Real Madrid name Santiago Solari as Julen Lopetegui's permanent replacement

Real Madrid Benzema Courtois and more feel the Solari effect

Real Madrid announced on Tuesday that interim manager Santiago Solari has signed a contract to make him the permanent coach of the club until 2021.

"Everything is in order".

And with 15 goals scored and only two conceded he has established the best ever start for a Real manager.

Lopetegui's brief tenure ended in a 5-1 thumping to Barcelona at the Nou Camp.

But victories against Melilla (4-0), Valladolid (2-0), Viktoria Plzen (5-0) and Celta Vigo (4-2) gave Solari statistically the best start of any new manager in Madrid's entire history, leading to his appointment to the job long term.

Since then, Los Blancos have won all four games under Solari across all competitions.

Speaking after Madrid's victory over Celta, club director Emilio Butragueno said: 'The truth is that we are very happy with him. "Everything goes very quickly, the important thing is the day to day". It's a great opportunity.

But that would make them look like they're at war with the president, just as he always says they are. President Trump has given the press more access than any President in history.

In the meantime Solari, who had previously been in charge of Madrid's reserve side, began achieving results that his predecessor had failed to accomplish.

"Madrid is bigger than all of us but it touches us all with its greatness".

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

Solari's maiden match as long-term boss is the trip to Eibar in La Liga on November 25, following the worldwide break.

On Monday a source at the Spanish federation [RFEF] told ESPN FC that all the relevant paperwork had been filed to change Solari's status to permanent - with league rules mandating that an interim coach can only take the team for a maximum two week period.

Marco Asensio believes that it is not for him to now lead from the front and assert himself at the club with the current problems as there are players in the Real Madrid squad who are more experienced and carry more weight.
