The Spanish soccer federation (RFEF) wants Spain coach Vicente del Bosque to remain in the job despite the team’s failure at the World Cup finals in Brazil, according to secretary general Jorge Perez.
Del Bosque, who has a contract until after the 2016 European Championships in France, said he would consider his position after the holders lost their opening two Group B games to the Netherlands and Chile and were eliminated from the tournament.
No decision before return
Perez said there had not yet been any formal discussion about Del Bosque’s future and it had been decided to wait until the team, who play their final match against Australia on Monday, was back in Spain before holding talks.
“It is better to let some time elapse and wait to discuss things calmly in Madrid,” Perez said on Spanish radio. “When Del Bosque signed the contract (to 2016) he said that if for any reason we thought he should not continue he would leave,” he added.

“Del Bosque has not presented his resignation and if he did we would ask him to carry on. His family might convince him not to continue but we will not find anyone better. From the top to the bottom at the federation we are with Del Bosque. If we have the best why change?” Del Bosque, 63, has already earned his place in the pantheon of soccer’s greatest managers despite the unexpected setback in Brazil.
