The dangers that Lopetegui faces at Real Madrid


No one told him it was going to be easy, but surely Julen Lopetegui did not expect such a winding journey as Real Madrid‘s new coach.

It was always going to be tough joining after the reign of Zinedine Zidane and losing Cristiano Ronaldo but Lopetegui is stepping in to build something of his own.

However, only three months after taking over the role, he is in trouble. On the pitch, the team is in a crisis in terms of performance and results while off it, some of Lopetegui‘s decisions are being questioned.

Bad Results

Lopetegui‘s debut was poisoned by the European Super Cup

. Derby and title, an explosive mixture. And he lost it. What happens here is that the beginning already had a blemish and then more errors soon followed as Real Madrid have already lost matches in both LaLiga Santander and the Champions League. In the domestic league, Lopetegui mirrors the bad start of the teams from the 2017/18 season under Zidane but the defeat in Europe only adds fuel to the fire.
