Spain head coach Vicente del Bosque has hit back at Real Madrid defender  Alvaro Arbeloa’s claim that he no longer interested in watching national side.

The Spanish International recently admitted he doesn’t care about the La Roja since his omission from World Cup 2014.

I don’t watch Spain matches,” he told Cadena COPE.

“I take the opportunity to unwind and be with my children and wife.

“I’ll watch the Euros, but I only watched the first half against Chile in the [2014] World Cup.

“I did everything I had to do [for a call-up] and was hurt by not going to Brazil, but now I’m super-happy not to be a part of the national team.

Commenting on Arbeloa’s claims, former Real Madrid manager said:

“From 2008 to 2016, there have been many changes,” the Coach told Estudio Estadio.

“The origin [of most of them] was the World Cup in Brazil, but then we had qualifying [for Euro 2016] and it didn’t go that badly as we picked up some decent results.

“We have a policy of continuity, which is very difficult to maintain. Never have we dropped below fifth place [in the FIFA world ranking]. We can’t be so pessimistic.

“I’m not alone in [Diego Costa’s] defence. Many people considered him as a top player and then came Aduriz, who is here on merit, not by popular acclaim.

“He’s always been very courteous and I like that.

“Both teams are parallel in the FIFA ranking. Even if I’ve made a decision on who will start, I won’t say it now.

“[On Alvaro Arbeloa], I like Arbeloa a lot, but I think his answer on the national team was inappropriate.

“[On Spain’s Euro group, the Czechs are the ones I worry about the most as we’ve won in Turkey and Croatia, but they’re all strong. All teams are well organised.”
