I don't think their decision is that mad at all. What a massive bellend.

Think how massive player power is when it comes to job security at Real Madrid, yeah you'd probably expect him to act professionally until the end of the World Cup, but he's already acted unprofessionally with the way he's got and announced the job.

Can't blame the FA one iota. You can't allow people to act how they want just because it's a few days before the World Cup. He tried to have his cake and eat it, so they whipped the rug from under his feet. Hope he gets sacked within a few months at Real, that'll learn him.

Assuming there's something massive i'm missing here but i don't get the outrage to be honest

I don't get how he's 'acting how he wants' or what it being a few days before the world cup has to do with it. He's taken a massive job that begins after the tournament, didn't Conte take the Chelsea job while Italy manager and Van Gaal do the same while Holland manager?

He's still managing the national side regardless of the Real job

Doesn’t make sense to myself

Originally when I heard he got the job , I though Madrid had cleared it with the FA

SSN

Saying he had agreed to sign for Madrid after World Cup

Just seems strange if he has already signed as Manager for Madrid and not accepted the job but to sign after World Cup when he resigns as spainisg coach

Didn’t think you could sign for a Club while managing your country without some agreement

Not sure of FIFA rules but the new head of the Spanish FA's not to be messed with:


Guillem Balague@GuillemBalague

Key -the personality of Rubiales and his promises during campaign that made him president of the federation a month ago. He promised a clean Federation, he is strong, determined and feels that things don’t get done “getting a call or two only five minutes” before RM announcement

“With time this decision will makes us strong,” Rubiales said. I know what he is saying. He wants a strong Federation where Real Madrid, Barcelona or whoever does not treat them like a little weak brother.

Ahh i see, didn't realise he hadn't discussed it with them at all. In that case that makes sense

Just amateur from him to be honest and sums up Real Madrid, as if anyone needs more reason to hate them and the way they act :lmao

The whole thing smacks of contempt from Real and shows a complete lack of pride and respect in the national side and, to a point, the nation.

They should have had a private dinner, agreed to keep it under wraps until after the WC and just got on with their respective summers, keeping in private contact over transfers etc and then announced it post-WC.

Whatever happened to Spain in the competition would have given him an excuse to leave - a bad performance, and he gives it the full Mea Culpa and resigns, a win or a brave loss in the latter stages and he gives it the full 'I have given it my all' and no one begrudges him leaving.

So somehow he's managed to pick the absolute worst option available to him. So congratulations to him on that.

That’s Madrid’s .

How could they think their new manager could coach Barca players with them knowing he was The next Madrid coach

Wouldn't surprise me if Madrid's usual media sources start to blame Lopetegui for blabbing. If they get knocked out in embarrassing fashion, the knives will come out. It's a no-win situation

So who manages Spain in World Cup?

From the Guardian -

"Asked who would be taking over, he [Rubiales] added: “We are going to touch as little as possible. We are working on it. When we know we will tell you. I have spoken with the players and I can guarantee they will do everything, along with the new coach, to take the team as far as possible. To win is very important, to have the best coach very important, but above everything is acting in the right way. Maybe this is tough now, but in the end it will make us stronger.

“I took a plane, came back from Moscow, missed the vote on the next World Cup to be here. We had to react, I know that whatever I do I will be criticised, I accept that.”

Spain Under-21 manager Albert Celades, who is part of the coaching staff with the senior squad in Russia, and director of football Fernando Hierro are two of the possible replacements as head coach heading into the World Cup. Spain play their first Group B match against Portugal on Friday evening."

I suspect it will be one of the two they've mentioned.

The old Man Utd song, We do what we like, cos we are Man Utd, is taken to a whole new level by Rotten Madrid.

They don't even consider the National team when looking for a new Manager or player for that matter.

They should have made sure the Spanish FA were involved with the World Cup about to start.

A club that's rotten to the core.

We are so fortunate to have got another great manager. We had a great manager in Rafa and collectively we fucked it up. If we'd all stood behind him there's no way the club would have found it so easy to sack him. So please, let's not fuck it up again.
