Lopetegui was dismissed on Wednesday by Spanish football chiefs who were left furious after Real Madrid announced him as their next coach despite committing his future to Spain’s national team by signing a deal until 2020.

A statement by the President of Spanish Football Federation, SFF, Luis Rubiales says “We have been forced to dispense with the national coach. We wish you the greatest of luck. The negotiation has occurred without any information to the RFEF. Just five minutes before the press release. There’s a way to act that needs to be fulfilled”
