Solari handed Madrid role on permanent basis

Witsel backs Martinez for Real Madrid job

Witsel backs Martinez for Real Madrid job

Solari has shone as caretaker coach of Real since taking charge after the dismissal of Julen Lopetegui.

"Everything is in order".

It was a hotly contested tie in the Estadio Municipal de Balaídos which threatened to boil over, as Real Madrid came out on top against the Galician outfit.

Toni Kroos should have doubled Real Madrid's lead 13 minutes later when he was presented with nearly an open goal from a Benzema cross, but the Germany worldwide somehow missed the crossbar.

Real Madrid narrowed the gap on La Liga leaders Barcelona to four points with a hard-fought victory at Celta Vigo.

Lucas Vazquez has laughed off talk of a crisis at Real Madrid, with the supposedly out-of-sorts Blancos only four points adrift of Barcelona.

Real Madrid have had major scoring struggles since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer, and needed players to step up to replace his output, as the club purchased no direct replacement for him, instead relying on patchy players such as Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale, Marco Asensio etc. "We are very happy with how things have gone".

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - David Skara scored 16 points and Clemson opened with two straight wins for the 17th time in 18 years. Senior guard Sean Lloyd Jr made a layup to extend the SIU lead out to 42-37 with just under 15 minutes left in the game.

He indicated in his opening press conference that he was open to keeping the job full-time.

"Celta played very tough", Solari said. But the Argentine said on Movistar TV from Balaidos that he was just happy to have done what he could to help the team and the club in this moment.

Solari played for Real Madrid between 2000-2005 before moving on to join Inter Milan.

The challenge for Solari will be to manage the dressing room when results take a turn for the worse.

The Champions League holders are at the top of Group G with Roma, whom they visit on November 27. However, it has been revealed that former manager Zinedine Zidane turned down a move back to Real Madrid a little over two weeks ago, with reports emerging from FOX Sports saying the same.

Yesterday's 4-2 win over Celta Vigo was their fourth on the bounce under Solari off the back of five defeats in seven games.

"We are focusing on playing for our coach, we are prepared to die for him and we know that he is a great coach, we want him to continue", said defender Alvaro Odriozola on Sunday.
