la otra selección – Fernando Hierro

I really don’t think Fernando Hierro needs an introduction, nor do I have to tell who he is, so here is a very brief description of Hierro.

Fernando is currently the sporting director of the RFEF, a position he has held since late 2007.  Fernando is from Málaga, and is a former footballer – a central defender -, mostly at Real Madrid (1989-2003), as well as with the Spanish national team (1989-2002).  He captained both those teams, and won a variety of silverware with Madrid, including five Ligas and three Champions Leagues.  Interestingly enough, he was let go by Real Madrid at the same time that current Spain coach Vicente del Bosque was, and the two of them have reunited to bring success to Spain.

  1. I met him once, when he was still capitaining Real Madrid. The guy has an amazing personality. Left me pretty impressed. Humble and very much down to earth while respecting everyone.
