The Real Madrid manager is getting ready to coach his team to two El Clasicos in four days: in the Copa del Rey and the Spanish La Liga.
What could be better than watching one El Clasico tomorrow? Watching two El Clasicos in four days.
Real Madrid and Barcelona will play back-to-back matches in the Copa del Rey and the Spanish La Liga.
And for Los Blancos coach Santiago Solari, these two games promise to be full of emotions.
“It should be a thriller, a typical Clásico that we are used to in Spain. This game turns Spain into the football capital of the world and it is one of the things that makes Spain such a brilliant country,” said Solari according to Managing Madrid.
“Our fans are the only definite starters tomorrow.”
“I want to see as many as possible out there supporting us. Tomorrow’s match is our key focus, we all want to get through the tie and want to see a spectacular game,” he explained.
“We’ve worked hard to make it this far in the season and still be standing in all of these competitions, we have to keep it up. The aim is to stand united, focused, and just concentrate as best we can on what we have to do from the first minute.”
“We have already spoken about Gareth, our focus now is on tomorrow’s game and we hope to live up to the demands of the tie,” he continued.
“We have gone through a lot of knockout ties to make it this far. The first game was a great one for the fans, in terms of Gareth and the others, they are focussed on the game too.”
“We are all standing united in the hope of winning as a team tomorrow.”
“Each game is a new challenge, a new challenge in itself. We’ll see tomorrow who plays. We are united and focused on the game,” Solari highlighted.
“We want to play and get into the final. To get here we had to beat Girona, Leganés, Melilla… It is great that we are in so many competitions and we want to win them all.”
