Julen Lopetegui was presented as the new coach of Real Madrid in the presidential suite at the Bernabéu on Thursday afternoon.

Lopetegui presented as new Real Madrid coach


 Just a day after his shock sacking by Spain, for the way in which his signing at Madrid was handled.

After signing his three-year deal with the Spanish giants, Lopetegui gave an emotional speech to the assembled Real Madrid staff and former players along with reporters.

 Lopetegui focused in the first part of his speech on how proud he was to be signing for the club and how he would, in line with the clubs aspirations, aim to win everything. Only at the end of his speech did he mention the events of yesterday, saying:

Yesterday was, possibly since my mother died, the saddest day of my life, but today is the happiest day of my life.

 In the question and answer session with the journalists Lopetegui made it very clear that he felt that both Real Madrid and himself had done nothing wrong in the way they handled his move from Spain to the Bernabéu.

 He provoked laughter and applause when he said he wished Spanish FA president Rubiales had done things differently. Lopetegui repeated again and again the words "honesty", "transparency" and "loyalty".

 The new Real Madrid coach said that the announcement that he was signing for the club had made no impact on the Spain squad, and in fact they had had the best training session of the week after the players had been told.

 The one bright spot, Lopetegui said, was that he can now start working earlier than expected for Madrid, and that tomorrow he would be at the Valdebebas training ground getting stuck into his new job.
