• Real Madrid trail league leaders Barcelona by four points
Real Madrid have confirmed the appointment of Santiago Solari as their permanent manager following his successful spell in caretaker charge.
Solari oversaw four consecutive victories in all competitions, with 15 goals scored, as Real’s interim manager after the departure of Julen Lopetegui last month and has now been handed the reins full-time until June 2021. Last season’s Champions League winners are four points behind leaders Barcelona in the La Liga table.
