Are we witnessing the dying light of the Real Madrid supernova?
Spanish giants Real Madrid have switched their attention to Chelsea full-back Marcos Alonso after the Super Cup defeat.
However, Atletico Madrid have been the most resilient team in Europe for the best part of a decade, thanks largely to their manager Diego Simeone.
"It's true they have won a lot but we have to focus on the season without thinking about what has happened in the last few years", added Lopetegui.
Julen Lopetegui took over Real Madrid in the most unusual circumstances - and few would envy him because of it. The 18 year old arrives in a €45 million deal from Flamengo.

Gold and Satyameva Jayate collect Rs 45 crore on Independence Day release
Both the films that released on Independence Day managed to do well on the box office, after a lull of nearly a fortnight. Gold witnessed a significant dip in its collection on its second day, given that it was a working day.
Julen Lopetegui has replaced Zidane, having been fired from Spain's national team two days before their World Cup opener for having negotiated his contract with Madrid behind the back of the Spanish soccer federation.
"We learn something from every defeat".
Lopetegui, however, said the main thing on his mind was getting off to a strong start in the league as Madrid look to compensate for their disappointing last campaign, when they finished 17 points behind champions Barcelona and below Atletico Madrid.
Into extra time they went, and Atletico went ahead again in the 98th minute, Thomas Partey pressing to win back possession before holding up a cross for Saul to thump a superb left-foot volley past Keylor Navas from 17 yards.
Real's only signings have been defender Alvaro Odriozola, goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and Brazilian teenager Vinicius Jr.
The striker said, "I already told Cholo that if he wanted to win titles he had to sign me".
