Vicente del Bosque has confirmed in his Press conference today that he has extended his contract with Spain by another two years.
The 62-year-old’s previous deal was due to expire at the end of La Roja’s World Cup campaign in Brazil next summer.
However, on from indications since securing the team’s qualification to that tournament, Del Bosque has today affirmed that he has signed on for another two years, to take him to the end of the 2016 European Championships set to be held in France.
“I can confirm that I have renewed with the Spanish national team until 2016,” the tactician told reporters in Friday’s Press conference ahead of Spain’s friendly with Equatorial Guinea tomorrow.
Del Bosque took over from Luis Aragones in 2008 and with Spain has won the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and the 2012 European Championship in Poland and Ukraine.
