OMG! Fernando Hierro Leaves Spain Role After World Cup Exit

Fernando Hierro has resigned from his role as Sporting Director of the Spanish Football Association, after their exit from the 2018 World Cup.


Hierro was appointed as head coach just hours after former Coach Julen Lopetegui was sacked for taking the job at Real Madrid by the Spanish FA.


On Sunday, The Spanish FA has said in a statement that the 50-year-old had decided against returning to his role and would instead seek a new challenge.


“[Hierro] rejected going back to his former position as the RFEF sporting director, to look for new horizons and face new professional challenges,” the statement read.


“After two stints as the federation sporting director,the first one between 2007 and 2011 – which was the best era of the senior national team, when it won the European Championship under Luis Aragones as coach in 2008 and the 2010 World Cup with Vicente del Bosque – and a second stint from November 2007 until now.


“The RFEF wants to thank Fernando Hierro for his compromise and sense of duty when taking the reigns of the national team under extraordinary circumstances, as well as performing all his duties.


“The federation wants to highlight the professional and personal values of an extraordinary athlete, and we wish him the best.”
