Spain was a candidate to be consecrated in the World Cup.
Yes, it was. It is not anymore.
The dismissal of Julen Lopetegui, next coach of Real Madrid, will be his sentence. The coach left and took the hopes of a country.
The Spanish team continues to have the same players, but … And the process?
Two unbeaten years says a lot. Two years of preparation for the World Cup. And from night to morning, a new leader.
For some, logical. For me, unintelligible.
The Spanish Federation, Real Madrid, and Lopetegui himself handled the situation in the worst possible way. It’s like, seriously, I can’t think anything worse.
Two days before playing against Portugal!
However, the novel doesn’t end there. The substitute in the benches, Fernando Hierro, causes a lot of uncertainty.
Neither good or bad … You just don’t know what to think. He is a technician with only one season of experience and this was in the second division of Spain.
It’s comforting to know that he is a character linked to the national team, as well as a figure respected by the players. But will this be enough?
Tic, Toc, Tic, Toc …
One of the main characteristics of the world champions (or most of them) is the tranquility of the team.
Harmony, relaxation, security.
And it is clear that in Spain what is coming won’t be the color of roses.
If the selection ends up disappointing, everything will be Lopetegui fault, because you always have to look for a guilty one. But on the other hand, if Spain manages to lift the cup …
Forget it, it will not happen.
If only I had known this before putting together the pool!
Behind the future Spanish failure is the villain of this story. It’s not Thanos, but it’s almost as powerful as he is: Florentino Pérez.
He wants it, he has it. It’s something like an episode of “My Super Sweet Sixteen” on MTV.
I want Lopetegui … Two days before the World Cup. Boom!
The new Madrid project will be another story. Maybe they will be the winners at the end of the day.
Because yes, the losers – in addition to Italy – end up being the ones wearing red.
Spain, they say.
