Hierro when asked if he’ll also join Real: Do you want to give Rubiales a heart attack?

Julen Lopetegui’s decision to join Real Madrid came as a shock to Spanish FA president Luis Rubiales, who responded by sacking the Basque and by appointing Fernando Hierro.

Asked during his introductory press conference if he could follow Lopetegui to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu as sporting director, Hierro responded humorously.

“What do you want, for the president to have another heart attack?” Hierro chuckled when one journalist asked him about the possibility of joining Los Blancos as sporting director.

There has also been a meme which has been shared joking that Florentino Perez was preparing to offer Hierro the sporting director role.
