Viktoria Plzen v Real Madrid: Case for Solari appointment will grow

Viktoria Plzen v Real Madrid: Case for Solari appointment will grow

Real have won all three matches since Solari took over from Julen Lopetegui - including Wednesday 5-0 win in the Czech Republic - leading to speculation that his stay in the hotseat may not be temporary after all.

Real Madrid have two of the world's few best goalkeepers and choosing only one is a headache for every manager.

The holders are now in complete control of their own knockout-stage destiny, and the 30-year-old insists his focus is on the next winner's medal, as opposed to any achievement of his own.

"His way of looking at football, his way of managing the group, of being with the players, It's something I share, I said it before Real Madrid arrived, I keep saying it now that it's gone and I'll do it while I do not have another technician who does it better than him". I sometimes score and other times I don't. "For me the important thing always is winning". However, it's not just all about the goals, you've got to be a good footballer to be a good striker.


Since the departure of Lopetegui, Real have somewhat steadied the ship with the installation of former player and Castilla coach Santiago Solari, who has so far overseen victories against UD Melilla in the Copa del Rey and Valladolid over the weekend.

The Los Blancos side now have interim boss Santiago Solari in charge and appear to have revived their spirits, ending their win-less run in their 2-0 victory over Real Valladolid last weekend.

Real Madrid signed Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea in the summer after the Belgium worldwide had a sensational World Cup in Russian Federation with his national team.

'Why wouldn't we back Solari?
