Champions League winners Real Madrid have sacked head coach Julen Lopetegui following Sunday’s heavy defeat to Barcelona.
After agreeing to take charge at Real Madrid two days before the 2018 World Cup started, Julen Lopetegui has guided Los Blancos to just six wins in 14 outings in all competitions.
Real Madrid suffered a 5-1 defeat to utter rivals Barcelona in Clasico at Camp Nou, their four defeats in five games.
What’s more, Lopetegui’s side broke the club’s 116-year goal drought record (465 minutes) last week when they lost 2-1 to Levante.
Marcelo – who ended Real Madrid’s goal drought last week – alongside with Dani Ceballos, Sergio Ramos and co., all publicly offered their support for the former Spain manager.
Lopetegui, however, could not avoid the sack as Real Madrid now sit ninth in La Liga table – seven points behind leaders Barcelona.
