54

Santiago SOLARI has been named the permanent coach of Real Madrid.

The reigning European champions have announced that Santiago SOLARI will stay on as coach after having initially announced him as being the interim manager. Per the club, SOLARI will stay on until June 2021, which would give him nearly a full three years.

Now 42, SOLARI lead Madrid to four wins out of four in his first matches in charge. This now means that the next Madrid derby will have two Argentine coaches at the helm. Santiago SOLARI for Real Madrid an Diego SIMEONE fro Atletico Madrid.

  1. I think our team will still be on the path of growing coming Copa. AFA and our past 3 coaches r responsible for our current state. 90 percent of our players haven’t even played 10 matches.

    Add to that we don’t have a permanent Coach. A great scenario to win Copa… Kudos…

    Realistically our chances r less In Copa. Either agree or not but fact remains that We r in a state of chaos in NT. Keep growing as a young unit and get ready for the Qualifiers…AFA president itself agrees that.

    Well otherwise Sometimes Miracles may happen…Let’s hope. HOPE is what keeps all us moving ahead…

    • Yeah, right, Hope is a good thing. After mexico matches the picture will start to clear.
      WE have the talent, WE should go for it. If Scaloni manages positive results and good performance in both matches he should stay as permanent coach, he still needs more time. Let us give him all the time needed.
      I think WE can win the Copa with Scaloni, there is no need to hire another coach because it will be counter productive. Let us remember that the coach is under tremendous pressure to deliver,too. not just the players.So let us all get behind the team.

      • Yuppp one coach I would still fancy is Gallardo by the way.. But even he also needs time. So it’s rather better to carry on with Scaloni till Copa. May be after that let’s see. I think that’s where AFA is going.

        Sabella had 3 years period to prepare too for 2014 WC he nearly did it.. That’s a reasonable time for building a great team.

    “still no clear idea which player is going , about their roles , about any tactics and again in same disbelief that some miracle will happen in copa 2019, like what happened in WC . Dont forget other teams are playing togther since years and scaloni is not even a master tactician like bielsa or garecha so that he will find out some solution at the moment”.

    Bullshit. Stop spreading false propaganda. Scaloni did more within 4 games than other coaches within one year. He’d have already most of the team defined if not plague of injuries and Copa Libertadores dates:

    …………………Romero
    …………Pezzella….Otamendi
    Saravia…………………………Tagliafico
    ………………..Paredes
    ………..LoCelso……Palacios
    …..?………………………………Pity
    …………………..?

    this names and positions looked likes most obvious and it’s Scaloni’s work to bring them and introduce well. In fact the only positions that looks unknown ATM are right wing (Pavon still didn’t got the second chance under Scaloni) and central forward but here it’s rather not Scaloni’s fault some players didn’t delivered so far.

    Scaloni selection is sensible. He is still calling new names but that’s mostly because of many injuries and Copa Libertadores players unavailable.

    Finally, what do you know about tactical abilities of Scaloni. Yes, he is young coach but that doesn’t mean he is not good on tactical part of his work.

    • I have to agree here, It was not Scaloni’s fault that many players did not deliver.
      One can not do much when some players fail to impress. tactics can go so far, the rest relies on the players shoulders. Scaloni knows what type of players he has, so he can not impose some tactics on them that they can not deliver, unlike Sampa who tried to impose certain tactics on the team when it was obvious that the players can not deliver under such tactics.
      I talked about the pressure on the players before, but it’s more on the coach.

        “Scaloni did more within 4 games than other coaches within one year.”
        What has he done in 4 matches.
        Against gautemala?
        Against iraq?
        Even sampoli defeated singapore 6-0 and even brazil 1-0.
        Look at the way they playing no build up game from midfield, no counter attacks from wide areas.
        @ebo
        “he approached Brazil’s match in such defensive manner, and he did fairly well.” Friend i dont know how did you watch the game we were lucky not to loose by 2-0 or 3-0 , the way they were playing if it was a real game 2 argentine players would have been sent off , 32% possesion come on this is argentina, dont forget we lost to brazil.

        • “32% possesion come on this is argentina”
          It is still not the Argentina we know, with totally fresh faces. I know

          How would you approach that match with a fresh team that did not play 3 times together and knowing that your players are not a match for the opponent ? Do you really expect them to play like what WE are used to see from Argentina? Or do they need to form cohesion in a matter of 2 months? If WE had played an open game, we would lose by 5. Scaloni’s approach was the smart move because he knows that losing by big margin would have devastated the squad. Guys need to understand there is always a mental and moral aspect of the game, and that matters a lot.

        • “Even sampoli defeated singapore 6-0 and even brazil 1-0.”
          Yes right, but he had better team, with better players who were cohesive, now WE are in a different period of time of the national team. WE started a brand new fresh project, and things don’t click right away. That is Why I was calling for a smooth transition. But it did not happen. Regardless of why it did not, WE should just understand the situation and carry on with the best we can.

          • @mrinal1235

            My friend, WE always can tap into the senior players if needed. Rest assured that if Scaloni sees fit to call some of them he will do that, He is building a project and calling old players as needed, He did a good thing by introducing fresh blood to the NT and gave chances to many players who will carry the team on their shoulders in the near future .

