Fernando Hierro reappointed Spanish Football Association sporting director
The Spanish Football Association has re-appointed former Spain and Real Madrid defender Fernando Hierro as its sporting director.
Hierro held the post between 2007 and 2011, during which time the national team tasted victory at the 2008 European Championships and the World Cup two years later.
The Spanish FA (RFEF) announced his return on its official website on Thursday.
Hierro was the coach of Segunda Division Real Oviedo last season, but left the club by mutual consent in the summer.
