Real Madrid have officially announced that they will unveil new coach Julen Lopetegui this Thursday at 19:00 local time, 18:00 CET.

Lopetegui arrived in Spain on Wednesday night after being sacked by Spanish Football Federation President Luis Rubiales just two days ahead of Spain's debut in the FIFA World Cup.

Lopetegui signed a three year contract with Real Madrid after the surprising departure of Zinedine Zidane. It won't be easy for Lopetegui to replicate the success Zidane had but it's clear that he will surely try his very best. Isco will be expected to be one of the leaders of this new Real Madrid.

Lopetegui will start planning Madrid’s summer right after his presentation at the Bernabeu. This will be an important transfer window for Los Blancos as some important players are expected to leave while Los Blancos will also make some big signings.

Either way, it's clear that most questions will deal about his departure from the Spanish National Team.
