Real Madrid have officially announced the appointment of former Barcelona goalkeeper as their new manager following Zinedine Zidane’s departure.

Julen Lopetegui, who has been also Madrid shot-stopper between 1988 and 1991, has agreed to replace Zidane signing a three-year deal.

Zidane, who won the three successive Champions League trophies as Real Madrid manager, stepped down May 31 just five days after winning the European trophy.

Lopetegui, who is currently managing the Spanish national team since July 2016, will take rein at Santiago Bernabeu after this summer’s World Cup.

The 51-year-old has previously managed a host of football teams including Real Madrid Castilla, Rayo Vallecano and Porto.
