New year and old "problems" for Real Madrid. Nothing that does not happen in any team: those who do not play or those who do little, are not happy. And if those who participate less are players like Isco or Keylor Navas, stars, the noise is greater. The midfielder, asked at the airport by fellow "Four", said he has no intention of leaving in this winter market. Solari, at the moment, gives him more love than minutes. "I think everyone has to be involved and committed to the team, as they are. Isco, of course, is a great footballer who has given us many joys, and he will continue to give them to us. We need them all, "said the Argentine coach in his first public appearance of 2019. Madrid opens Thursday with Villarreal in La Cerámica (21:30), and Isco is likely to start on the bench, although the Malaga has the example of other footballers of the template as Marcos Llorente, who went from not being called in the first games to be a starter.
Now the projection has been cut by an injury, but Casemiro will return. Solari, yes, does not talk about signings, or departures or possible arrivals. "I have no news about it," he said. "It is not for me to talk about the strategy of signings, it belongs to the private scene," he said.
Madrid and all those who remain in Cup and advance rounds await a month charged to have to combine this competition with the League. Luis García, the new coach of Villarreal, already complained about the calendar. Solari speaks of "illusion" for all competitions, does not renounce any, and not to get away a little more in the League (now it is eight points behind the leader Barcelona, with one game less) can not afford to start the year with a stumble in The Ceramics. "We have to play a solid game with lots of energy. It is important that we have rhythm, and we have been working on it in these few days since we returned, "explained Solari, who highlighted the high moral that can give his family the chance to win the Club World Cup.
«We won it with solidity. I see you all happy [también a Isco y a Keylor Navas]Winning a title is important because of the title itself and because it had a symbolic value when it was supposed to close a cycle because of previous victories, "said the Madrid coach. The irregular start of the season of his team was attributed to bad fitness. Does Solari see his team better now? He answers: "Football is global, it is impossible to separate the physical, the technical and the psychic. When it works, it usually does everything at once. "
