Real Madrid Decide On New Manager But Could He Be Out By Christmas?

Solari has bagged the job, for now...

Real Madrid are delighted with the start they have made under new interim manager Santiago Hernan Solari scoring eleven goals with no reply in his first three games. That record has returned three wins in three competitions and restored parity to this Real Madrid side after a nightmare of an El Clasico.

According to Marca, the chiefs at the club have decided that Solari has earnt the right to remain in charge until Christmas at least, on an interim basis. Julen Lopetegui left the club in disarray yet Solari has stepped up to the mark and steadied the ship and already appears to be a hit with the players.

Now the club sit top of their Champions League group and look set to qualify for the knockout stages yet again. It would be quite the turnaround if Solari could lead his side to a fourth consecutive Champions League trophy, without Cristiano Ronaldo.

The club are still not giving up on La Liga, despite lying seven points behind current leaders Barcelona and slumped down in sixth position. Los Blancos are not appointing Solari as a permanent boss yet as they feel may need another boost in the coming months.

They are remaining attentive to the current managerial market due to the fact they are not convinced Solari will have the same success as former manager Zinedine Zidane. However, if they can achieve success again without paying out for a new manager that would be the ideal outcome.

So Solari has until Christmas to prove his worth. If Real Madrid start to climb the league table and make progress in Europe, he could well find himself as the new permanent boss of Real Madrid.

However, if Florentino Perez and his staff feel no progress is being made, a new permanent manager could be appointed in the new year. Current gaffers in the running are Roberto Martinez, Mauricio Pochettino and Antonio Conte.
