The Spanish Football Federation look set to offer the national team manager Vicente Del Bosque a new contract.

Del Bosque has been in charge of La Roja since 2008, when he replaced Luis Aragones in charge of the national team.

The former Real Madrid and Besiktas boss has enjoyed unrivalled success with the Spanish team, winning two European Championships and the World Cup in South Africa 2010.

Spain, currently ranked number one in the FIFA world rankings, currently hold the record for the most consecutive competitive matches unbeaten which has reached 29.

It has been reported that Del Bosque will be at the helm until the end of Euro 2016 if he were to pen his name to a two-year contract extension.

Jorge Perez, general secretary of the RFEF, is quoted by AS as saying: "We have not sought any alternative for the post of coach. Del Bosque will be with us until he wants and for as many years as he wants."

The 62-year-old was in charge at the Bernabeu between 1993 and 2003, winning two La Liga titles and two Champions League's.

The current boss has been in charge of more La Roja matches - 80 - then any other coach in Spain's history.

Del Bosque, who has 65 wins, eight draw and only seven losses, has reportedly stated: "I want to continue and will do whatever the Federation wants."
