Former Spain national team coach Vicente del Bosque has been appointed to lead a newly formed committee tasked with overseeing the country’s football federation, following recent tumultuous events.

Spain’s Sports Minister Pilar Alegria announced the appointment of former national team coach Vicente del Bosque to lead a special committee overseeing the scandal-plagued RFEF, the national football federation.

The Spanish government’s decision to establish this committee comes in light of the need for interim leadership until new elections are held to replace former federation president Luis Rubiales.

Rubiales, who was recently arrested as part of a corruption probe, also faces legal proceedings related to coercion and sexual assault allegations.

Del Bosque’s appointment brings a wealth of experience, having guided Spain to World Cup glory in 2010 and European Championship triumph in 2012.

He boasts an impressive managerial record, having won eight trophies during his tenure at Real Madrid, including two Champions League titles.

His tenure will continue until new elections are convened following the conclusion of the 2024 Paris Olympics in August.

Spain’s hosting of the 2030 men’s World Cup is a significant upcoming event, but concerns from FIFA regarding the federation’s internal issues could impact Spain’s role as a co-host.

FIFA has been closely monitoring the developments within the federation, underscoring the importance of stability and integrity in football governance.
