Real Madrid announce Spain coach Julen Lopetegui as new manager

Zidane resigned as manager following an unprecedented era of success that saw Real win three consecutive Champions League titles, most recently defeating Liverpool 3-1 in Ukraine to complete the treble.

Real had been heavily linked with a number of potential managerial appointments following the shock resignation of Zinedine Zidane, including Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino and former Spurs and Porto manager Andre Villas-Boas.

"Julen Lopetegui will be the Real Madrid coach after the celebration of the 2018 World Cup", the Tweet said.

He was sacked after just 10 games in charge, and after a spell away from management, he took up a coaching role with Real Madrid Castilla.

Lopetegui is in Russian Federation with the Spain squad, where he will oversee their challenge but will then leave his post with the national team and take over at the Santiago Bernabeu, per Marca. He then succeeded mentor Vicente Del Bosque in the Spain job following La Roja's early exit at Euro 2016.

Lopetegui will take the reigns after coaching Spain in the World Cup, with the 51-year-old agreeing a three-year deal with the La Liga side.

Lopetegui is now preparing to lead Spain at the World Cup but the 51-year-old will depart his role as national team coach at the end of the tournament.

Spain's senior side are unbeaten under Lopetegui, having won 14 and drawn six of their 20 matches and begin their World Cup campaign against Portugal on Friday.
