It was an honour to serve Real Madrid – Santiago Solari

Former Real Madrid boss Santiago Solari holds no hard feelings towards his former club and has said it was ‘an honour to serve’ them.

The Argentine was at the helm of Los Blancos between October and March last season, taking the reins after Julen Lopetegui’s dismissal before Zinedine Zidane returned to the role.

Solari was unable to halt Madrid’s underwhelming La Liga form and was also in charge for their eliminations from both the Champions League and Copa del Rey.

“I see a very good Real Madrid, one that is very happy,” Solari told Chiringuito, as cited by Diario AS.

“I am very happy that they won yesterday (against Sevilla). We needed it totally, it was very important.

“It does not hurt that I left the club, it is always an honour to serve Madrid.”
