Spain Sack Julen Loptegui 24 hours Before the Commencement of FIFA World Cup 2018
Just before the start of the FIFA World Cup 2018, The Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) President, Rubiales has officially announced the sacking of the head coach, Julen Lopetegui.
It comes in less than 24 hours after the Spaniard got announced as the head coach of Real Madrid CF.
The inside story: Six Real Madrid players in the Spanish national team were aware of the decision.
But one non-Madrid player started to notice the difference and Real Madrid were forced to announce in a rush before the dispute. As a result, Real Madrid announced it on Tuesday.
Some reports also suggest Spain captain Sergio Ramos played a significant role in the signing of Lopetegui as coach. Before the sacking, a meeting was held between the President and Ramos. There was a dispute between them, as Ramos talked in favour of the coach.
Press conference of Spain President:
“This is not a club, we came to win the World Cup, it hurts you, right, but swallow your pride and let us play. What has happened with Lopetegui has forced us to make this decision. He has done great things, but now we wish him luck for the future,”
“Negotiations with Real Madrid were done without the Federation’s knowledge. I don’t feel betrayed by Lopetegui, he’s done great here, but this is how it must go. e cannot stay on the sidelines of negotiation with an RFEF employee and find out five minutes before [the official announcement],”
“The federation’s values are set by the Federation. I wish the best for Julen.”
The videos have been made viral where Lopetegui had reportedly been in a heated debate with sporting director of Spanish Football, Fernando Hierro.
The debate was said to be regarding the decision of joining Real Madrid in the time of World Cup. The official confirmation has been made that Fernando Hierro, will be taking over for the FIFA World Cup 2018.
