DEL BOSQUE RULES OUT PRESIDENCY

Spanish national team manager Vicente del Bosque has ruled out the possibility of becoming the next Real Madrid president. There have been recent reports suggesting that Real Madrid would be willing to have Vicente del Bosque as the next president.

The president is elected by the members of the club and it is usually a status symbol for Spanish supporters to have this post. The Spanish national team manager was in charge of the club for one season during which time he won the Champions League title. Since then, he has went on to lift the European Championships and also the FIFA World Cup.

He has now dismissed the reports suggesting that he would take up the president role at Real Madrid by saying that he wants to remain in football in an active way after leaving the Spanish national team post. He is expected to resign as the national team manager after the end of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. He has made extensive changes to the Spanish national team in the last four years to make them almost unrecognisable from the team that won the Euro 2008. The Spanish national team now are almost a replica of the way Barcelona play their football.

"No, I do not aspire to being Real Madrid's president. When I leave Spain, it will be time to end my career as a coach, but I would like to remain close to football. I will always accept a new job, as long as I get to defend football. I do not see myself as a leader, the most important thing are the players, who have become role models for the youngsters with their example. The only thing I did was to try to coordinate all this, make sure the relationship between the players were good," Del Bosque added.
