Del Bosque extends Spain contract

BY foxsports • April 17, 2012

Spain coach Vicente del Bosque says he has signed a contract extension after having previously been offered a new two-year deal.

Del Bosque told Onda Cero radio on Tuesday he had ''renewed'' his deal with the Spanish federation but didn't divulge the length of the agreement. A two-year contract would enable him to lead Spain's World Cup defense in Brazil in 2014.

The coach's previous deal had been due to expire after the European champions defended their title in Poland and Ukraine from June 8 to July 1.

In squad news for Euro 2012, Del Bosque says he will wait until the last moment before deciding whether to include injured striker David Villa and that Fernando Torres' increased playing time at Chelsea bodes well for his chances.
