    Can't be good to plunge the side into disarray the day before. They have however now appointed Hierro. A legendary name who should command the instant respect of the players, so could steady the ship quite well.

    The right thing?? Sacking a manager on the eve of the world cup the right thing? Seemed very knee-jerk to me.

    Fair play to Spain! It may cost em, but as the authorities have said. Its about the lack of respect shown. I dont blame him, hed be a fool to refuse Madrid but come on. Announce it after the World Cup or at least speak to your employer beforehand.

    I felt it was more Real Madrid doing whatever they want when they want as usual, rather than the manager's fault himself. Regarding the timing of the announcement I mean.

    His managerial experience amounts to one season coaching a second division side who finished mid-table and mutually consented him at the end of the season. Mental appointment.

    I feel like it had to be someone already involved in coaching the side, otherwise it's someone coming in with a blank sheet, not knowing half the players and a world in 24 hours time. So their hands were a bit tied.

    He still had a discussion with Madrid and chose not to tell the federation. Even if he was instructed to by Madrid. He made his choice.