    • Furthermore, a smart coach works to the best ability of his players, that’s why he approached Brazil’s match in such defensive manner, and he did fairly well.

  3. just to remind to friends here that in national team football is not exist only world cups.

    in Europe they have Euro cup and we have Copa America.

    so next year in summer we have Copa America and we want to WIN IT .
    in the summer of 2020 exist Copa America again and WE WANT TO WIN IT AGAIN.

    in 2022 exist the world cup. 4 YEARS AFTER !!!

    we are ARGENTINA not one small football nation. WE ARE NOT CLUB TOO to make transfers to build a team for win one championship or European cup in time deep next 4 years after.

    this comedy about look only world cup of 2022 should stop.
    ENOUGH.

    • Winning the Copa in Brazil’s backyard will make up for all the hard times we experienced in the last 25 years! And Will give the players confidence for the next cycle of the history of the NT.

      • it will make huge impact to many things.
        players as you said correct
        coaching staff , fans in Argentina and in all around the world , media around world ,
        AFA president and everyone inside there and generally for all the Argentinian football.

        i believe it will turn the key on for us.

      • Exactly, I can’t believe some of us are belittling this important tournament. Brazil is a better team,have to admit. But even in this transition period, Argentina is still a better force than all other teams. I see no point in the argument of skipping Copa attention, for the 2022. I guess many are getting there because of inferiority considering this down stage of the team.
        They have to remember : ” battles have been won against worse odds”.

        In my opinion, Argentina is the team to be defeated to win this Copa, as it was the case in all other versions.

    • Well said mate. Every friendly game matters. We are talking about a proud footballing nation which won more hearts than any other country all over the world in the last 6_7 decades.

  4. Argentina superstar like Aguero, Dimaria even benega were silent because no permanent coach ignoring them despite good club performance, if scaloni wasn’t Argentina coach as interim basis we might see bad mouthing from the senior players

    • He’s definitely good but it remains to be seen whether he’s world class level and inorder to demonstrate that he’d need alot more playing time. Hopefully he’ll get a few more starts and build a reputation that will allow him to move to another club where he can get regular playing time to prove himself.
      In the time being I’m glad he’s getting called up because that can do wonders to his confidence and I would also like to see Walter Benitez get a call because he’s had some stand out performances in france recently.

  5. Copa America is not our target. 2022 WC should be which looks tough to qualify. More than Copa I m Worried of Qualifiers its gonna be tough I think. Copa
    will be an experience for our youngsters and will be the swan song for some of our players too. We have lesser chances to win it obviously… Now only 5 or 6 matches r left before Copa.including the Mexico friendlies.

    If Scaloni is not continued then it adds more difficulty too.. I think AFA will use Scaloni as a dummy till Copa and after that they may hire someone else. Let’s see

    • I don’t know how a major FIFA tournament could be a training camp for another tournament 3 1/2 years later?
      Why make it a swan song for players who will be there only to win?
      If you want them to be there then the target should be winning the tournament, right?
      That negates what you said earlier:
      “Copa America is not our target.”

      Winning Copa19 – or at least competing effectively – will be the strongest push we could get towards winning WC2022.
      I don’t care who plays, WE could call back Diego and Roman, or field a bunch of 10 years old for all I care. BUT WE have to work hard towards winning this coming Copa. It will not make us lose direction, on the contrary, it will solidify it and lift the moral of the players and all the fans around the globe, after it had been destroyed, significantly.

      • Copa America should be our target
        Winning copa America will make
        Everything else easy it will take off
        Our team a lot of pressure ..
        It will make our moral high
        So please guys don’t come
        Say we don’t target copa
        2022 is long way.. personally
        I want arg to win copa in 2019 and 2020
        Confederations cup in 2021
        World cup in 2020 with playing
        With beautiful football

      • > I don’t know how a major FIFA tournament could be a training camp for another tournament 3 1/2 years later?

        It’s rather ridiculous..so many things can happen over the next few years.

        > Winning Copa19 – or at least competing effectively – will be the strongest push we could get towards winning WC2022.

        Completely agree.

    • If you went to a popular area in Buenos Aires with a megaphone and got everyones attention by saying “Excuse me….I have an important message. I’ve thought about it for quite some time and you know what – Copa America in Brazil is not our Target”.

      I would advise you to run because everyone will throw rocks, tomatoes, and chimichurri at you in disagreement. 🙂

      I couldn’t disagree more, Copa is absolutely our priority. There is absolutely no reason to focus on 22 when so many factors can change over the next few years. Right now, we are going to do everything humanly possible to win Copa on brazilian soil.

      Also, If you think Copa is not a priority, then you are saying current selection and /or coach aren’t good enough… Which means changes need to happen now…

    • Great video.
      You know, one of my friends told me 2 days ago that he watched the highlights of River vs Boca and was surprised at how crazy the fans are.

      • yes true. the passion and the love of Argentinian fans about our clubs and our national team is so big that in Europe and in other places in world they can not understand this.

        even me i can not find way to explain this thing with words to somebody else 🙂

        the feelings and the emotions is so big and deep but if somebody looking from outside this “picture” of us he is thinking that we need to visit psychiatrist doctor 🙂
