Spain sack Julen Lopetegui one day before World Cup

Real Madrid appoints Julen Lopetegui as coach for next three seasons

Luis Rubiales, announced on Wednesday that national soccer team coach Julen Lopetegui has been fired from his role, a day after the Real Madrid team announced it had signed him as its manager for the next season.

Lopetegui, unbeaten in 20 games as coach, winning 14 and drawing six, was sacked after being named as Real Madrid coach on Tuesday. "I have spoken to them and I can assure you that the players and the the new coaching staff will do everything possible to lead the team as far as possible [in Russia], but it's a complicated situation".

This news came after the Spanish Football Association sacked head coach Julian Lopetegui today after he was confirmed as the new boss of Real Madrid yesterday. It's safe to say though, that this certainly is a bad look on the coach, who didn't appear to be transparent in his intentions. "We are left in a very hard situation", he said.

"All of the Spanish coaches would like in the future to become national team manager".

Mara laughed out loud when asked what he said afterwards to trainer Bob Baffert . "After a week it starts catching up with them". The most recent horse to win both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness and lose at Belmont Park was California Chrome in 2014.

"We can not alter two years of hard work in the coming days - from now until the Portugal match, we don't have the ability to change much. We only found out just five minutes before that he was leaving for Madrid", he said. We are working on it.

Spain face Portugal on Friday, and will also face Iran and Morocco in Group B.

"I think [federation president Luis] Rubiales acted correctly and was looking out for the federation, which should be above any single individual", Hernandez told Marca.

"I am very said, but wishing that we have a magnificent World Cup and that we win".

Hierro, a former Real Madrid captain, refused to criticise his old club for their conduct, and admitted the chance to coach his country was an opportunity too good to turn down.

'You can't do things this way, two or three days before the World Cup.

"It is true that there is very little time to prepare, but the moment is here and we are clear about what we want to achieve", he said.
