Real Madrid announce Spain coach Lopetegui as Zidane replacement

Los Blancos have confirmed that Spain coach Julen Lopetegui will take over from next season.

Before he took over as Spain boss, Lopetegui was Porto manager for two years.

Lopetegui is now in Russian Federation preparing the Spanish squad for the World Cup.

But following the conclusion of the tournament in Russian Federation, which La Roja are considered one of the favourites to win, Lopetegui will transition into the role at Santiago Bernabeu.

Zidane shocked his team by announcing his departure from the Bernabeu weeks after he had guided Madrid to their third consecutive Champions League trophy, defeating Liverpool 3-1 in Ukraine and although Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino had been linked with the job, Madrid president Florentino Perez has plumped for Lopetegui.

Spain's national coach Julen Lopetegui will replace Zinedine Zidane as Real Madrid coach after the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

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

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.

Lopetegui has put together a record of 14 wins and six draws from his 20 games in charge of Spain, with the former goalkeeper having previously coached at Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 levels. That U21 side featured the likes of David De Gea, Thiago, Koke and Rodrigo Moreno, all of whom have made it into the Spain squad for this summer's World Cup.
