Vicente del Bosque has announced that he will stay on as Spain trainer beyond Euro 2012 as he has signed a contract renewal with the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF).
The 61-year-old's previous deal was set to expire after this summer's European tournament, but the coach will now remain in charge of La Furia Roja for several more years.
Del Boque did not disclose the length of his new contract, but the trainer is expected to stay on until after the 2014 World Cup.
"I have already renewed my contract as national team coach," said Del Bosque in an interview with Radio Marca.
The former Real Madrid boss took charge of Spain after Euro 2008, and guided them to victory at the 2010 World Cup.
La Furia Roja were drawn in Group C at Euro 2012, alongside Italy, Republic of Ireland and Croatia. They start the tournament with a match against the Italians on June 10.
