Fans will not like hearing a younger star shying away from responsibility and it's down to Asensio to start asserting himself on the pitch for Real Madrid - not the experienced players.

"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", the release read in part.

Real Madrid have confirmed that Santiago Solari has been appointed as the club's new manager. "Real Madrid have worked out his contract and there are no problems", the Spanish football federation stated.

The 42-year-old manager expressed that he was hopeful of a permanent role when he started his interim position.

The last of those, a 5-1 thumping at the hands of Barcelona, proved the final straw for club president Florentino Perez but the team have rebounded under their new coach.

Solari led Real to wins over Melilla in the Copa del Rey and Viktoria Plzen in the UEFA Champions League, plus a pair of La Liga wins against Real Valladolid and Celta Vigo.

The Wall Street Journal initially reported that Ricardel had been fired and escorted from White House grounds. The dissatisfaction reportedly stems from how Ricardel handled Melania Trump's recent trip to Africa.

Real Madrid still lie sixth going into the global break but they are only four points behind leaders Barcelona.

Lucas Vazquez, another who has played more under Solari than under his predecessor, said: 'It would be hard for him to have done any better.

"Everything goes very quickly, the important thing is the day to day".

Solari's maiden match as long-term boss is the trip to Eibar in La Liga on Nov 25, following the global break.

In the meantime Solari, who had previously been in charge of Madrid's reserve side, began achieving results that his predecessor had failed to accomplish.

Real Madrid have confirmed that defender Sergio Reguilon suffered a hamstring injury in the 4-2 win at Celta Vigo on Sunday.
