After Spain’s outing in the World Cup 2014, there have been urges from the fans that all the senior players should be ousted and a young team should be built keeping the next two big assignments i.e. the Euro 16 and WC 18 in mind. But, Vicente Del Bosque, the manager of the team who escaped the axe despite having one of his worst tournaments in Brazil, doesn’t seem to be going to do so.

Del Bosque is indeed looking to rebuild the team, but, he is trying to do so by blending the experience and young blood, not by changing the entire complexion of the squad. By his selections for the Euro qualifiers, he has made it absolutely clear that he will not overlook the senior players at least for the near future.

This sort of situation had arisen in front of the Germany boss Joachim Low as well after the defeat of his team against Italy in the semi final of the previous Euro Championships. The fans were furious at the repeated failures of the team in the knockout phases of the big tournaments and they were calling for the head of the seniors. But, Low remained patient. He stuck with the same personnel and those players eventually won Germany the World Cup this year.

There is no reason why this can’t happen in Spain’s case. Mind you, the seniors in the Spanish side are not that old. The likes of Mata, Fabregas and Busquets are all well below 30. They have got to an age now where they should be playing their best Football for the next 2-3 years. Also, their presence can help somebody like Munir El Haddadi who is supposed to be the next superstar in the making for Spain.

So, Vicente Del Bosque is right in keeping some of these seniors in the mix as they can still provide so much to Spanish Football.

Del Bosque Asked To Stay

Vicente Del Bosque, the man who oversaw Spain’s disastrous campaign in the FIFA World Cup 2014, has been asked to stay at his post.

La Roja are going to start a rebuilding phase and the higher officials of the Spanish association doesn’t want to make too many changes in the coaching staff at such a crucial time. They want Del Bosque to remain in charge and get the young players, who would come into the team, ready for the next Euro Championships.

Quite a few of the senior players of the Spanish side are set to announce their retirement after what happened in Brazil. So, Del Bosque’s job is not going to be easy at all in the next couple of years.

Del Bosque is a trusted man of the Spanish association. A few months ago, he was reported to have got a couple of lucrative offers from overseas, but, he had rejected them to keep working with the La Roja set up. So, he seems to have been rewarded for his faithfulness by not being sacked.

The Spanish team that Del Bosque is going to be in charge of now would be largely inexperienced, but, there would be some senior guys in there. The likes of Sergio Busquets and Diego Costa would continue in all likelihood.

As far as the goalie Iker Casillas is concerned, he himself has to make a call whether he wants to remain active in international football or not. The association believes that he can still contribute. So, if he doesn’t retire, he would be kept in the mix.

That means Del Bosque will certainly have some experience to work with, but, mostly, he will have to deal with young players. Let’s see if he can bring the glory of Spanish football back in two years’ time.
