The perfect storm of Real Madrid's Santiago Solari: injuries, tension in the locker room and fights with fans – 12/12/2018


The World Cup is just around the corner and this time the club that will represent Europe is going through a complicated time that makes them doubt their favorite role. O Real Madrid will be beaten to international competition, where in a hypothetical final will surely wait for Rio Encantado of Marcelo Gallardo.

The club that has won four of the last five editions of the Champions League has been on a turbulent path since the departure of two of the key pillars for this stage: Cristiano Ronaldo, and the coach Zinedine Zidane. In between was the fleeting Julen Lopetegui, who had arrived at the club White after a disgrace – enunciate generously – the exit of the selection of Spain in the previous one of World-wide of Russia.

It was because of the maximum competition of European clubs that Indie Solari exploded the problem. This Wednesday, Madrid fell 3-0 against CSKA Moscow, who finished last in Group G of the Champions League. The tension was such that the whistles of the fans dismissed the team already in the interval, when the meringue (who played with some substitutes and had the guaranteed classification for eighth) lost by two goals.

The fall for the Russians was the worst as a local in the history of Real Madrid in European competitions. But the result was not the only sad note of the night. During the meeting, Isco Alarcón He starred in two situations that caused anger in Madrid.

After a play that ended in nothing, in the 10 minutes of the second half, some fans started asking for a little more delivery. The Málaga player got up and, with his arms outstretched, looked at the bleachers and outlined the phrase: "What do you want, motherfuckers?"

On the other hand, in the 74th minute, the midfielder, without much shot since Solari arrived, he rejected the captain's tape, that carried the Brazilian Marcelo, situation that generated whistles in the bleachers of the Santiago Bernabéu stadium.

Or Malaga nor does he have the support of the wardrobe. This has been demonstrated in this situation. Marcelo did not hesitate to expose him: "I tried to give the tape to Isco, but he said to give to Carvajal, because I do not know." He added that "fans have the right to whistle when they are not comfortable with someone."

Another bitter drink that the team suffered Indie before CSKA was the loss of Gareth Bale, who entered the beginning of the second half and finished the game very sore after having bent the right foot. Due to the injury, he had to be treated twice. After conducting studies, it was determined that the Welshman has an ankle joint, his presence at the World Cup is in danger.

In addition, in The White House Also injured are the Brazilian Casemiro (right ankle twist with affection of syndesmosis), Sergio Reguilón (muscle injury in the biceps femoris of his right leg) and Mariano Díaz (injury to the right thigh of the right leg), who are almost recovered and working with the group. Nacho Fernandez, who is recovering from an injury to the inner collateral ligament of his right knee, will return only in January.

Another "historical" that does not enter into the consideration of Solari is Keylor Navas. The TD was tipped by the great Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, but the Costa Rican parchments, the love of the supporter and the irregularity of the team made him receive some doubts about his choice.

In the mixed zone after the match against CSKA, Solari He left a journalist., after he asked, "On a day of opportunities, why did Keylor (Navas) not?", to which the coach replied that it is just a decision. "But, anything happens to him?", The reporter found. And there Solari looked at the camera, smiled, said "permission," and left without a reply.

Solari will be back in the Bernabeu on Saturday when Real Madrid host Rayo Vallecano for the 16th Spanish League. He will then leave for Abu Dhabi, where he will make his debut at 1:30 p.m. (Argentine time), before the winner of the Chivas de Guadalajara and Kashima Antlers (Saturday, 10 p.m.). Will wait for the River Marcelo Gallardo, who comes with confidence in ascension after winning the Copa Libertadores.
