  • Rafa Benitez-Spain

Under Hierro, 50, Spain were knocked out at the round-of-16 stage after losing to Russian Federation on penalties.

Martinez played down the links ahead of a quarter-final defeat of tournament favourites Brazil, with former Barcelona coach Luis Enrique also reported to be on the RFEF shortlist along with Michel and Quique Sanchez Flores.

Luis Enrique has signed a two-year deal with the Spanish Football Federation to coach the National team.

Fernando Hierro has left his Spain coaching role and will not also return as the Sporting Director, Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) has confirmed.

Marca's front page has a photograph of Luis Enrique with a headline: "The new Luis".

But if you think really hard you might remember that on the eve of the tournament Spain made a decision to sack Julen Lopetegui.

Enrique will also be taking over a team shorn of captain Andres Iniesta, who has retired from worldwide football.

For all the talk about champion-vs. -champion bouts over the years in the UFC, their actual history is just two chapters long. Once again, Holloway is unable to battle and this makes three consecutive matches where Holloway has turned up lame.

Fernando Hierro, previously the RFEF's sporting director, took over on a temporary basis for the tournament, but has not continued following Spain's disappointing showing in Russian Federation.

Rubiales said: "We know that Luis Enrique is a person of character. We want the internal environment to be the best".

Spain's interim coach Fernando Hierro has cut his ties with the Spanish Football Federation following the team's disastrous exit from the World Cup last week, the organisation said on Sunday.

Given that he spent five years with Real Madrid as a player, Luis Enrique doesn't hold much affinity with Los Blancos and their fans.

Enrique, 48, has been without a club since leaving the Barcelona job in 2017 and has enjoyed a break from management for the past year taking part in numerous cycling events including the Costa Blanca Bike Race in January.

He scored 12 goals in 62 appearances for Spain, was a member of the squad that won gold at the 1992 Olympics and represented the national team at three World Cups as well as Euro 1996.
