Julen Lopetegui Named Real Madrid Head Coach After Zinedine Zidane's Resignation

Before he took over as Spain boss, Lopetegui was Porto manager for two years.

'Real Madrid CF announces that Julen Lopetegui will coach the first team for the next three seasons.

The Spanish giants broke the news in a Tweet on Tuesday.

But following the conclusion of the tournament in Russian Federation, which La Roja are considered one of the favourites to win, Lopetegui will transition into the role at Santiago Bernabeu.

He will have a tough act to follow, after Zinedine Zidane won an unprecedented three Champions League titles in a row, as well as a La Liga title, two UEFA Super Cups and two FIFA World Club Cups during his two years in charge.

Julen Lopetegui will be the coach of Real Madrid after the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

The search to replace Zinedine Zidane, who left after guiding Real to a third-straight Champions League title, lasted nearly two weeks, with Mauricio Pochettino, Antonio Conte and Jurgen Klopp among the names reportedly in the frame. They also play Morocco and Iran in the group stages.

The France legend subsequently took the decision to step down, and a replacement has now been found, though expectations are unlikely to be any lower. Lopetegui spent part of his footballing career at Real Madrid, but only managed one senior appearance for the club. He then succeeded mentor Vicente Del Bosque in the Spain job following La Roja's early exit at Euro 2016.

He previously had a spell as manager of Porto, as well as with the Spanish national youth team set-up and at Real's B team.
