Vicente del Bosque claims that he will not rush any decision over his future as Spain manager.

Spain head coach Vicente del Bosque has claimed that he will not rush to make a decision over his future following their World Cup disappointment.

The defending champions have been knocked out of the tournament with a game to spare in their Group B campaign, and Del Bosque insists that the choice he makes will be for the benefit of the team rather than for personal reasons.

"We are still competing, so I don't think this is the moment to speak about my future, but I will do what is best for everyone," the 63-year-old told reporters.

"I want to repeat that I don't want to be a hindrance to the Spanish Football Federation. The good of Spanish football should [come] above all personalities.

"I want to try and act correctly with the Federation, which has always treated me well. If I am a problem for our football, I will go. The interests of the national team and the Federation will rank above my own interests when I make my decision."

Spanish Football Federation's director of football Jorge Perez is hopeful that Del Bosque will remain in charge.
