Real Madrid could sack Lopetegui if results don't improve says Essien

Ramos previously said it would be "crazy" to dismiss the coach, who was sacked by Spain after his Madrid appointment was announced shortly before the World Cup. Whether Lopetegui is the main culprit or not, the optics of the last few weeks have been far from pretty.

Marcelo pulled one back with 18 minutes left and substitute Karim Benzema then hit the post with a 20-yard shot, but there was to be no late equaliser and Madrid are five games without a win for the first time in 10 seasons.

"Right now that (his position) is the last thing that I'm thinking about", Lopetegui told reporters.

"I feel more encouraged than ever to continue because the team gave their heart and soul on the pitch".

"We have to hold our heads high to come back to winning games".

"The dressing room was sad but the players are keen to lift themselves up and look to the next game".

Lopetegui is himself frustrated with the White as well after lack of transfer activities during the summer and most importantly the failure to replace Cristiano Ronaldo.

Real are fifth in the La Liga standings, three points behind leaders Alaves. The ball didn't want to go in.

Subsequently, they have suffered a 3-0 loss to Sevilla in La Liga, were held scoreless by Atletico Madrid in their derby and were stunningly defeated 1-0 by Alaves in the Primera Division immediately before the worldwide break.

It's been a rough few months for Lopetegui. Additionally, they were the victims of a shock 1-0 defeat to CSKA Moscow in the Champions League.

It has now been reported by VAVEL's Mootaz Chehade that Julen Lopetegui is set to be sacked in the next 24 hours by Los Blancos.
