The Spanish Football authority has announced the immediate Sacking of Coach Julen Lopetegui.
Spanish Football Association president, Luis Rubiales, was supposed to be at Fifa’s congress in Moscow on Wednesday but flew to Spain’s training base late on Tuesday night to deal with the matter.
“We have decided to fire the national coach. What we have achieved in getting here is due in great part to him, and we must thank him and wish him luck.
The Spanish national team is the team of all the Spaniards. We only found out just five minutes before that he was leaving for Madrid.
“There is a way that you must act, Julen has worked in a great way with the team, but we cannot accept how he has acted in this case.”
