Spanish football club Real Madrid fc, are set to confirm interim boss santiago solari as their new head coach.
According to Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) rules, Real’s period of 14 days to either select Solari full-time or to find another coach to replace Julen Lopetegui comes to an end on Monday and Solari’s appointment does seem to be imminent.
Since taking over on October 29 Solari has guided the European Cup holders to four victories in as many matches including Sunday’s impressive 4-2 La Liga display at Celta Vigo.
Lopetegui was dismissed after an embarrassing 5-1 defeat at arch-rivals Barcelona, his fourth loss in the last of his five La Liga games in charge.
Real’s next fixture and possibly Solari’s maiden match as long-term boss is the trip to Eibar in La Liga on November 25, following the international break.
