Julen Lopetegui

Real Madrid have sacked their manager Julen Lopetegui after four and a half months in charge at the Santiago Bernabéu.

Julen’s fate was sealed after a crushing 5-1 El Clasico defeat by Barcelona on Sunday, making it their fifth loss in six games.

Announcing his sacking on Monday night, Real Madrid said:

This decision aims to change the dynamics of the first team, when all the objectives of this season are still achievable.

The Board of Directors understands that there is great disproportion between the quality of the staff of Real Madrid 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.

Real have failed to win in the league since beating Espanyol on September 22, losing to Sevilla, Alaves, Levante and drawing with Atletico Madrid, before Sunday’s 5-1 thrashing by Barcelona at the Nou Camp.

Julen Lopetegui took over from Zinedine Zidane, who stepped down following a record third consecutive Champions League title.
