Spain boss Vicente del Bosque has moved quickly to rule himself out of the, soon-to-be, vacant managerial position at Real Madrid.
Del Bosque had been linked with the job after Madrid president Florentino Perez said that he would 'have a home at Real Madrid' if he was to leave the Spanish national team.
With current Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho leaving in the summer, the club are on the lookout for a successor.
But Del Bosque, who managed Madrid from 1999-2003, insists he's focusing on managing the Spanish national side.
Speaking to Eurosport he said: "I don't intend to work for Real Madrid again, or for any other club. I appreciate what he said, but I'm fully focused on the national team."
The Spanish boss also questions Madrid's handling of Iker Casillas, the captain of Del Bosque's Spanish team. Casillas has barely featured for Real Madrid in 2013 but Del Bosque gave his support to the goalkeeper.
"It's been painful to see what Iker Casillas has gone through. I put myself in his shoes and I think he must have thought: 'Why is this happening to me?'
"His record is second-to-none. I've stood by him because he's a major asset for the national team, but I've never sought to meddle in the Real Madrid coach's decisions", Del Bosque continued.
The 62-year old Spanish manager also had something to say on new Barcelona signing, and Real Madrid target, Neymar.
He described the Brazilian starlet as "something else" and that "he's an artist with a lot of ability. I think he'll do great."
