Guillem Balague: Why Spain sacked Julen Lopetegui before World Cup
Last Updated: 13/06/18 4:46pm

Spain's preparations for the World Cup have been thrown into disarray after they sacked head coach Julen Lopetegui just two days before their first match of the tournament against Portugal on Friday.

Spanish Football Federation president Luis Rubiales made the decision to remove Lopetegui after it was announced on Tuesday that he would be taking over at Real Madrid following the World Cup.

Rubiales was unhappy to have only been made aware of the news five minutes before the official announcement from Real Madrid.

But what was behind the process in sacking Lopetegui? What will it mean for Spain's chances in Russia? And what will his replacement Fernando Hierro bring? Sky Sports Spanish football expert Guillem Balague reveals all…

Why was the decision made?
"It's not so much a football story as a personal story, that's the fascinating thing about this. It's not a football decision. Lopetegui has been with the national side for two years, he has in his mind what the best XI should be, the federation has talked about a process for many years…but if you go with the process then you keep Lopetegui and Rubiales gives him a slap on the wrist and says you should not have done it that way.

"The problem is that Real Madrid or Lopetegui did not tell Rubiales until five minutes before the announcement, and that is not the way to do things with Rubiales. From that moment, Rubiales felt this could not happen and it's not the way to do things. He wants clear lines of what is right and wrong and he wants clear leadership at the top.

"A month ago, Rubiales said he wanted a clean federation, one that was strong, stronger than Real Madrid and Barcelona if necessary. Of course now he has had the opportunity to show that strength.

"On Friday, Real Madrid decided to go for Lopetegui. He left it all to his agent and once it was negotiated everything was decided on Monday, then on Tuesday everything gets announced and Rubiales finds out about it only five minutes before the announcement by Real Madrid. It's a situation that the federation and Rubiales says should not happen. He said the key is that this will make the federation stronger, but right now it makes Spain much weaker.

What do the players think?
"Last night there was a lot of talk within the camp and this morning there was a press conference which was delayed by an hour because there was a meeting between Rubiales and Lopetegui which Sergio Ramos and Fernando Hierro also joined. Quite clearly Ramos felt he had to defend Lopetegui, who is going to be his manager at Real Madrid. He was talking about the process and how it's been two years and decisions have been taken about who will play. Lopetegui had a clear idea of what he wanted to do.

"But Rubiales feels almost personal about this. I am not sure it's a great idea if you take it so personally. Of course it's something to discuss and argue but you hear most of the players saying 'we want Lopetegui to stay, it's been a two-year process. Yes this is a huge obstacle, how do we sort it out?'.

"One thing is leadership and another thing is to give orders. Leadership would have been a slap on the wrist and telling him you can't do that, but Rubiales sees things very black and white. I had experience with him when he was the head of the trade union of footballers and if he did not agree with you then you could feel the fire in your direction.

"The players wanted Lopetegui to stay, especially the Real Madrid players and especially Ramos. They defended Lopetegui's position, saying basically that in our situation it would be the same; if somebody like Real Madrid came in you cannot say no. Rubiales insisted 'sorry, this is not the way to do things'. It's a strong decision and it's based on the fact that he didn't know anything about the negotiations with Real Madrid.

"The thing that really upset Rubiales and made him furious is that he only found out about the decision five minutes before it was announced. But leadership would have been dealing with the situation and somehow making the federation win. If some of the players are telling you to keep the manager don't you have to listen and swallow your pride a little?

"The players were offering their support but Rubiales was saying 'no way, this is it, it's not just about the World Cup, it's about the future'. Whatever decision he took was going to be criticised."

What will it mean for Spain?
"Keeping Lopetegui would have left Spain weak anyway, because he cannot ask the players to forget everything and say it's all about the World Cup when he has been negotiating with Real Madrid. But now it leaves Spain headless.

"Players want everything to be calm and organised and with no doubts, they want to go to a World Cup just thinking about the games. There were little bits with Spain, little debates after the friendlies, like do we use a No 9, do we use David Silva on the right or left, if Sergio Busquets needs someone next to him and if he gets injured who replaces him…those now don't seem like very important decisions but will have a huge impact on how the team performs.

