Del Bosque hints at quitting Spain

By Football News



Current Spain manager and former Real Madrid boss, Vicente del Bosque was in Leganes promoting a football school along with ex-player Victor Fernandez.

The young boys present asked the 61-year-old many questions, one of which he responded to by suggesting that 'this phase (as national team coach) is the last one for a coach' before, inevitably, being asked on who he thought was better, Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo.

"Why do I have to choose between Messi or Ronaldo? They are both great players. But, I prefer those that I have in my national team," he was quoted as saying.

Another question posed was by a fan of Fernando Torres, who wanted to know why his favourite player no longer plays 90 minutes of every match.

"They cannot play all the time, this is the problem we have. We have great players in (the national team), we try to be fair and choose the best players for every match," he said.
