If I had to point out Lopetegui's biggest problem as #RealMadrid manager, is that he sacrificed too much of his original possession + pressing game plan to not upset the existing dressing room hierarchy.

The team then devolved into a bad, Ronaldo-less copy of the Zidane system.
And when you see how strongly the dressing room leaders have supported Lopetegui (in the press room, not really on the pitch), you understand why he took that decision.

But a philosophy manager renouncing his philosophy often doesn't end well.
For example, Ceballos has been one of Real's most in-form players this season and an almost ideal fit for Julen's playing style. He should be a starter right now, yet he did not play a single minute of #ElClasico because Julen keeps choosing hierarchy over performance.
