Porto have confirmed that they have appointed Julen Lopetegui as their new coach on a three-year deal. The 47-year old takes over at the Portuguese club, who parted company with Paulo Fonseca in March, after bringing an end to a four-year association with the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF).

Last week, Lopetegui announced his decision to step down as boss of Spain’s Under-21 national team. He piloted ‘La Rojita’ to victory in the 2013 Under-21 European Championships in Israel, two years after coaching the same generation of players – led by individuals such as Isco, David de Gea, Koke and Thiago Alcántara – to the Under-19 European title.

In his first coaching role outside of Spain, Lopetegui is charged with the challenge of improving Porto’s fortunes after a troubled, trophyless season for the 27-time Portuguese champions.
