Former Spain manager Fernando Hierro, revealed that he was offered a contract extension until Qatar 2022 but he ended up rejecting it.The whole deal with Spain and Fernando Hierro during the 2018 World Cup in Russia was nothing short of surreal, he took the hot seat right after Julen Lopetegui got sacked and attempted to right the ship during the competition with little luck.Despite the evident poor performance by the Spanish national team during the competition after getting eliminated by the tournament hosts, Fernando Hierro revealed that he even got offered a contract extension to continue managing the squad until the next World Cup.The former manager recently offered an interview to ‘O11CE Metros’ magazine, where he revealed several details of his whole experience and also how the whole new contract offer took place.“I just turned 50 years old and I have never seen anything like it in my life, to live a situation of such magnitude just three days before the start of a World Cup,” said Hierro in a fragment of the interview picked up by Mundo Derpotivo.“My commitment and honesty took me to take the job as the manager. I understood that I had to do it then, my conscience is clear.”“I actually had a contract until the Qatar World Cup and I still think that the best solution was to step aside, for me and everyone else.”“I decided that I needed to give a chance to the younger generation. We have amazing players and manager, which is the case of Luis Enrique, who is a wonderful national team manager.”Quiz: How much do you know about David Villa?

Popular on Variety Verizon’s Oath struck a deal with Roku to distribute live and on-demand content from Yahoo and other media properties on the device maker’s free-to-watch Roku Channel.None of the Oath programming will be exclusively available on the Roku Channel. That will also continue to be available for free on Oath’s owned-and-operated sites and apps. Through the deal, Oath wants to get its ad-supported content in front of Roku’s installed base of users, which was about 22 million as of the end of June 2018.Presented under the “Yahoo” banner on the Roku Channel, the live and VOD content comes from Oath’s Yahoo News, Yahoo Finance, Yahoo Sports, HuffPost, RYOT and MAKERS.Oath has been losing steam in recent quarters — and Verizon hopes its video initiatives like the new deal with Roku will help turn things around. Revenue for Oath dropped 6.9% in the third quarter of 2018, to $1.8 billion, with Verizon blaming declines in search and desktop traffic. The telco said it expects sales at Oath, which combined AOL and Yahoo, to be “relatively flat in the near term.”
