Fernando Hierro steps down as Spain manager after four games in charge

Rafa Benitez-Spain

Fernando Hierro, who stood in as Spain coach when Julen Lopetegui was sacked on the eve of the World Cup, will not continue in the role, the Spanish football federation said Sunday.

The Federation have scheduled a media conference on Monday to announce changes to the organisation's structure after Fernando Hierro, who took charge of the team during the World Cup, left his role as sporting director.

However, the 2010 world champions were knocked out on penalties by hosts Russian Federation in the last 16.

At the last count, Enrique has won La Liga silverware with both Real Madrid and Barcelona alongside the league, cup and Champion League treble as boss of the Nou Camp dwellers.

The Spanish FA hope to see this, too, and while the 48-year-old won't give one-to-one interviews, his players are thought to be allowed to do so.

The former Barcelona manager, who was favoured ahead of the other candidates Quique Sánchez Flores y Michel, will be officially presented as new head coach of the national setup in the coming days.

Conditions good for getting Thai boys out
Authorities have been racing to pump out water from the cave before more storms in the coming days raise the water levels again. Boys trapped in a Thai cave wrote letters to their parents on Friday, telling them to "be strong" and not to worry.

Remembering a world before the World Cup started is proving very hard now that we're in this utopia of brilliant football and weather so incredible that even in Manchester I've forgotten what rain looks like.

Before Enrique's last match as coach, Pique, a Barcelona mainstay, said: "He is one of the best coaches in history, we have won everything and these three years have been magnificent".

Luis Enrique is favourite to take over as Spain manager.

Belgium gaffer Roberto Martinez was tipped to manage his country having guided the Red Devils to the World Cup semi-finals.

Molina, 47, is a former Spanish national goalkeeper and also played for Atletico Madrid and Deportivo de la Coruna.
