New Real Madrid manager, Julen Lopetegui has finally spoken out since he was sacked as head coach of Spain national team.
While speaking for the first time after his sack, Julen who has already been hired by Real Madrid, admitted that he is disappointed to have been sent home from Russia early, but wishes his former colleagues all the best.
“I am very said, but wishing that we have a magnificent World Cup and that we win,” he told Cadena SER and COPE journalists at the airport in Krasondar, before boarding a flight for Madrid.
