.
