Real Madrid appoint Solari until 202

Santiago Solari Real Madrid 2018-19

The former Real Madrid Castilla manager knows the lot well from his days with the youth setup of the Whites, but the way he has helped the younger players feel bask into form in the first team is wonderful.

Real Madrid have appointed Santiago Solari as the club's permanent manager until June 2021.

Santiago Solari coach of Real Madrid talks with Vinicius during a match between Real Madrid vs Valladolid for La Liga Española at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium on November 3, 2018 in Madrid, Spain.

Solari's appointment on an 18-month deal was confirmed on Tuesday after he won four games out of four in an interim spell in charge following Julen Lopetegui's sacking.

The upturn has left Madrid only four points adrift of league leaders Barcelona and on the brink of qualification for the last 16 in Europe.

Solari has already recorded victories as Real Madrid manager.

He was deemed surplus to requirements by Mourinho previous year and allowed to join Real Sociedad after a loan spell at Sunderland.

This was after the club's poor run of form culminated in a painful 5-1 El Clasico defeat by FC Barcelona.

"The truth is that we are very happy with him", Madrid director Emilio Butragueno told Movistar+.

But there is scepticism as to how long Solari will remain in the job with Mauricio Pochettino and Jose Mourinho both mooted as possible targets for the summer. It's a great opportunity.

Spanish rules state that an interim coach can not be in charge for more than two weeks so Madrid had to appoint Solari - or an alternative - to avoid punishment.

After the global break, Madrid´s generous run of games continues with league matches against Eibar, Valencia, Huesca, Rayo Vallecano and Villarreal before Christmas, none of whom now reside in La Liga´s top half.
