Spain manager to take over at Real Madrid after World Cup

Sidney Guerrero | 12 June, 2018, 23:26

Real Madrid have announced that Spanish national team coach Julen Lopetegui will take over as their manager after the World Cup in Russian Federation.

The club released a statement this afternoon to that effect which said: "Julen Lopetegui will be the coach of Real Madrid after the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation".

Real Madrid have announced that Spain boss Julen Lopetegui has been appointed as the club's new head coach.

He went on to coach Porto before succeeding Vicente del Bosque, who had overseen Spain's triumphs at the 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012 but had also been in charge for the disappointing group-stage exit at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

However, following the departure of Zidane - who left the club after lifting his third successive Champions League trophy - according to the Independent, Bale is now reconsidering his options and will wait to see who Florentino Perez appoints this summer.

Real Madrid's search for a manager to replace the departed Zinedine Zidane is over.

Freedom Planet Is Officially Coming To Nintendo Switch This Autumn
Nintendo's not fixing what isn't broken, and I suspect the loyal Nintendoites out there will appreciate them for it. That means we'll likely see new games announced for the year ahead, as well as new games announced for 2019, too.

The Spain coach had a long chat with Barcelona defender Gerard Pique on Tuesday morning as the players became aware his decision to step down after the World Cup.

Spain are the only team in Russian Federation who have remained undefeated from Euro 2016 to the World Cup. Again, far from ideal. At the very highest level, however, he is still somewhat untried.

Lopetegui's playing career included a spell at Real, although he made just one appearance and was mainly loaned out to Las Palmas.

Whatever did happen, the timing is unfortunate for La Roja as they aim for World Cup glory and also for Los Blancos in their building for the 2018-19 season, while question marks over the coach's suitability for such a top job also persist.

However, they have now chose to appoint Lopetegui, who is currently concentrating on managing Spain in Russian Federation.
