Real Madrid Announce Zinedine Zidane's Replacement

Real Madrid Announce Zinedine Zidane's Replacement

The club have been linked with several names since Zidane's departure with the likes of Guti, Arsene Wenger and Mauricio Pochettino all talked about.

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

However, they have now made a decision to appoint Lopetegui, who signed a new two-year extension with the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) last month. They also scored 36 goals, and their form means they are one of the favourites ahead of the tournament in Russian Federation.

The announcement comes shortly after Lopetegui extended his contract as Spain coach until 2020 in a pre-World Cup boost for one of the tournament favourites.

A statement read: "Julen Lopetegui will be the coach of Real Madrid after the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation".

Villavicencio, the father of two little girls who were born in the United States, came to the USA a decade ago. He got married to Sandra Chica, a USA citizen, eight years ago and had filed an application for citizenship.

Zinedine Zidane walked away from his post at Real Madrid after the Champions League final, having won the competition three times in a row.

They face a World Cup group containing Iberian rivals Portugal, as well as Morocco and Iran.

It remains to be seen if he will head to Real as a World Cup victor, though Spain's squad is stocked with exciting talent.

He began coaching in 2003 as assistant manager to Spain's Under-17 team and was also in charge of the Under-19s, Under-20s and Under-21s, before moving to Porto.

The ex-Porto manager is also no stranger to Real, with three years spent at the Bernabeu between 1988 and 1991 during his playing days and a period coming in charge of Real's "B" squad between 2008 and 2009.
