Real Madrid have unveiled sacked Spanish head coach Julen Lopetegui as their new head coach.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez said that "nothing justifies" Spain sacking manager Julen Lopetegui on the eve of the World Cup in response to the La Liga club naming him as their new boss.
Lopetegui replaces departed french Coach Zineden Zidane.
Lopetegui insisted he acted in a "professional and honest" manner in accepting the Real job on Tuesday, only to be dismissed the following day.
Former Real Madrid defender Fernando Hiero is now the head coach of Spain.
