Real Madrid coach Santiago Solari admits the Madrid players are currently in deep pain but they are ready to overturn their form as soon as possible.
Real’s 5-1 thrashing at the hands of Barcelona in the La Liga saw Julen Lopetegui being sacked after a harrowing start to the season. Four defeats in the last five games speak volumes about the current messy situation at the club and Solari will have the opportunity to lift the morale of the club.
The Real Madrid B manager was handed the interim charge of the first time and monitored his first training session on Tuesday. Los Blancos are scheduled to face Melilla on Tuesday in the Copa del Rey and will have the chance to restore their pride to some extent.
Solari said, “I have found a group in pain but eager to start and reverse the situation
It is a group of champions and warriors, it is not the easiest situation, but I see they want to turn it around.”
“The idea is to go to Melilla and show a lot of character,
I have great hopes. To work at Madrid is a great opportunity.”
