Santiago Solari declared Real Madrid ‘don’t get tired of winning’ after they clinched their third consecutive Club World Cup.
Madrid thrashed Al Ain 4-1 on Saturday to become the first club to ever successively retain the Club World Cup, and Solari was delighted to see Los Blancos end the year on a high.
“We don’t get tired of winning,” the Coach said after the game.
“The players deserve credit, the club too, for applying the finishing touches to a wonderful year, which we’ll try to prolong.
“Winning three Champions Leagues and three Club World Cups is something difficult to repeat. This group have made history.
“I’ve already said that I’m very fond of this cup. I played in it in 1996 and I know how hard it is to win it.
“I played in it again in 2000 with Real Madrid and lost but won it in 2002, before I lost it with Atlante.
“It’s a beautiful trophy for how it brings together different cultures. This club are used to repeating successes but the more you win, the more you know how difficult it is to win.
“It’s like an aeroplane: the more you travel, the more afraid you are. I liked the sincerity that the players played with in this tournament.
“We had two very complete games and managed them in the way we wanted, despite football being able to surprise you.”
