The Spanish FA (RFEF) and President Luis Rubiales are set to be in a rush against time, as they seek a fast and able replacament for the fired Julen Lopetegui .

Julen, fired early morning, had until his dismissal, maintained a near-perfect record with Spain in his 20 ties in-charge (14 wins, 6 draws),. With just over 24 hours to the 2018 FIFA World Cup kickoff, a replacement for the tactician is set to be named later in the day.

Front runners

After Real Madrid announced Julen as their new boss, their was reported tension in the Spanish camp, with rumours on who islikely to take over. Spain’s sporting director Fernando Hierro and the Spanish Under-21 coach Albert Celades have already emerged as front-runners for the job.

With Spanish FA boss Luis Rubiales announcing that 'we will touch the staff as little as possible', the two are certainly in frame to take over the job.

Other emergency options are Michael Laudrup,  Luis Enrique ,  Rafa Benitez and Vicente Del Bosque.
