Del Bosque: I’m fortunate to lead the best Spanish team of all time
At the recent meeting of coaches who will participate in the 2013 Confederations Cup, Vicente del Bosque spoke with reporters about his joy of managing the current crop of players.
Confirming that his team will play at the Confederations Cup with maximum intensity, Del Bosque acknowledged how important the evolution of Spanish football had been in producing the golden generation that Del Bosque is so proud to lead.
“The Spanish clubs have been very important in the evolution of our football. There has been domination in Europe where we have had teams like Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico, Sevilla, Valencia, Villarreal doing so well. The players in these teams are those that have led us to get the European Championships and World Cup. We’re going to continue to have a high level of football in Spain for a very long time”.
Del Bosque’s side are favourites to claim the Confederations Cup, a title which has still eluded them and the Spanish coach admitted that the team would also play with a desire to try to win the title: “whether a friendly competition or official, we always want to have the best players. A Confederations Cup is important and we will try to our best”.
Today Del Bosque also discovered who his team will face at the tournament, to be held in Brazil next summer.
