“ SPAIN SACK MANAGER ONE DAY BEFORE WORLD CUP “

BBC

13/06/18

Spain sacked head coach Julen Lopetegui after he was named the new Real Madrid boss - two days before their opening World Cup match against Portugal.

Real Madrid announced on Tuesday that Lopetegui would succeed Zinedine Zidane at the Bernabeu on a three-year-deal.

The Spanish football federation (RFEF) said it had dismissed the 51-year-old because the negotiation occurred "without any information to the RFEF".

The World Cup in Russia starts on Thursday.

"I know it's a very difficult situation. I know there's going to be criticism whatever I do," said RFEF president Luis Rubiales, who was told of Lopetegui's new role five minutes before it was announced.

"I'm sure this will, in time, make us stronger. I admire Julen very much, I respect him very much. He seems a top trainer and that makes it harder to make the decision.

"You can't do things this way, two or three days before the World Cup. We have been compelled to make this decision."

Lopetegui became Spain manager in 2016 following Vicente del Bosque's retirement, and remained unbeaten through his reign.

Spain won 14 of 20 games with Lopetegui in charge, drawing the remaining six.

Serves him right to go behind the Spanish FA.

Well done to the Spanish FA for doing the right thing

Surely would've made more sense to keep him for the World Cup then sack him after it. This might throw Spain off completely for the tournament

What a load of tosh they all knew 5 minutes before one of the biggest or biggest club in the world announced a manager that was their manager.

They knew way before that and took a rash decision to sack him because of bitterness.
I will.
And before anyone els gets in there no im not an ideot abroad

Most country's look for a new manager after tournaments or their contracts are up at the end of that event .

Managers are looking for a new job or keep their options open when the journey is over .

So why did Spain let this guy pick his players and then sack him for someone else to deal with it ???
