Spanish Football Federation's director of football Jorge Perez claims that manager Vicente del Bosque still has their backing in spite of suffering two successive losses in the World Cup that will lead to an early exit.
“We have players and a federation who are very consolidated, we are not falling apart. We will take the time to do what is best for Spanish football, and I include myself there.” - Vicente del Bosque
"From top to bottom in the federation we are all behind Del Bosque," he said over a Spanish radio interview.
"If he does resign, we will try to convince him to stay."
"We still haven't spoken with Del Bosque, it's better to put a bit of distance between us and wait and then speak calmly in Madrid," he added.
"His family might convince him to leave, but we aren't going to find anyone better."
