Julen Lopetegui has been sacked from the managerial post of Real Madrid after the huge defeat against Barcelona with a margin of 5-1 just two days ago. The head coach of Castilla, Santiago Solari will take the charge of the Los Blancos as the interim manager till the International Break.
Real Madrid’s official statement about the sacking of their manager after just 10 matches in La Liga :
‘The Board of Directors of Real Madrid CF, meeting today October 29, 2018, has agreed to terminate the contract that linked coach Julen Lopetegui with the club.
‘This decision, adopted from the highest level of responsibility, aims to change the dynamics of the first team, when all the objectives of this season are still achievable.Advertisement
‘The Board of Directors understands that there is a great disproportion between the quality of the staff of Real Madrid, which has 8 players nominated for the next Golden Ball, something unprecedented in the history of the club, and the results obtained to date.
‘The club thanks Julen Lopetegui and all his technical team for their effort and work and wishes them the best in their professional career.
‘It will be provisionally replaced by Santiago Solari, who will lead the first team starting tomorrow, Tuesday.’
Julen Lopetegui did not tell anything harsh about the club management of Real Madrid rather he wished all the best to the players for the rest of the season. He told,
“After the decision taken by the Real Madrid board of directors, I want to thank the club for the opportunity they gave me,”
“Thank you to the players for their effort and their work, as well as to each and every one of the club’s employees, for their good treatment during this time.
“And, of course my gratitude to the fans for their backing. I send them my best wishes for the rest of the season.”
Antonio Conte and Roberto Martinez are the prime target of the club management of Real Madrid to the new manager of the club. But the things can not be sorted overnight in the middle of a season. Therefore, Santiago Solari is appointed as the interim manager of the club and the management will now have some time to finalize the new permanent manager of Real Madrid.
