  • Spain knocked out of World Cup 2018

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

"After many kilometres of walking together, the Royal Spanish Football Federation and Fernando Hierro put an end to their relationship once the participation of Spain in the World Cup in Russia ended".

Under the 50-year-old, the Spaniards topped their World Cup group ahead of Portugal, but then suffered a disappointing last-16 exit when they were surprisingly beaten by hosts Russian Federation on penalties.

Following Spain's shock elimination at the 2018 World Cup, coach Fernando Hierro has chose to part ways with the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RSFF).

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

Spain are set to hire José Enrique as the new manager of the national team, according to reports in Spain, after Fernando Hierro declined an offer to stay in the role.

Hierro was named sporting director for the second time in 2017 but was unexpectedly catapulted into the role of national team coach the day before the World Cup began when Julen Lopetegui was sacked after agreeing to join Real Madrid.

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

A last-minute 3-3 draw in the opening match against Portugal - with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring a fantastic free-kick in the last moments of the game - and a 2-2 draw with Morocco ultimately saw Spain underachieve despite gaining qualification from Group B.

Lopetegui's decision to have accepted Real Madrid job masterminded the rationale for him to have been axed by the Spanish Football Federation chiefs.