"Lopetegui was a clear defender of Diego Costa to be the No 9. Now will whoever replaces him go with no striker or with Iago Aspas? That changes everything and the dynamic is affected, there is no doubt about that."

What next?
"Fernando Hierro was absolutely crucial at the 2010 World Cup when Spain lost to Switzerland in their first game. He was director of football at the federation and he was the one calming everybody down and saying it's just one game, there is still the opportunity to progress if we keep doing what we have been doing. He was the calm force of that camp. He has the respect of everybody and he was there and was part of the talk with Rubiales and Sergio Ramos and Lopetegui.

"You won't see many changes in terms of the style but big decisions will have to be taken. Who plays with Busquets? Who plays as No 9 and where do you place Silva?

"It's a strong team with strong personalities. It's just two days before the Portugal game which doesn't make life easy but I don't think in the short term it will have too much of an effect and if Spain keep winning then it could help resolve any doubts. Now the focus is on the players to sort the situation which they haven't caused."

【now.com體育】周三被西班牙怒炒後,教練盧柏迪古坦言十分傷心。

盧柏迪古(Julen Lopetegui)首度開腔談及丟掉帥位時說:「我非常傷心,不過仍然祝願我們可以踢出一個出色的世界盃,最終捧盃而回。我們有一支很好的球隊,希望能夠成為世界盃冠軍。」

皇家馬德里在周二宣佈,盧柏迪古在世界盃後將會頂替已離隊的施丹執教;此舉令西班牙足總大怒,就算國家隊在周五就要於決賽周分組賽首戰硬撼葡萄牙,仍然在周三辭退盧帥,任命體育總監希亞路接手。

51歲的盧柏迪古在2016年出任西班牙教練,至今從未輸掉任何一場比賽,領軍20場錄得14勝6和,勝率高達70%,而且合共轟入61球,只失13球。

【now.com體育】一如較早前報道,剛離任的西班牙主帥盧柏迪古將於今晚以皇家馬德里教練身份會傳媒。

《馬卡報》早前指,盧柏迪古(Julen Lopetegui)於周三被辭退後,隨即在西班牙時間下午5時正聯同自己的教練團隊,由克拉斯諾達爾飛赴莫斯科,然後轉飛西班牙,而他於周四清晨5時許已到達馬德里機場。皇馬社交網絡亦有交代此事。

皇家馬德里發表聲明指,會方將於今晚7時在班拿貝召開記者會,相信連當事人也沒料到,短短不足兩天見傳媒,已經是不同身份。

盧柏迪古離開俄羅斯時,表示很傷心未能領狂牛出戰決賽周,而他與個別西班牙國腳道別時的話,是「贏世界盃,讓它令你更強大」。

西甲豪門皇家馬德里周四正式介紹新帥盧比迪古,銀河艦隊會長佩雷斯在活動上狠批西班牙足總,指他們因為皇馬與原西班牙主帥盧比迪古達成協議,就在世界盃開始前將後者解僱,是荒唐怪誕的反應。

皇馬周二公佈盧比迪古將會在世盃後接手銀河艦隊,但西班牙足總主席盧比艾利斯認為自己一直被蒙在鼓裡,一日後將盧比迪古解僱。對於這宗易帥風波,皇馬會長佩雷斯自然力撐球隊新帥盧比迪古。他說:「盧比迪古如今不是仍在帶領西班牙這事,根本是無法解釋的。我們本希望在西班牙再贏得世盃後才舉行活動介紹盧比迪古,但連串事件令我們今天和大家見面。」
佩雷斯續道:「我們和盧比迪古達成協議後,希望展示透明度和避免外界的揣測,所以才告知西班牙足總主席,我們和盧比迪古的合約是合情合理的。但他們的反應卻是荒唐怪誕,也是只顧及自己的面子,這也傷害了皇馬的形象。」
