Vicente del Bosque

Spanish footballer

Vicente del Bosque González, 1st Marquess of Del Bosque (born 23 December 1950) is a Spanish retired football manager and former player. He is regarded as one of the greatest managers of all time and is to date the only football manager to have won the World Cup, the Champions League, the European Championship and the Intercontinental Cup.

Del Bosque coached Real Madrid from 1999 to 2003, which was one of the most successful periods in the club's modern era.

During his playing career, del Bosque made over 400 appearances for Real Madrid, winning five La Liga titles and four Copas del Rey. He played internationally with the senior Spain national team on 18 occasions.
