Lopetegui to replace Zidane at Real Madrid

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

Lopetegui took over Spain in July 2016 after Vicente del Bosque retired from the role.

The Spanish giants broke the news in a Tweet on Tuesday. They also scored 36 goals, and their form means they are one of the favourites ahead of the tournament in Russian Federation.

Julen Lopetegui will be the coach of Real Madrid after the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

The 51-year-old, who has been in charge of the national team for the past two years, has agreed a three-year contract at the Bernabeu.

"Real Madrid C.F. announce that Julen Lopetegui will be the coach of the first team during the next three seasons".

However, Tite had midfielder Fred left off the team after he hurt his right ankle in training on Thursday. The Brazilian figure dropped from 72 per cent in 2013, the year before the country hosted the World Cup.

They face a World Cup group containing Iberian rivals Portugal, as well as Morocco and Iran.

Julen Lopetegui will take over as Real Madrid manager after the World Cup, the Bernabéu have announced.

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.

A trusted youth coach, he has also managed Spain at Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, though he failed to win any silverware at FC Porto and was sacked.

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

Lopetegui, 51, was hired by Spain following their underwhelming Euro 2016 campaign and the former Porto boss has helped re-establish La Roja as genuine contenders this summer in Russian Federation.
