Real Madrid announce Spain coach Lopetegui as Zidane replacement

12 June, 2018, 21:23 | Author: Heidi Alvarez

The La Liga giants have dealt with Spurs owner Levy before, signing both Luka Modric and Gareth Bale from the north London club with the latter arriving for a then world record transfer fee.

"It has been surprising for everybody, but to be honest the three names who had been linked - Pochetitno, Jurgen Klopp and Antonio Conte - for different reasons they didn't fit the agenda", Balague said.

The Spain boss will take over at Santiago Bernabeu after the 2018 World Cup.

"Julen Lopetegui will join the club after Spain's participation in the World Cup, after two years leading the national team", the club's official website announced.

Real, who are now without a manager following Zinedine Zidane's shock departure earlier this month, are ready for a summer shake-up.

GOP Backs Canada After Trump Attack: 'A Reliable Ally, a Close Friend'
Trump's behavior at the G-7 summit was criticized by both Republican and Democratic lawmakers as being antagonistic of USA allies. The president also discussed the viral photo taken of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and others standing before him.


The France legend subsequently took the decision to step down, and a replacement has now been found, though expectations are unlikely to be any lower.

He'll now become the manager of a club for which he made one senior appearance and has worked as a B team coach in the past.

In addition, he remains something of an unknown quantity as a coach.

The 51-year-old replaced Vicente del Bosque at the helm of La Roja after the defending champions' disastrous 2014 World Cup title defence. That run includes a 3-0 victory at home to Italy (and a 1-1 draw away) in qualifying, plus a 6-1 thrashing of an Argentina side without Lionel Messi in March.

Guillem Balague says Julen Lopetegui's appointment as Real Madrid manager came as a surprise, but insists fans will be happy.
