The Argentinian Santiago Solari, until now interim coach of Real Madrid, was confirmed in his functions by the merengue club, which made his contract approved on Monday, the Spanish federation (RFEF) told AFP.
When his temporary contract, limited to two weeks according to the regulations, came to an end on Monday, the 42-year-old Argentine was officially confirmed in the position by Real Madrid who approved his contract.
"Everything is in order. Real Madrid He took care of his contract and there is no problem, "the RFEF said in an email sent to AFP.
Appointed at the end of October after a resounding defeat in the Classic in Barcelona (5-1), the then coach of the subsidiary had to replace "provisionally" Julen Lopetegui, fired for his bad results.
But without too many coaches available in the market at mid-season and after two weeks on the bench, the Argentine convinced the players, the fans and the leaders with his smiling and determined style but above all with his results.
The victory before the Celta Vigo on Sunday (2-4), the first important meeting in a kind calendar for Solari, confirmed its impact on the team's dynamics.
After five defeats in the last seven games of the Lopetegui era, Real Madrid counts its games by victories in the four matches led by the Argentine.
Under his baton, the European champions the last three seasons they got 15 goals and they only fit two, the best start in history for a Real Madrid coach.
Even the results of others favor him: the defeat of the leader, FC Barcelona, on Sunday against Betis (3-4), places the targets only four points from the head of the League.
And in the Champions League they are close to closing the standings for the last 16 before facing AS Roma on November 27.
With a calm and benevolent tone, the former Merengue midfielder (2000-2005) could follow in the footsteps of Zinedine Zidane, who also trained the subsidiary before moving up to the first team in 2016 and winning three consecutive Champions League titles.
Solari's first challenge will be to retain the title of club world champion, which will be played from December 12 to 22 in the United Arab Emirates.
