Spain's manager sacked just one day before World Cup

Manchester United star David De Gea responds to Real Madrid transfer links

"The players know each other well and have done for many years, so at the end of day Lopetegui or no Lopetegui, Spain will not lose any of their class or quality".

Spain sacked coach Julen Lopetegui just two days before the team's opening game against Portugal at the World Cup, Spanish football federation chief Luis Rubiales confirmed on Wednesday.

But that's exactly what Spain has done by firing manager Julen Lopetegui on Wednesday, the day before the massively important tournament was scheduled to kick-off in Russian Federation.

Spain are giving serious thought to sacking their head coach Julen Lopetegui less than 24 hours until the start of the World Cup.

Luis Rubiales, the president of the Spanish Football Federation, reportedly found out about Lopetegui's decision just 15 minutes before Madrid's official club announcement, and chose to go in a different direction managerially.

"The coach, while he is a RFEF employee can not do things in this way". We only found out just five minutes before [the Real deal was made public] that he was leaving for Madrid.

"This will not change, and we will see the same old Spain, the one that wants to take the initiative".

He admitted to sinking deep enough into depression to "write the note" before seeking professional help. It is available every Monday through Friday between 6 p.m. and midnight in the Central time zone.

Spain manager Julen Lopetegui has been dismissed, the Spanish Football Federation announced Wednesday, with sporting director Fernando Hierro now set to lead the team in Russia.

"I do not feel betrayed".

Perez said Rubiales' reaction was "one of pride" and he "disrespected" Real. I trust a lot in the talent and mentality of this team and I am sure that they can go far and fight for the title. They will also have to try and negotiate their way out of a group containing Iran and Morocco if they are to reach the knockout stages of the competition. Rubiales believes Lopetegui has acted unprofessionally.

Rubiales added there were no hard feelings toward Lopetegui, who replaced Vicente del Bosque following Euro 2016. "We have been compelled to make this decision". We have a way of behaving that needs to be adhered to.

In the first reaction to the decision, former Spain forward Juanito said Rubiales' arguments had been impeccable. "If not, the national team won't happen", he admitted.

The Spanish were sensationally dumped out of the 2014 World Cup at the group stage having started as world champions, so they will have a point to prove in Russian Federation.
