Ten quotes about Rubiales from Florentino Perez and Julen Lopetegui
15 June 2018, 01:08 | Rose Hansen
Speaking at his presentation to the media, an emotional Lopetegui said he made efforts to ensure the RFEF was informed of the agreement, which was meant to take him to Madrid after Spain'sWorld Cup campaign.
The Spanish football federation (RFEF) president Luis Rubiales, who was told of Lopetegui's new job five minutes before it was announced, said he had found himself in "a very hard situation".
"You can't turn back time but we're convinced that what we've done is honest and clear".
One of the pre-tournament favourites, Spain's World Cup hopes are now in disarray and, although Rubiales claimed the decision "will make us stronger", it is hard to see how La Roja can recover from such a blow just two days before their bow at Russian Federation 2018.
How have these two days been?
Perez referred to Lopetegui's arrival as "an act we wanted to have after the World Cup", saying: "Sadly some circumstances mean that we are here now with some excitement for the new stage of Real Madrid".
Lopetegui said it would have been "bad" to hide his appointment from the Spain squad, adding "the players took it well". Lopetegui was unbeaten in his 20 matches in charge of the national team.
"We welcome someone who knows this club very well and in the last few years he has shown what a magnificent professional he is".
A former Madrid Castilla [youth team] player and coach, Lopetegui was a goalkeeper who played just one game for the senior Blancos side, before later representing Rayo Vallecano, Logrones and Barcelona.
"Julen you will get all support and I want to welcome you to your home, of Real Madrid".
Portugal won the 2016 European Championship, has 13 players from that team in Russian Federation, and looked much like that winning squad in a 3-0 preseason victory over Algeria. "We respect the champions but we have full confidence in the boys and what they have done in these last two years", said Hierro. "I came here aged 18 to play for Castilla, had the good fortune to experience what madridismo is, the values, the loyalty".
"Yesterday was the saddest day of my life, since the death of my mother, but this is the happiest day", he said. "We know how important he is, he is a constant danger", admitted Ramos of his Real Madrid colleague.
