International Edition By: Uche Duru | 14/06/2018
Spain legend Xavi reprimanded the planning of Julen Lopetegui being declared as Real Madrid manager. Lopetegui was stunningly sacked as Spain manager Wednesday, a day after it was uncovered he would be Zinedine Zidane's successor at Madrid. Xavi, a 133-time Spain international, was despondent with the planning of the declaration of Lopetegui's Madrid move. "I am not the person to talk about it [Lopetegui joining Madrid]," the Barcelona great told Radio Marca."It was not the most ideal or opportune moment."
