Real Madrid to unveil Lopetegui as new coach

Real Madrid will present Julen Lopetegui as their new coach at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium on Thursday at 6 pm (1700 GMT), the Spanish giants said in a statement.

Spain’s football federation sacked Lopetegui as the country’s national team coach on Wednesday on the eve of the start of the World Cup, a day after Real announced they had hired him to replace Zinedine Zidane.
