But Rubiales, the newly elected federation president, didn't like the timing of Madrid's surprise announcement on Tuesday that it had hired Lopetegui to coach the team after the World Cup and chose to take the drastic measure of firing the coach.
Hierro, who had a spell in charge of Real Oviedo in the 2016/17 season, steps in after a day of high drama in the Spanish squad, with Lopetegui and senior players all staging meetings with Spanish FA chief Luis Rubiales.
"The federation can not be left out of a negotiation by one of its workers and be informed five minutes before the press release", Rubiales said. "There is a way that you must act, Julen has worked in a great way with the team, but we can not accept how he has acted in this case".
Hierro continued: "When the president told me the possibility, I had three choices: to say no, another was to go and the third was to stay - to take a step forward for the Spanish federation and for Spanish football".
Former team captain Fernando Hierro, already in Russia as Sporting Director, has been directed to take over as coach for the tournament, the federation said on its website. Maybe this is tough now, but in the end it will make us stronger.
