◼️ The Football Federation of Spain released the news after it was announced that the strategist would take the reins of Real Madrid
The Spanish coach, Julen Lopetegui, was dismissed from his post on Wednesday, after the announcement on Tuesday that he will be the next coach of Real Madrid, announced the president of the Royal Spanish Football Federation, Luis Rubiales, just one day after start the Russia World Cup 2018.
“I appear to communicate that we have been forced to do without the national coach,” he said at a press conference in Krasnodar, the president of the Royal Spanish Federation of Football (RFEF), who appeared with a very serious face.
Rubiales praised, however, the dismissed coach stating that the qualification for the World Cup and the latest success of the Red has “been largely for their good work and we must wish the best of luck and know that what the national team gets from now on it will have a lot to do with the work that has been developed. “
But, the president of the RFEF didn’t like the ways in which the hiring of Lopetegui by Real Madrid has been gestated, “finding out with one or two calls to five minutes of the communication (of Real Madrid)” of what was going to happen.
The white team surprised on Tuesday by announcing that Lopetegui “will be the coach of the first team for the next three seasons”, unleashing a storm in the bosom of the Red.
Real Madrid, which will pay the clause of rescission of two million euros, had specified that Lopetegui, newly renewed as national coach three weeks ago until 2020, would join after the World Cup in Russia, but the RFEF decided on Wednesday to dismiss the coach.
“While he has been under the discipline of the RFEF, Julen has worked phenomenally, but the way in which all this has taken place has forced us to make this decision,” Rubiales added.
