The captain of Spain left the press conference when he was asked about Julen.
Ramos and the new coach Hierro were asked only about Lopetegui, something that was expected but still angered the captain so much.
“It looks like we are at a funeral – but we’re in the World Cup – a wonderful event.
“We have to move forward as soon as possible. Of course these last two days have not been beautiful since Julen was part of us. He has helped us a lot. But I think the Spanish team is more important than an individual.
“However, we trust Hierro. Even the staff is the same one. You will see the same Spain as you have always seen – a beautifully performing Spain – we will not lose the focus, “added Ramos among others.
