Where is Fernando Hierro now?

Many people in the game were surprised when Real Madrid legend Fernando Hierro signed for Bolton Wanderers .

He was persuaded by former team mates Steve McManaman and Ivan Campo.

Although he only spent one year at the club before finishing his playing career many of the Bolton faithful were appreciative of the fact that he always put in a shift and wasn’t just at that club for a last big payday.

In 2011, Hierro was back in football in his native Spain at Malaga when he was appointed as the club’s director of football.

Hierro held the post for a year before leaving due to the club’s financial difficulties, even though they finished the season in fourth place and qualified for the Champions League for the first time in their history.

In 2014 Fernando Hierro was back at Real Madrid replacing another club legend, Zinedine Zidane as assistant coach working alongside Carlo Ancelotti.

After Ancelotti was sacked in May 2015, Hierro was asked to stay on as a coach by new manager Rafael Benitez but refused the offer as he wanted to start a new career as a manager.

In June 2016, Fernando Hierro got his first taste of management when he was appointed head coach of Spanish Second Division side Real Oviedo.
