Julen Lopetegui Signs A Three Year Deal With Real Madrid

The head coach of the Spain National team, Julen Lopetegui, has been reported to have been sacked by the football federation, after reports had it that he has agreed to take over the managerial work at Real Madrid.

Lopetegui has signed a three-year deal to succeed Zinedine Zidane, as the head coach of the Champions League holder, but this did not go down well with the football federation.

The Guardian (UK) reports that the Spanish Football Association president, Luis Rubiales, was supposed to be at Fifa’s congress in Moscow on Wednesday but flew to Spain’s training base late on Tuesday night to deal with the matter.

We have been forced to dispense with the national coach. We wish him the greatest of luck,” said Rubiales.

“The negotiations have occurred without any information to the Spanish FA and we were informed just five minutes before the press release. There’s a way to act that needs to be fulfilled.

Spain will play their first Group B match against Portugal on Friday evening.
