Marco Asensio believes that it is not for him to now lead from the front and assert himself at the club with the current problems as there are players in the Real Madrid squad who are more experienced and carry more weight.

"The board of directors of Real Madrid C.F., which met today, 13 November 2018, has agreed to appoint Santiago Solari as first-team coach until 30 June 2021", it said.

Real Madrid have confirmed Santiago Solari has been appointed head coach on a permanent basis, signing a deal until 2021.

And with 15 goals scored and only two conceded he has established the best ever start for a Real manager.

The Argentinean had been in temporary charge of Real Madrid following the sacking of Julen Lopetegui but he has now been given the full reigns.

Saudi state media said King Salman sacked him and other officials over the killing, and a senior Saudi official said last month that Qahtani had been detained.

Solari took charge of the first team a fortnight ago and promptly racked up the best start of any new manager at the club in its 116 year history.

After thrashing Melilla in the Copa del Rey, they won 5-0 away to Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League, between victories over Real Valladolid and Celta Vigo in La Liga.

This was after the club's poor run of form culminated in a painful 5-1 El Clasico defeat by FC Barcelona.

Solari's appointment as permanent manager was approved by the Spanish soccer federation (RFEF) on Monday. It's a great opportunity. "Real Madrid have worked out his contract and there are no problems". "We are very happy with how things have gone". "I don't just say that now as coach of the first team".

Solari's maiden match as long-term boss is the trip to Eibar in La Liga on Nov 25, following the worldwide break.
