Real Madrid confirm Julen Lopetegui as their new manager

Noah Ferguson | 12 June, 2018, 20:57

Lopetegui, who has coached the Spanish national team for the past two seasons, will coach Real for the next three seasons, the statement added.

The search to replace Zinedine Zidane, who left after guiding Real to a third-straight Champions League title, lasted nearly two weeks, with Mauricio Pochettino, Antonio Conte and Jurgen Klopp among the names reportedly in the frame.

"Real Madrid C.F. announce that Julen Lopetegui will be the coach of the first team during the next three seasons".

Lopetegui will take the reigns after coaching Spain in the World Cup, with the 51-year-old agreeing a three-year deal with the La Liga side.

In an official statement on the club's website, it was confirmed that the current Spain manager will replace Zinedine Zidane as first team coach after the tournament in Russian Federation.

The former goalkeeper made a sole league appearance for Madrid as a player and later turned out for rivals Barcelona.

"Julen Lopetegui will join the club after Spain's participation in the World Cup, after two years leading the national team".

Zidane's resignation came as a big shock, as he had just led Real Madrid to a third consecutive UEFA Champions League triumph.

He previously managed Porto and the Spanish underage teams. He then succeeded mentor Vicente Del Bosque in the Spain job following La Roja's early exit at Euro 2016.

Lopetegui's side qualified for the World Cup by topping their group with nine wins out of 10.
