Real Madrid has confirmed the appointment of Santiago Solari as a permanent manager after a successful stay in guardianship.
Solari oversaw four consecutive wins in all competitions, scoring 15 goals as a temporary Realist manager after Julen Lopetegui left last month and was handed over to the rest of the team by June 2021. Last season, the Champions League winners have four points for the leaders of Barcelona in La Liga.
A brief statement on the club's website was: "The Board of Directors of Real Madrid, who met today, November 13, 2018, agreed to appoint Santiago Solari as the first team's coach until June 30, 2021."
Argentinean Solari made almost 150 appearances in Real in early 2000 and returned to the club in 2013 as a youth coach. In 2016, he moved to take control of reserves, and his promotion to supervise the first team was temporarily considered more prestigious.
The success of the Solari, as well as the Spanish regulations banning the guardian from taking up more than two weeks, gained him a chance as a permanent manager.
The 42-year-old was hoping that he would get the job from the very beginning, after he was appointed: "I'm going to get things positive and do everything I can." It's a great opportunity.
"Everyone is going through this life in general and in this profession, everything is going very fast, it is important every day."
