"I will support this magnificent group of players".
Rubiales said the sacking could have been avoided if full discussions had taken place between the club and the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) before the news about Lopetegui's move to Madrid was made public.
Asked if he regretted the decision, he replied: "We're completely convinced what we have done is honest and clear".
Both Perez and the former manager of the Spanish national team made it clear that they do not understand the decision of the federation chief, which chose to remove Lopetegui as head of La Roja just days before the World Cup began, in response to the Basque's upcoming move to Los Blancos.
Warriors Willing To Give Kevin Durant Any Contract He Chooses
Will Barton - one of the most underrated players in the league, who might get squeezed in a tight free agent market. I want him to be happy and want him to know we want him as long as he wants to be here.
How have these two days been? "Real Madrid aspires to win everything and we will try", he said. Lopetegui said the day he was sacked as Spain coach was the "saddest" since the death of his mother as he was officially unveiled as Real's new manager.
The mess in the national team: "It's not up to us to put a measure on it. We have acted professionally and honestly". If someone wants to understand things another way, they can.
Oscar Tabarez leads two-time champion Uruguay into his fourth World Cup - most among all coaches in this year's tournament - and third in a row. "We tried to be transparent, I am very clear that I have been fully loyal, no doubts".
"I feel sorry for the manager because he was with the [Spain] team for the last two years and of course he deserves to be with the team. He qualified the national team to the World Cup in Russian Federation in a fantastic way - he did it unbeaten in 20 games as manager".
It's a World Cup.
Thiem waits an age as Nadal moves his bottles
Thiem was on the couch, watching on TV, in 2005, when Nadal earned his first Grand Slam trophy in Paris at age 19. The 24-year-old finally reached the Roland Garros showpiece after losing in the semi-finals in 2016 and 2017.
He described the day he was sacked as "the saddest day of my life since the death of my mother", and the 51-year-old former goalkeeper will surely find it hard to watch Friday's match.
Shortly after the news, it was announced their director of football and former Spain and Real Madrid captain Hierro would take the post for the duration of the tournament.
However, the players were "hurt" when they found out that Lopetegui had been negotiating with a club in the build-up to the finals.
"I wanted to give a press conference that day, but I had to wait because he was far away".
He said he was initially congratulated by federation president Luis Rubiales. "He is clearly the best in the world at Real Madrid".
