Julen Lopetegui, the Spain head coach has been sacked this morning by the Spanish FA. He was sacked for not respecting his contract when he agreed to join Real Madrid as head coach after the world cup. Two days ago, Real Madrid named him as new manager following Zinedine Zidane departure.

The announcement came as a huge slap in the face to Luis Rubiales, the Spanish Football Federation president, who handed Lopetegui a new contract until after Euro 2020, but the coach’s decision to walk away from the national team as soon as the World Cup ends is a huge blow to his authority.
