Spain sack Lopetegui!

The Spanish football federation have decided to sack Lopetegui, just a few days after he accepted to coach Real Madrid. Initially, it was agreed that Lopetegui would take over at Real after the World Cup. But Spain have decided to act now and fire the manager.

“We have decided to fire the coach”, said SFF president Luis Rubiales. “What we have achieved so far is in great part thanks to him, so we say thank you and wish him good luck”.

The move can possibly distress the Spanish national team and affect their World Cup performance.

The Spaniards were undefeated during Lopetegui’s tenure. In 20 matches, Spain won 14 times and drew only 6 times.

La Roja begin their World Cup journey this Friday against Portugal.
