Real Madrid appoints Santiago Solari on permanent deal

Official Real Madrid confirm Solari as permanent coach

Solari, who spent five years playing for Real, was promoted from his role in charge of Castilla, the club´s B team, after Lopetegui had overseen a miserable run that included just one victory in seven games.

The Argentinean had been in temporary charge of Real Madrid following the sacking of Julen Lopetegui but he has now been given the full reigns.

Argentinian coach Santiago Solari has been appointed Real Madrid manager on a permanent basis until June 30, 2021.

The loss of another defender is a blow for interim head coach Santiago Solari, with Marcelo, Raphael Varane, Dani Carvajal and Jesus Vallejo still out of commission.

Solari led Real to wins over Melilla in the Copa del Rey and Viktoria Plzen in the UEFA Champions League, plus a pair of La Liga wins against Real Valladolid and Celta Vigo.

He takes over permanently with Madrid sixth in LaLiga, four points behind leaders Barcelona.

Rain rules in Dubai as Pakistan and New Zealand share series
The rain also meant that Pakistan's search for a series win against New Zealand continued, having last won against them in 2011. Pakistan defeated New Zealand by six wickets in the second one day global in Abu Dhabi levelling the three-match series 1-1.

But Solari's success, with his side not just winning all four games but scoring 15 goals in the process, has earned him a chance as permanent boss.

Real Madrid will hope to maintain their winning streak when they take on Eibar after the global break (November 24, 12pm United Kingdom time).

"He has done excellently", Madrid club director Emilio Butragueno said on Sunday night. It's a great opportunity.

"The Solaris are a football family and when things go well, we enjoy it as much as anyone".

After the global break, Madrid´s generous run of games continues with league matches against Eibar, Valencia, Huesca, Rayo Vallecano and Villarreal before Christmas, none of whom now reside in La Liga´s top half.

Lopetegui endured a rocky spell in charge of the Spanish giants, paying with his job after a 5-1 humiliation at the hands of rivals Barca.
