Spain's World Cup campaign descended into chaos just two days before their opening game with Portugal, as Lopetegui was sacked as a result of agreeing to join Real Madrid after the event.

Spain crashed out of the World Cup to Russian Federation at the last-16 stage after losing a penalty shoot-out.

The president of the Spanish football federation (RFEF) said on Monday "it is probable" that a new national team coach would be announced later in the day.

Fernando Hierro is to leave the Royal Spanish Football Federation after ruling out a return to his former role as sporting director.

A team with a history of success, a talented squad and a distinctive style of playing, had just failed to win a trophy for the first time in six years.

The former Real Madrid and Barcelona midfielder had been a target for Arsenal to replace former manager Arsene Wenger.

The 48 year old's contract would be for two years, taking them up to the Euros in 2020 that is due to be played at multiple venues around Europe.

Hierro had previously said he accepted responsibility for the team's failure to advance any further in the World Cup.

At the last count, Enrique has won La Liga silverware with both Real Madrid and Barcelona alongside the league, cup and Champion League treble as boss of the Nou Camp dwellers.

According a UK Sun report, the Real Madrid legend who took over the position just before the ongoing world Cup in Russian Federation, has also distanced himself from his former job as sports director.

"Luis Enrique comes with his staff, but he will speak about that topic next week".

Molina, 47, a former goalkeeper with Atletico Madrid, Deportivo La Coruna and Villarreal, earned nine Spain caps as a player.
