Fernando Hierro cutting all ties with Spain setup

Hierro has decided to"seek new horizons and undertake new professional challenges

Worrying the announcement might cause disarray in the squad the Spanish FA decided to make sure there was disarray by sacking him and having Hierro take over, whose only previous managerial experience was at Oviedo in the second division.

"The last Spain coach has declined to return to his old job as sporting director of the Federation in order to look for new horizons and new professional challenges".

Sunday morning brings an "exclusive" that reports Hierro won't be getting the job on a permanent basis, with Spain not impressing in the tournament and falling at the last 16 stage in a poor performance against Russian Federation. After a 1-1 draw with Russian Federation in the round of 16 they were eliminated 4-3 on penalties.

Spain's La Roja interim manager Fernando Hierro has resigned from his coaching job with the Royal Spanish Football Federation, reports suggest.

"The Federation would also like to highlight the professional and human values shown by an extraordinary sportsman to whom it wishes the best of luck for the future".

Hierro's time as Spanish boss was short and not-so-sweet having spent just four games in charge, losing to Russian Federation on penalties in the knockout round of 16.

Hierro took over two days before Spain's opening game after Julen Lopetegui was sacked for agreeing to take over at Real Madrid after the tournament.

The former World Cup winners in 2010 played out a 3-3 draw with Portugal during his debut match claimed a narrow 1-0 win over Iran before battling Morocco to a 2-2 draw.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that that former World Cup winners Spain have named Fernando Hierro as their new coach ahead of their campaign at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.
