The news that Spain have sacked Julen Lopetegui on the eve of the World Cup came as a MASSIVE shock.

But, it turns out agreeing to become the manager of another team, just three days before the World Cup, whilst still under contract is a sackable offence. Who knew?

Spain have since placed Fernando Hierro in charge for the World Cup, but there was one man who many hoped would be given the job…

The 2018 World Cup already promises to be a fantastic tournament, but wouldn’t it be just that little bit more exciting if Big Sam was standing on the touchline?

Please, Spanish Football Federation, bin off Hierro and make it happen!
