Real Madrid Name Spain Coach Lopetegui As Zidane Successor

Spain manager Julen Lopetegui will take over as Real Madrid manager following the conclusion of the World Cup in Russian Federation, the club have confirmed.

Lopetegui is now in charge of the Spain national squad who are preparing for the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Lopetegui previously managed Porto for two years, before taking over at the Spanish national team in July 2016.

Gareth Bale will wait until Zinedine Zidane's successor has been named at Real Madrid before deciding on his future, according to reports.

Zidane's resignation came as a big shock, as he had just led Real Madrid to a third consecutive UEFA Champions League triumph.

And United supporters are concerned that new Madrid boss Lopetegui will use Spain's World Cup campaign as a chance to lure De Gea away from Old Trafford.

His decision to quit as Madrid coach suddenly left the Spanish giants in limbo.

Real Madrid were keen on appointing Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino, but were put off by the hefty fee they would have had to pay for the Argentine after he recently signed a five year contract.

He has done well through the levels with Spain, he is doing well now, and even though they have stuttered in some of the World Cup warm-up games, the football being played by Spain has been fantastic.

Time will tell, just as it did with Zidane, but right now, the appointment of Lopetegui looks like a risky one for both Madrid and Spain. Spain will face Iran and Morocco in Group B after the challenge of Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal in their opener on Friday.
