Real Madrid have appointed Spain manager Julen Lopetegui as their new head coach on a three‑year deal.

Zinedine Zidane, who led the club to three successive UEFA Champions League titles, stepped down last month, saying the club needs "a different voice".

Lopetegui previously managed Porto for two years, before taking over at the Spanish national team in July 2016.

The 51‑year‑old will take up the position after the FIFA World Cup, which begins at 3am this Friday with the Russia and Saudi Arabia match.
