Del Bosque Confirmed As Spain Boss

As had been widely predicted the Spanish Football Federation have confirmed that Vicente del Bosque will replace Luis Aragones as the coach of the national side.

Speaking to the media, a spokesman for the Spanish Football Federation confirmed the news.

“The president of the Spanish Football Federation Angel Maria Villar proposed the nomination of Del Bosque to the executive committee which was accepted,” said the spokesman before adding, “He will be presented on Thursday.”

Del Bosque replaces Luis Aragones who stepped down after leading Spain to triumph in Euro 2008 after four years at the helm. The 69 year old has since signed a deal to coach Turkish side Fenerbahce.

It is the new manager's first spell in charge of a national side. He has previously been at the helm of Real Madrid on three separate occasions, and has also had a three year spell with Turkish side Besiktas.

The former Real Madrid manager will therefore be charged with continuing the success enjoyed by Aragones and his first task will be to safely navigate qualifying for World Cup 2010.

Spain have been drawn in Group 5 alongside Turkey, Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Armenia, Estonia and the newly crowned European Champions will be expected to qualify and take their place in South Africa.

The new manager’s first test will come on September 6 when Spain’s face Bosnia in their opening qualifying game.
