Del Bosque ‘clear on successor’

Vicente Del Bosque is clear who he wants to succeed him as Spain Coach but ‘hasn’t told anyone.’

The World Cup winner intends to step down after Euro 2016 and has told Punto Pelota that he has picked out the Coach he believes would be the ideal replacement.

“I have that clear, but I haven’t told anyone,” Marca quotes Del Bosque as saying.

He elaborated no further on the matter but did explain the difference between training the national team and working at a club such as Real Madrid.

“There are a lot of differences between the Madrid bench and the national team,” he noted.

“The friction of every day at the club is one thing but you have better knowledge of the players. It’s more difficult to talk with the national team.”

Del Bosque sat on the Madrid bench while Zinedine Zidane was a player, and added that Zizou’s lack of coaching experience need not be a hindrance.

“There are examples of Coaches with little experience who have produced very good results,” he argued.
