Several former players received their UEFA Pro coaching license, including Raul, Xavi, Julio Baptista, Victor Valdes, Xabi Alonso, and Esteban Cambiasso.

Jacinto Alonso, who is the head of the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF), looked forward to how the former players would contribute to the game as managers.

"We are convinced that you will know how to convey that feeling you made us feel when you showed us your football [ideas]," said Alonso.
