Reports: Spain Draw Up Three-Man Shortlist For Next Boss

Following Spain's shock elimination from the 2018 FIFA World Cup, the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) has reportedly drawn up a three-man shortlist for their vacant managerial post.

Click through the gallery above to see three candidates who are reportedly in line for the Spain job, according to Marca.

Real Madrid's Julen Lopetegui, who was sacked as La Furia Roja boss one day before the start of the showpiece in Russia, was replaced by Fernando Hierro at the last minute, a turn of events that seemingly proved costly for the former European Champions.

With Hierro set to return to his original role as director of football this week, the team is in need of a new coach, and it has been reported that president Luis Rubiales has already got certain candidates in mind.

According to Spanish publication Marca, the RFEF are looking at either Jose Miguel Gonzalez Martin del Campo – more famously known as Michel – Quique Sanchez Flores or Luis Enrique to take them forward.

In no rush to make an announcement, the federation is said to be looking for a manager who is young, available and, importantly, one of their own.

It has been suggested that former Watford coach Sanchez Flores is currently the frontrunner for the job because he has a lot of experience and is believed by some to be a coach capable of adapting to the reforms now needed in the national team.
