Los Blancos currently sit ninth in LaLiga after a lacklustre start to the season and so have disposed of the Spaniard after just 14 games in charge
Real Madrid have sacked their manager Julen Lopetegui and provisionally replaced him with reserve team boss Santiago Solari.
The Galacticos were beaten 5-1 by bitter rivals Barcelona on Sunday and have acted quickly to replace their boss following the latest result of their horrendous start to the 2018/19 season.
Real posted the following statement on their website: “The Board of Directors of Real Madrid CF, meeting today October 29, 2018, has agreed to terminate the contract that linked coach Julen Lopetegui with the club.
“This decision, adopted from the highest level of responsibility, aims to change the dynamics of the first team, when all the objectives of this season are still achievable.
“The Board of Directors understands that there is a great disproportion between the quality of the staff of Real Madrid, which has eight players nominated for the next Golden Ball, something unprecedented in the history of the club, and the results obtained to date.
“The club thanks Julen Lopetegui and all his technical team for their effort and work and wishes them the best in their professional career.
“It will be provisionally replaced by Santiago Solari, who will lead the first team starting tomorrow, Tuesday.”
