Los Blancos have seen a dramatic turnaround in form since Solari took over from the sacked Julen Lopetegui last month

Real Madrid have appointed Santiago Solari as their full-time manager after sacking Julen Lopetegui.

The Argentinian reserve team coach was originally placed in charge on a “provisional” basis, however has since turned the team’s results around and so now been rewarded with a permanent deal until 2021.

Madrid sacked their old boss on October 29 after a horrendous start to the season left them sitting ninth in the LaLiga.

Lopetegui lasted just 14 matches after taking over from Zinedine Zidane, with his final result becoming a 5-1 humiliation at the hands of bitter rivals Barcelona.

Since being placed in charge, Solari has guided Real Madrid to four wins in four matches, hence the club’s decision to appoint him full-time.

A brief statement read: “The Board of Directors of Real Madrid CF, meeting today November 13, 2018, has agreed to the appointment of Santiago Solari as coach of the first team until June 30, 2021.”
