Spain: 'Crazy' - Madrid residents react to shock change of WC Spanish coach

Spain, Madrid
June 13, 2018 at 18:43 GMT -00:00 · Published

Madrid residents gave their opinion on Julen Lopetegui’s sacking from his position as Spanish national team coach and the decision to replace him with former Real Madrid legend Fernando Hierro.

“Honestly, I believe Hierro is better for Spain, because he was a player in the team in the past”, said Marcelo.

According to one local, Luis, “I really think it's crazy, they should have waited until the end of the World Cup for all this”.

“I think the way Lopetegui has joined Real Madrid is not a good way, he should have waited a little bit, for sure, because this affects the players”, added another passerby, Roberto.

Spanish Football Federation President Luis Rubiales, who made the announcement on Wednesday in Krasnodar, later said Fernando Hierro would replace Lopetegui as the coach for Spain’s match against Portugal in Sochi on Friday.

Los residentes de Madrid compartieron sus opiniones sobre el cese de Julen Lopetegui que ya no es seleccionador español. La leyenda del Real Madrid, Fernando Hierro, es el nuevo seleccionador.

"Creo que Hierro es mejor para España", dijo Marcelo. Según otro residente local, Luis, "es una locura, deberían haber esperado hasta el final de la Copa del Mundo". "Creo que la forma en que Lopetegui se ha unido al Real Madrid no es una buena manera, debería haber esperado un poco, sin dudas, porque esto afecta a los jugadores", agregó otro madrileño, Roberto.
