According to the latest information from todofichajes, last week, Julen Lopetegui ate in Madrid with a manager from Villarreal, so everything indicates that it would be the former Real Madrid and Sevilla player, among others, who will take the reins of the Castellón team after announce the goodbye of Quique Setién.
With a squad to fight to be in Europe, Setién had not hit the key at this start of the course. Without being a preferential option for the board, he gained continuity after signing a great season last year, putting the team in Europe after taking it after Emery’s stampede. Now, the results and the availability of the Basque coach have sent him home.
Lopetegui wanted to return to LaLiga, as we anticipated weeks ago, and he was even considered as an option to replace Luis De La Fuente as coach, but Villarreal’s offer came before him. After not wanting to continue in the Wolves for not forming a guaranteed squad, the yellow club gives him a high-class team to try to make history.
In the absence of more information, Julen is on pole to be the next submarine technician.
