Spain’s interim coach Fernando Hierro has cut his ties with the Spanish Football Federation following the team’s disastrous exit from the World Cup last week, the organization said on Sunday.

“After many kilometers traveled together, the Spanish Football Federation and Fernando Hierro have called an end to their relationship now that Spain have finished their participation in the World Cup,” said a statement on the Spain team’s website (www.sefutbol.com).

“The last Spain coach has declined to return to his old job as sporting director of the Federation in order to look for new horizons and new professional challenges.”

Hierro was named sporting director for the second time in 2017 but was unexpectedly catapulted into the role of national team coach the day before the World Cup began when Julen Lopetegui was sacked after agreeing to join Real Madrid.
