Legendary ex-Spanish coach Del Bosque appointed to lead RFEF

The Spanish government has appointed Vicente del Bosque to navigate a tumultuous period for the nation’s football federation.

The ex-Spain manager will oversee a new committee overseeing the RFEF until elections are held to replace Luis Rubiales.

Despite the recent appointment of Pedro Rocha as Rubiales’ successor, he is embroiled in a corruption investigation.

Rubiales was ousted after an inappropriate act at the Women’s World Cup trophy ceremony in 2023.

The former federation president was arrested in early April as part of a corruption probe.

Del Bosque guided Spain to back-to-back European Championships and a historic World Cup victory in 2010.

Before his stint with the national team, he achieved success with Real Madrid, winning two Champions Leagues and La Liga titles.
