Espanyol keeper Diego Lopez takes aim at ex-Spain coach Del Bosque

Espanyol goalkeeper Diego Lopez has taken aim at former Spain coach Vicente del Bosque.

But he did at least offer an olive branch to Del Bosque in the hope of a possible reunion.

Talking to COPE, Lopez was forthright with his opinion.

"With Vicente I am very thankful because he called me up for the selection and for a year and a half it was great.

"Then during my time at Real Madrid, things went a little weird and there was a lack of understanding.

"I found that to be more of a personal issue than professional.

"I was No.1 at Real Madrid, I was doing well and it was normal I should be picked but Del Bosque prevented that happening."

Despite some harsh words, the custodian holds no grudge against the coach and would like to meet him to resolve their differences.

"I hope we can have lunch or dinner someday, clarify our positions and laugh at all this because what remains is that I am very grateful because he gave me my debut with Spain."
