Spain manager Julen Lopetegui announced as Real coach

Spain manager Julen Lopetegui announced as Real coach”

Real Madrid announced Tuesday that Spain coach Julen Lopetegui will replace Zinedine Zidane as head coach after FIFA World Cup 2018.

Lopetegui returned to club management with Porto in 2014, but he was sacked midway through his second season after failing to deliver silverware, leaving the club in January 2016 with the club third in the league, and out of the Champions League.

Spain are the only team in Russian Federation who have remained undefeated from Euro 2016 to the World Cup.

But with three days before Spain's World Cup opener against Portugal in Sochi, Madrid announced that the Basque tactician will leave that position after agreeing a three-year contract with the La Liga giants.

A trusted youth coach, he has also managed Spain at Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, though he failed to win any silverware at FC Porto and was sacked.

But following the conclusion of the tournament in Russian Federation, which La Roja are considered one of the favourites to win, Lopetegui will transition into the role at Santiago Bernabeu.

He was sacked after just 10 games in charge, and after a spell away from management, he took up a coaching role with Real Madrid Castilla.

Lopetegui will have his work cut out at Real Madrid, where standards are high and patience tends to be short with managers unless they deliver instant success.

Real Madrid have announced that Spanish national team coach Julen Lopetegui will take over as their manager after the World Cup in Russian Federation.
