Spain sack coach one day to World Cup kick off

"We have chose to fire the national coach", Spanish Football Federation president, Luis Rubiales, said.

Compared to Spain's coaching chaos, the distractions created by Cristiano Ronaldo have become nearly meaningless for Portugal.

Lopetegui had signed a contract extension until 2020 just last month and never tasted defeat in his 20 games in charge as Spain boss.

Spain, one of the pre-tournament favourites, also face Morocco and Iran in their group in Russian Federation.

"Fernando Hierro will assume the position of national coach in the World Championship of Russia and will appear before the media accompanied by the president RFEF, Luis Rubiales", a statement from the Spanish Football Federation read. But the federation can not be left outside the negotiation of one of its employees, and find out just five minutes before a public announcement. "There's a way to act that needs to be fulfilled". We need to get back on track and stay mature in this moment.

"The players are completely determined to make a great World Cup".

Luis Rubiales, announced on Wednesday that coach Julen Lopetegui has been sacked, just two days before La Roja's Russian Federation 2018 debut. Rubiales ruminated on all this but there was something else: anger. Del Bosque had led La Roja to a almost unprecedented run of success, with its 2010 World Cup championship sandwiched between European titles in 2008 and 2012.

Lopetegui's forays into club management have been less successful.

"I am here to say that we feel obliged to sack the national team manager", said Rubiales. "He has simply made the decision for ethical reasons", writes Matallanas.

"If anyone can replace Zidane, then it's the coach who many Real Madrid players already trust, writes McTear".

The announcement initially claimed that the 51-year-old would take the reins at Santiago Bernabeu after the conclusion of the tournament, but La Roja have acted now after making the announcement at a press conference in Krasnodar. "We are the National Team, we represent a shield, colors, fans and a nation", he tweeted. "Our responsibility and commitment is to you".
