New Spain manager: 'It's totally premature' - Xavi admits he's not ready

Hierro has decided to

Sunday morning brings an "exclusive" that reports Hierro won't be getting the job on a permanent basis, with Spain not impressing in the tournament and falling at the last 16 stage in a poor performance against Russian Federation.

But if you think really hard you might remember that on the eve of the tournament Spain chose to sack Julen Lopetegui.

In a statement on Sunday, the RFEF revealed that Hierro had decided not to revert to his former role as the governing body's sporting director.

The Spanish Football Federation were not immediately available for comment.

His team scraped their way to the top of Group B with five points by beating Iran 1-0 and drawing with Portugal and Morocco, and then lost on penalties to Russian Federation in the Round of 16. "The coach declined to return to his previous position as sporting director of the Spanish FA to seek new horizons and undertake new challenges".

"The Federation would like to thank Fernando Hierro for his commitment and sense of responsibility for taking charge of the national team in extraordinary circumstances and his other roles for the organisation, which will always be his home", added the statement.

The 50-year-old has now also opted againt returning to his post as director at the RSFF.

"The Federation want to highlight the professional and human values of an extraordinary athlete to whom we wish the best of fortunes".

In Russia, Spain topped Group B under Hierro.

Former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique is set to be named as Spain's new manager.

Lopetegui's decision to have accepted Real Madrid job masterminded the rationale for him to have been axed by the Spanish Football Federation chiefs.
