Solari Delighted To Guide Madrid On the Right Track
Real Madrid interim manager, Santiago Solari is gradually guiding the club back to its rightful place after he was appointed from the Team B to take over from Julen Lopetegui.
Solari guided the Los Blancos to their second three consecutive win this season with a 5-0 trouncing of Viktoria Plzen in their Champions League group game on Wednesday night.
The victory saw Karim Benzema netting his 200th goal for Real Madrid in all competitions to become the club 7th all-time highest goalscorer.
Solari in a post-match conference dedicated the victory to his players describing them as real stars who have no limits.
He said, “We were driven from start to finish. The players showed goal scoring abilities. There were some sensational goals out there. Champions League games don’t end 0-5 without some serious character being shown. I am thrilled with that game, but it is all down to the players”
“There are some real stars in this team, who can play however they like. They showed before that there are no limits and playing with drive and commitment, despite the tough games, we can score goals. The goals were a joy to behold”.
“The players are very well equipped and that’s to their credit. It’s a long old season and you go through different phases. We now face another very difficult game on Sunday and we’ll have to approach it with the same disciplined attitude”.
Asked if he will remain the coach till the end of the season, he said, “The only thing I can do is focus on our next game and that’s fine with me. I can only see as far as the next link in the chain. Football is all about the here and now and the most important thing is your next game. We’ve come through this one with flying colours and we now have to think about our next match and focus all of our efforts and energy on it”.
