Real Madrid sack head coach Julen Lopetegui

Champions League winners Real Madrid have sacked head coach Julen Lopetegui.

The 52-year-old succeeded Zinedine Zidane in June but the crushing 5-1 loss to Barcelona in El Clasico on Sunday was their fifth loss in six games.

Real, who are now ninth in La Liga, have 14 points from a possible 30, their worst start since 2001-02.

The club said he will be “provisionally replaced” by ex-player Santiago Solari, currently coach of B team Castilla.
