Del Bosque stay until 2016 'agreed'

Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque says he expects to stay on until France 2016, barring an unwanted surprise at next summer’s World Cup finals.

Del Bosque, in charge as La Roja won both World Cup 2010 and Euro 2012, oversaw a slightly rockier qualifying campaign this time around -- but Tuesday’s 2-0 win over Georgia in Albacete sealed progression directly to Brazil 2014 as Group I winners.

The veteran boss told Television Espanola that he was looking forward to two more years in the job, but left it open that he might not continue should Spain not do as well as hoped when defending their title next year.

"We are agreed," Del Bosque said. "We get on very well. I really think highly of the national team, the federation, the directors and we are happy, that is the truth. But we have to be very careful as there is a long way to go, and then the World Cup, where things might not go as we think."

Nevertheless a deal for Del Bosque, 62, to remain in place up until the next European Championships is expected to be signed in the coming months, with the former Real Madrid player and coach widely respected and no obvious successor waiting to take on the job.

RFEF spokesperson Jorge Perez also told Spain's national broadcaster that while there was no rush to get everything signed he was sure an agreement would be reached before next summer.

"We have spoken with him, and there will be no problem," Perez said. "But that does not mean we will sign the contract tomorrow. We have until the World Cup to do it, calmly, but we are delighted with him, he is also happy, so there is no problem."
