Fernando Hierro resigns from his coaching role with the Spanish Football Federation

Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez

Under Hierro, Spain finished top of Group B but were knocked out at the last-16 stage following a penalty shootout defeat to Russian Federation.

Remembering a world before the World Cup started is proving very hard now that we're in this utopia of brilliant football and weather so incredible that even in Manchester I've forgotten what rain looks like.

Hierro stepped in with just two days to go before the World Cup started after the Spanish FA sacked Julen Lopetegui amid the chaos sparked by the announcement that he would take over at Real Madrid after the tournament.

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

They finished top of Group B but suffered a shock elimination by hosts Russian Federation in the last 16 last Sunday in a penalty shoot-out after a 1-1 draw.

The 48 year old's contract would be for two years, taking them up to the Euros in 2020 that is due to be played at multiple venues around Europe.
