Spanish Coach sacked hours to World Cup
NEWS DIGEST – The Spanish Football Federation have confirmed the dismissal of coach, Julen Lopetegui just 24 hours before the World Cup begins.
The Spanish Football Association president, Luis Rubiales, was supposed to be at Fifa’s congress in Moscow on Wednesday but flew to Spain’s training base late on Tuesday night to deal with the matter.
“We have been forced to dispense with the national coach. We wish him the greatest of luck. The negotiations have occurred without any information to the Spanish FA and we were informed just five minutes before the press release. There’s a way to act that needs to be fulfilled.” said Rubiales.
