The Spanish Football Federation (SFF) president Luis Rubiales is currently holding a news conference where he confirmed the sack of the National team head coach.

He explains that the coach, Julen Lopetegui has been sacked and that the SFF only knew he was joining Real Madrid after the World Cup five minutes before it was announced he would join the Champions League winners.

“We have been forced to dispense with the national coach. We wish you the greatest of luck. The negotiation has occurred without any information to the RFEF. Just five minutes before the press release. There’s a way to act that needs to be fulfilled” said Rubiales.

Just yesterday, Real Madrid named the Spanish national team coach Julen Lopetegui as the next manager of the club following the departure of Zinedine Zidane.

The news came just weeks after Julen committed his future to Spain’s national team by signing a deal until 2020.
