Real Madrid confirm Solari as coach until 2021

Real Madrid have won four in a row since Solari took charge

The statement read, "The board of directors of Real Madrid CF, which met today, 13 November 2018, has agreed to appoint Santiago Solari as first-team coach until 30 June 2021".

Real Madrid still lie sixth going into the worldwide break but they are only four points behind leaders Barcelona.

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

And with 15 goals scored and only two conceded he has established the best ever start for a Real manager.

The former Real Madrid Castilla tactician has been handed permanent control in similar circumstances to Zinedine Zidane, who was also the B-team boss before three years in charge at the Bernabeu.

This was after the club's poor run of form culminated in a painful 5-1 El Clasico defeat by FC Barcelona.

England's all-time leading goalscorer Wayne Rooney says it will be "strange" playing at Wembley in his farewell appearance for the country.

In the meantime Solari, who had previously been in charge of Madrid's reserve side, began achieving results that his predecessor had failed to accomplish.

When asked about Real's "crisis" in an interview, he said: "I don't see it as a crisis, it is not for me to lead from the front, there are other players that have been at the club for longer, they are more experienced, have a higher status and it is down to them".

"Madrid is bigger than all of us but it touches us all with its greatness".

Real Madrid have confirmed that defender Sergio Reguilon suffered a hamstring injury in the 4-2 win at Celta Vigo on Sunday.

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.
