Lopetegui out at Real Madrid after historic slide

La Liga Barcelona And Real Madrid Scrap For Revival As Clasico Looms

The former Spain boss replaced Zinedine Zidane in the summer but Real are fifth in the La Liga table after a awful start to the season.

The Madrid boss made five changes in a bid to end a run of four games without a win or a goal.

"I feel more encouraged than ever to continue because the team gave their heart and soul on the pitch".

"The dressing room was sad but the players are keen to lift themselves up and look to the next game".

It is understood that Madrid will look to promote Solari in the wake of Lopetegui's departure (much like Zinedine Zidane was bumped up after Rafa Benitez was axed) until June and consider offering him the managerial position full time based on results.

It's no secret Lopetegui is virtually guaranteed to suffer the same fate if he doesn't turn things around soon - but it appears he may already be out of time.

Lopetegui was sacked as Spain coach days before last summer's World Cup finals after it emerged he had agreed to take over at Real Madrid after the tournament, but he has endured a torrid few months at the Bernabeu.

While it was always going to take time to adjust for the loss of star player Cristiano Ronaldo, that alone is not the reason why Madrid has failed to put the ball in the back of the net.

On Sunday, Solari told reporters: 'We are all here to help the club and even more so in hard times, ' after watching the Madrid B-team he coaches pick up a point away in Vigo against Celta B.

The last Madrid goal came against Espanyol on September 22, scored by Marco Asensio, before Julen Lopetegui's struggling side drew blanks against Sevilla, Atletico Madrid, CSKA Moscow and Alaves.

It has been an unexpected and disappointing start to the season for Los Blancos.
