According to breaking reports, the decision of Lopetegui to agree a deal with European champions Real Madrid before Spain goes into a major tournament has angered the president of the federation.
RFEF president Luis Rubiales is thought to have expressed an intention of sacking Lopetegui last night. Only an intervention from other administrators salvaged the issue.
The RFEF is expected to hold a press conference this morning to announce the intention for the way forward. Sapin play their first game at the World Cup against neighbours, Portugal on Friday.
