Santiago Solari assumes the position of technical director after the dismissal of Julen Lopetegui, according to a white team statement the cause was the great disproportion between the quality of the template and the results obtained to date.
The Italian Conte sounded a lot to replace Lopetegui, but who assumes the position is the Argentine who surprised this morning with a press conference of 9 minutes, where we had two things clear, he is an excellent politician dodging uncomfortable questions and that he will put it “cojones”.
The questions that most attracted attention were:
How did you find the group on this first day, in this first training and what were your main messages?
Hurt, (Suarez has given them very hard on Sunday), but eager to start and reverse the situation
Who told you was going to be the coach of the first team?
That belongs to the private sphere.
I would like to know what idea you have to apply in the first team.
The idea is to go to Melilla tomorrow and play with two balls. That is the idea that we have.
How should we talk to the players at this moment? Of tactics, we must reinforce the mind, what should we say?
We will go day by day and little by little. We’ll see. There are things that are inside, for us. What one would say, what the other would say … are for the group, (I have no idea, ask something else)
Do you think Vinicius has a level for the first team?
There are no players in the first Real Madrid squad that do not have a level for the first Real Madrid squad. (Obviously, he will play, if nobody makes a goal).
Do you consider this as an opportunity for some matches or if you internally believe that you can stay until the end of the season?
We are all passing through life and in this profession with more reason. Everything goes very fast, the important thing is the day by day. (It depends on whether I do it right or mess the whole thing up).
The Argentine has shown himself to be very correct with the press, he has not given them anything more than what we can read between the lines, in the Cup of the King match we will see how he behaves in the field and if he is able to tame such a difficult wardrove as the white.
