  • Rafa Benitez-Spain

The former world champions are seeking a replacement for Fernando Hierro who stepped down following his country's disastrous showing at the World Cup.

Fernando Hierro has quit his role as sporting director of the Spanish FA following the round-of-16 exit at the World Cup.

The 50-year-old has made a decision to turn down his former role, despite being still under contract with the Spanish FA (RFEF).

Spain lost on penalties to hosts Russian Federation in the second round last Sunday.

"The last Spanish coach declined to return to his previous position as sports director of the RFEF to seek new horizons and undertake new professional challenges".

Spain's La Roja interim manager Fernando Hierro has resigned from his coaching job with the Royal Spanish Football Federation, reports suggest.

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

"Thanks for everything, Fernando!" the statement from Spanish Football Federation's official website read in part.

Hierro took interim charge of Spain on the eve of the tournament in Russian Federation, after Julen Lopetegui was dramatically sacked as La Roja boss following the announcement of his appointment by Real Madrid.

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

But with Hierro stepping down from his roles, the hunt for a permanent manager has started, with Roberto Martinez and Luis Enrique among the top contenders.

Spain only won one game at the World Cup, against Iran, and drew their other two group matches vs. Portugal and Morocco.

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