A planned press conference with Rubiales and Lopetegui at Spain's World Cup base in Krasnodar was delayed an hour to 0930 GMT on Wednesday.

Real were stumped by their French manager who stepped down three days after their historic hat-trick of Champions League triumphs late last month.

"Madrid put its interests first, as did Lopetegui, and (Spanish federation president Luis) Rubiales was left in a very tough spot".

Lopetegui was unbeaten in his time in the Spain dugout, guiding his team to 14 wins and six draws from 20 matches, and he signed a new two-year contract to take him through to Euro 2020 in May.

Head of the Spanish FA, Luis Rubiales: said: 'Hierro told me he is ready to help Spain, he's been very generous, I want to thank him for that.

Spain's players, led by national team and Madrid captain Sergio Ramos, were reportedly in favour of Lopetegui staying on for the tournament.

"If it had been up to Julen it wouldn't have happened in this way and I wouldn't have found out five minutes beforehand".




"So I think everybody will be happy with it, but mostly because Real were surprised by the departure of Zidane and had to react as soon as possible".

Real Madrid's search for a manager to replace the departed Zinedine Zidane is over.

Either or both could now take charge of Friday evening's game in Sochi against Portugal.

The squad of players which sailed through qualifying and remain one of the pre-tournament favourites remained fully committed to the cause, Hierro said. "It is a hard and painful situation, we would have liked to finish here with Julen at the top, but we have not determined the way we act". Lopetegui has done impeccable work. "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 [at this World Cup]".

"Real Madrid look for a coach and look for the best".

"Julen has worked phenomenally well; I have nothing at all to complain about there. We all know what this means and our responsibilities". "We have been compelled to make this decision". I know there's going to be criticism whatever I do.

'I do not feel betrayed, the problem is how things have been done with the total absence of participation of the Spanish Football Federation, that is something we can not ignore, Lopetegui is an impeccable professional but the process is important. He is a top coach for me, which made the decision very hard.
