Real Madrid Coach Santiago Solari says he is not bothered over the half-empty stadium during his side’s Copa del Rey match against Leganes adding that Real Madrid have “hundreds of millions of fans.”

Real Madrid won the match 3-0 but recorded a low turnout of spectators with just 44,231 in attendance for the game. This is not the first time the team will be experiencing this low crowd as it has become a regular occurrence this season.

But Solari, when asked questions about falling support by spectators said the club has a lot of supporters.

“Real Madrid have hundreds of millions of fans around the world, in all countries,” Solari said in his post-match news conference via FourFourTwo.
