Real Madrid coach Lopetegui against La Liga games in US
Real Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui has criticised plans to hold a La Liga match in the United States, saying it undermines the competition, reports BBC Sport.
On Tuesday Barcelona, Girona and La Liga asked the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) for permission for the clubs to relocate a game to the US.
The fixture, Girona’s ‘home’ match, would be held at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium on 26 January at 19:45 GMT.
“I am not in favour of it happening,” former Spain manager Lopetegui said.
“It does not benefit the equality of the competition. All the teams should play in the same stadiums.”
