Spain have made further changes to their coaching set-up by replacing Jose Molina with Albert Luque as their new sporting director.
La Roja announced head coach Luis Enrique’s departure earlier on Thursday, two days after losing to Morocco on penalties in the World Cup last 16.
Luis de la Fuente, who has had success at Under-19 and Under-21 level, as well as winning a silver medal at the Beijing Olympics last year, is set to take over next week.
Molina is the latest high-profile figure to leave his role, with the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) confirming he will not be renewing his contract in January 2023.
Luque will take up the position of sports director, while Francis Hernandez will work alongside the former Spain international.
Spain twice reached the Nations League Finals and the semi-finals of Euro 2020 during Molina’s four years in the job.
The 2010 world champions are next in action at the end of March with opening Euro 2024 qualifiers against Norway and Scotland.
