Julen Lopetegui sacked as Spain coach

Julen Lopetegui sacked as Spain coach

Spain have sacked head coach Julen Lopetegui on the eve of the World Cup and just days after he was named as the new boss at Real Madrid. The Spanish FA's president Luis Rubiales having to fly back from a FIFA congress to where the Spain squad are based in Krasnodar.

"I admire and respect Lopetegui a lot. There's a way to act that needs to be fulfilled". There is a way of acting that must be fulfilled. To have the best coach very important.

Madrid might be reigning European champions, but this is a club that finished well off the pace in LaLiga and has been rocked by Zinedine Zidane's departure.

His resignation comes after Real Madrid unexpectedly announced on Tuesday that Lopetegui, who had only recently extended his contract with Spain, would take over as their coach next season.

The former Porto boss signed a three-year deal with the Galacticos with the intention of taking over once this month's tournament was completed. We wish him the greatest of luck.

"I don't know what I'm going to do".

A respectable goalkeeping career which featured appearances for the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Spain preceded Julen Lopetegui's foray into management. "That is fine by me".

However, replacing Benzema - a man with 56 Champions League goals - may not be an easy early task. I think for now, he wants to enjoy the rest, his family and loved ones.

The Spain players were keen for Lopetegui to stay on for the World Cup but he has been axed by the FA. Without his vote, South Africa had to wait another four years. But the values of the federation come first. Spain will play Portugal in Group B on Friday in Sochi. "We are left in a very difficult situation", he said. "As soon as we know something, we will communicate it". All this is a big blow, but we are training again this afternoon, will stick together and move forward. If not, you realise how bad this news could be, for some, and for others. He was credited with reviving a team that was on the decline after winning Euro 2008, the 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012. Lopetegui, while he has been with us, has done an impeccable job.

The France legend subsequently took the decision to step down, and a replacement has now been found, though expectations are unlikely to be any lower.

"Madrid announce that the Spanish national manager will be their new coach for three years once the World Cup is over".
