Julen Lopetegui Named Real Madrid Head Coach After Zinedine Zidane’s Resignation

Real Madrid announced Tuesday that Spain coach Julen Lopetegui will replace Zinedine Zidane as head coach after FIFA World Cup 2018.

 

Lopetegui is in Russia 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.

The 51-year-old has signed a three-year deal with the European champions, per the Guardian.

Zidane’s resignation came as a big shock, as he had just led Real Madrid to a third consecutive UEFA Champions League triumph. However, Lopetegui’s appointment is another surprise from Los Blancos, particularly as he only signed a new deal to remain in charge of Spain until 2020 in May, per BBC Sport.
