Real Madrid making moves to appoint Solari on permanent basis - RFEF

Antonio Conte has hit back at Sergio Ramos after he was warned by the defender about becoming Real Madrid's next manager.

He added: 'We did not play a game to have conceded four goals, I'm sad because we wanted to give our people joy and with 1-2 we were very close to the draw'.

The three points keep Madrid sixth in the La Liga table, but they are now just four points behind leaders Barcelona, who were shocked 4-3 by Real Betis at the Camp Nou earlier on Sunday.

Few could argue with the results, which have now earned Solari the chance to prove himself over a longer period. But the Argentine said on Movistar TV from Balaidos that he was just happy to have done what he could to help the team and the club in this moment. I've been here with other teams, I've played and sweated in the shirt of this club.

Real will return to action after the global break with a trip to Eibar, before then facing Roma in the latest instalment of their Champions League title defence. After retirement, he went into coaching and took charge of Madrid's B team, "Real Madrid Castilla", in 2016 after Zinedine Zidane made the step up to the first team following Rafa Benítez's dismissal.

Formerly viewed as the leading candidate to succeed Ryan as speaker, now he must build support to become minority leader. Pelosi, meanwhile, is likely to face a challenge for the speakership from newer or younger members later this month.

"He's one of the greatest things we've ever had at this club", Solari said last month.

The challenge for Solari will be to manage the dressing room when results take a turn for the worse. The Belgium global was preferred to Keylor Navas in the European match for the first time this season but he will continue playing in the La Liga Santander as well.

League rules mandate that an interim coach can not stay longer than a fortnight in the post, meaning Madrid's hierarchy must either confirm Solari as their permanent coach on Monday or look elsewhere for a new full-time boss.

The Champions League holders are at the top of Group G with Roma, whom they visit on November 27.

It proved an impressive final audition as Madrid struck a 4-2 victory, with Solari having to adapt to a handful of injury problems during the game.
