"The negotiations took place without any information to the Spanish FA and we were informed just five minutes before the press release", said Rubiales. We have encountered a difficulty that we are going to overcome, I am sure of it'. "It is a hard and painful situation, we would have liked to finish here with Julen at the top, but we have not determined the way we act". "It may look like a weakness now, but with time this will make us stronger".

Lopetegui and Rubiales were locked in talks amid rumours that the Spanish FA chief has made a decision to sack the coach who has guided Spain to the World Cup in Russian Federation, with senior players then believed to have become embroiled in the debate over what should happen next.

"There's a lot to do".

Former Spain defender Hierro's only previous senior coaching role was one season with Oviedo in the Spanish second division, although he was also assistant to Carlo Ancelotti at Real Madrid before that. Lopetegui had recently signed a new deal with Spain on May 22 extending his contract until 2020.

After consulting with management and former players, Rubiales believed that for the health of the team it was best to let the coach go.

"Next, he will direct his first training and on Friday he will debut in Sochi at the match of Spain against Portugal". "It wasn't an easy situation but I think he did the right thing".


"We have been forced to dispense with the national coach".

Fernando Hierro has called on the Spanish team to immediately move on from the shock departure of Julen Lopetegui, saying they have "no time to mourn" if they are to compete for the World Cup.

France Football: A surprise for everyone, Julen Lopetegui has been sacked as the manager of Spain two days before Spain start the World Cup.

A goalkeeper in his playing days, he has previously been involved with Real Madrid, moving from his native Basque country to play with Castilla in 1985 and even making one appearance for the first team. He is a top coach for me, which made the decision very hard.

"We want to thank Julen for all he's done and he's a big reason behind us being in Russian Federation, but we feel obliged to dispense with his services", he said.

"I would like my team to play well, to compete very well, with quality, possession play, score two or three goals more than the rivals", he said. Rubiales said that although the federation's financial situation was not ideal, money was "not the most important thing in a moment like this".
