Real Madrid’s interim manager Santiago Solari claimed there is ‘no roof’ for his side’s potential, while also admitting that Los Blancos are in a state ‘permanent crisis’, after the 5-0 demolition of Viktoria Plzeň
Karim Benzema netted twice, with additional efforts from Casemiro and Gareth Bale ensuring Los Blancos had a 4-0 lead at half-time. Toni Kroos added a fifth after the breal to seal a third consecutive victory in all competitions for Solari’s men, who all but sealed their place in the knockout stages of the tournament.
As well as earning three wins from three matches, Madrid have kept three clean sheets in as many games under Solari, and when asked whether he had ever imagined the side to have started so well during his tenure, the Argentine suggested that there was nothing to stop his side from reaching their potential.
As quoted by AS, Solari told the media: “
“The man who asks that doesn’t know Madrid, no? We are in permanent crisis even though we won the Champions League.”
Solari has, so far, helped Real Madrid transition well, following the sacking of his predecessor Lopetegui. However, when asked whether he could see himself still managing the club by the end of the season, he implied that his priority was on the league encounter against Celta de Vigo at the weekend.
He added: “I am only thinking of the next game. I can only look to the next game. The most important game is the next one and in the game at the weekend you have to focus all of our efforts.”
