Florentino Perez will sack Madrid boss Julen Lopetegui on Monday
Julen Lopetegui will take charge of his final Real Madrid training session on Monday morning as Florentino Perez intends to sack him after an executive gathering which happens later in the day, around 19.00h.
After being hammered at Barcelona (5-1), Lopetegui will be supplanted by Italian mentor Antonio Conte, who has already overseen Chelsea, Juventus and the Italian national team.
The arrangement is for Conte to assume control at the earliest opportunity, yet it’s far-fetched everything will be set up from him to be in control for Wednesday’s Copa del Rey diversion at Melilla – so Castilla coach Solari is likely oversee that fixture.
If Lopetegui was already a « sporting corpse » before Barca-Madrid, after the Clasico plainly his time at the Santiago Bernabeu was up. Marca say he even said farewell to the players in the changing area at full-time.
Conte could be in charge for Saturday’s game against Real Valladolid. As indicated by AS, he will sever an occasion in Egypt to go to Madrid instantly.
