Spanish national team: Who will be the successor of Vicente del Bosque?

“My continuity is an issue that I have to deal with the president. I will have a conversation with the president and we will decide the most appropriate for the Spanish national team.” Yesterday, at the post-shock press conference that led to the farewell of the Spanish national Team (2-0 defeat to Italy), Vicente del Bosque left his continuity at the helm of the national team.

In principle, the Utrerano Joaquín Caparrós is the top favourite to inherit his position, but if Angel María Villar leaves the position of president of the Royal Spanish Football Federation to aspire to the throne of UEFA and there is a change of representative, the cast of candidates could grow considerably.

In fact, according to the newspaper As, in case Villar does not follow, the list of candidates on the bench of Spain would increase with such disparate technicians as Juan Carlos Garrido, Pepe Mel, Roberto Martínez, Julen Lopetegui and even the Frenchman Luis Fernández.

But there is one more alternative. If the RFEF elections are postponed until November and Villar is scheduled for re-election, the current ruler might choose to ask Del Bosque to hold office until that date, at which point he would already give way to the new coach.

In this way, the former Real Madrid team would have to lead the team in the first four clashes of the aforementioned qualifying phase.
