As widely expected, Real Madrid have announced the sacking of Julen Lopetegui.

 The club have also swiftly named Santiago Solari as the man taking Lopetegui’s place on the bench for the time being.

The Spanish giants confirmed the decision in an official club statement, citing that the quality in the squad and the results obtained so far this season are not in line with their expectations.

Further, it adds that Solari will take temporary charge for training on Tuesday, but it remains to be seen for how long he remains at the helm.

Madrid currently sit in ninth place in La Liga having lost as many games as they’ve won so far this season while conceding 14 goals in just 10 outings.
