: And, according to Santiago Iniguez, dean of IE Business School in Madrid, Spain's brilliant run throughout the tournament can largely be attributed to the management style of Vicente del Bosque.
"He's the archetypal cool, calm, cerebral type," says Iniguez.
"He believes that playing well is a result of a carefully developed plan. For him, strategy takes priority over passion. He rarely shouts or expresses his emotions and he very rarely accepts tributes, referring all congratulations to his players.
"He's probably a prime example of elegant, effective and collaborative leadership. And how can you argue with a leadership style that won the World Cup?"
