Real Madrid have sacked Head Coach, Julen Lopetegui after disappointing performance in the league .
Lopetegui sack is coming a day after Madrid were trashed 5-1 by arch-rival in the first El-Clasico of the season.
The coach was employed in the beginning of the season after a surprise resignation by Zinedine Zidane after guiding the team to consecutive Champions League trophies.
The Los Blancos are currently placed nine in the league.
A statement by the club stated that the decision was taken by the club to change the embarrassing results the team has been getting.
“The decision was taken in a bid to change the run of results that the team was in, with all the team’s season objectives still possible.”
Real Madrid Castilla coach and former player Santiago Solari will take charge of the team until a new Head Coach is appointed.
