Vicente Del Bosque has not yet decided who he will name in Spain’s World Cup squad in place of Victor Valdes.
Del Bosque spoke with Spanish radio station Onda Cero and revealed his first thought was sympathy for Valdes.
“It’s very sad. It’s a very bad injury for him,” the national team Coach said.
“It’s always bad when you can’t play for your club or at the World Cup.
“I don’t want to get into who might be Victor’s substitute.
“The first thing is to hope he recovers well. At the moment we’ve not thought about anything else.
“He is our only thought as he is in a bad situation.”
