His career with Spain National Football Team successfully makes him one of the top football coaches. This 64-year-old man can make amazing record of his remarkable career. He’s got championship title of World Cup 2010 and UEFA Euro 2012.
In his book with the title, ‘Winning and Losing: Emotional Strength’, he wrote that if everything is going well as he expects, he will leave the national team and RFEF. “I’ve been coaching football for 8 years and I think I don’t want to continue this job and to extend my duty. My biggest wish for my entire career is that to leave my job with amazing achievement. Quite frankly, I can retire in the next couple of years, but I want to be like the other Spanish people who retire at such this age,” he added.
“I consider my strength in myself which has chances to enjoy football as a career. From now on, I will see the future ahead of me after I leave this career with proud.”
