Era won’t fade away, says Bosque
PARIS: Spain coach Vicente del Bosque batted away questions about his future and denied it was the end of an era for his side. “It has been and is a great era for Spanish football,” Del Bosque said. “I don’t think an era has ended. Spanish football is very well structured — there are good academies, very good players and very good clubs. This shows us how difficult it is to win a major championship. Only one can win — the other 23 will be eliminated.” Of his future he said: “There is no point going over and over this, I will speak with the president and decide the best thing for the national team.”
