MADRID (AP) - Spain coach Vicente del Bosque says he intends to step down after the 2016 European Championship.

Del Bosque tells Spanish sports daily AS “my intention is to continue until France 2016 and then leave after.”

Del Bosque, under contract through 2016, led Spain to the 2010 World Cup title and helped it defend its European title two years later.

But the former Real Madrid coach earned his first critics following Spain’s early exit from this year’s World Cup and its first loss in qualifying in eight years last week at Slovakia.
