Football Fans in Shock After Spain Sack Julen Lopetegui on Eve of World Cup

Football fans are in shock this afternoon after Spain sacked Julen Lopetegui on the eve of the World Cup.

The Spanish manager was yesterday announced as the next Real Madrid boss, taking over from Zinedine Zidane from next season.

But apparently the Spanish FA aren’t happy with how that appointment was made and have taken the bold step of relieving Lopetegui of his duties just a day before the tournament kicks off in Russia.

Spain don’t get their tournament kicked off until Friday night, when they play Portugal – but it’s a shock move that is sure to have a big impact on the competition for their national team.

It’s fair to say Twitter is in disbelief that one of the pre-tournament favourites have got rid of their manager:

Now Spain will look for a new manager after Lopetegui’s departure – and whoever that is will have a huge job on settling the squad before as they aim for World Cup glory.
