On tuesday Real Madrid confirmed Santiago Solari as their new permanent first team coach until the end of June 2021 following a successful fortnight in charge since replacing the sacked Julen Lopetegui on Oct. 29.

It had been reported in the Spanish press that Solari would be offered a deal until the end of June 2020, but finally the club has given him a contract for two and a half years as a sign of their confidence in him.

Solari scored 10 goals in 131 league appearances for the club between 2000 and 2005 and after hanging up his boots, he returned to work in the Real Madrid youth system in 2013, being made Castilla coach in 2016.
