Real Madrid Hand Solari 3-Year Deal

Real Madrid Hand Solari 3-Year Deal

Interim Real Madrid manager Santiago Solari was appointed permanent coach on Monday after overseeing a startling upturn in the European champions' fortunes since he stepped in to replace Julen Lopetegui.

Solari, who also featured for Atletico Madrid during his playing career, was initially thought to be only a stop-gap solution following Lopetegui's departure, with Real Madrid expected to seek a more experienced long-term hire.

In those games, Real Madrid have scored an impressive 15 goals and conceded just two goals.

Solari's record of four consecutive victories represents the greatest start of any manager in the Madrid's history.

The former Spain coach was dismissed after a crushing 5-1 defeat by Barcelona in El Clasico underpinned a disappointing start to their league campaign.

BMW wants to reclaim its crown as the purveyor of the ultimate driving machine, and the M340i is a key part of its offensive. After unveiling the 330i at the Paris Motor Show , BMW will debut the more powerful M340i in Los Angeles later this month.

"He has done excellently", Madrid club director Emilio Butragueno said on Sunday night.

Armed with a new deal, Solari will look to keep Madrid's run going against Eibar on November 24 and also aim to win the La Liga, the Champions League and the Supercopa de España which he won as a player at the club.

"Everything goes very quickly, the important thing is the day to day".

"However, if they were put there then it was because they had the backing of the Argentina federation president and the Real Madrid president, but I don't think they will be around for long".

Solari's maiden match as long-term boss is the trip to Eibar in La Liga on Nov 25, following the worldwide break. "I don't just say that now as coach of the first team".
