Real Madrid Appoints New Manager To Replace Zidane

Real Madrid appointed Spanish coach Julen Lopetegui as their new head coach in a three-year deal, BBC Sports reported.

Lopetegui will now replace Zinedine
Zidane, who led the club to three successive titles in the Champions League, resigned in May, saying the club needs "a different voice."

Lopetegui previously managed Porto for two years, before taking over the Spanish national team in July 2016.

The 51-year-old will take the post after the World Cup, which begins on June 14.

A former goalkeeper, Lopetegui made a senior appearance for Real Madrid, but played 107 games for Logrones.

He began training in 2003 as assistant to the U-17 team in Spain.

He achieved Spain at the U-19, U-20 and U-21 levels before moving to Oporto.
