Lopetegui Replaces Zidane As Real Madrid Coach

 Julen Lopetegui, Spain coach has been named as Real Madrid’s new coach.

Lopetegui will replace Zinedine Zidane at the end of the World Cup, after he reportedly agreed to a three-year contract with the European champions.

Zidane, who led the club to three successive Champions League titles, stepped down recently, saying the club needs “a different voice”.

Lopetegui previously managed Porto for two years, before taking over at the Spanish national team in July 2016. He helped Spain qualify for the World Cup, and would look to better their group stage exit in the 2014 edition.
