Vicente Del Bosque's signs new deal to lead Spain to 2014 World Cup


Vicente del Bosque, the Spain coach, said yesterday that he had signed a contract extension, after being offered a new two-year deal.

Del Bosque told a Spanish radio station he had "renewed" his deal with the Spanish federation but did not divulge the length of the agreement.

A two-year contract would enable him to lead Spain's World Cup defence in Brazil in 2014.
