Solari explains poor form, aims dig at players

Solari loses the plot and aims scathing dig at Real Madrid footballers

March 9, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
The coach did not help his current situation with Los Blancos following their UEFA Champions League exit.

Real Madrid coach Santiago Solari did not hold back in his analysis on what went wrong for Los Blancos in the past couple of weeks, where the team lost all chances of winning any trophies this season. Contrary to what you may have expected, the Argentine tactician had some unflattering words for some of his players, making it clear that his relationship with the squad is nothing short to being broken.

Speaking in the pre-match press conference of what could be his final game as Real boss, Solari looked into the circumstances that played a key role in the team's recent woes, which included losing three games in a row at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

"When things get tough, you get to see how everyone shows their worth. You see those who step up and those who hide. Most players have lived up to what I expected from them. Unfortunately, there are those who did not live up to my expectations, and I told each and every one of the about it," Solari said.

The Argentine tactician aimed yet one more dig at Isco, who made headlines once again after leaving the team on their own when Solari told him he was not included in the squad that faced -and lost- against Ajax.

"Disciplinary issues are dealt with behind closed doors. In order to play, you have to keep yourself fit. Then, that fitness will allow you to be competitive. If you manage to do both, then you can play," Solari added.

The only player that escaped Solari's wrath was Sergio Ramos. The captain will travel with the team to Valladolid despite being banned to play, something that Solari praised.

"He doesn't need to run such a thing by me. We spoke about it and I think it's great that he wants to be around the team," Solari concluded.

Real Madrid will try to shorten the gap between themselves and the teams in first and second place. Barcelona is now 15 points ahead of them, while Atlético is eight points over Los Blancos.
