Real Madrid Coach Santiago Solari points out “we always get back up” ahead of tomorrow’s clash with Roma.
The Merengues were thrashed by Eibar at the weekend, and are looking for a reaction in the crucial Champions League showdown tomorrow.
“We need to do what this squad has always done in this tournament, prove that we’re up to it,” Solari said in his pre-match Press conference.
“It’s easy, but at the same time difficult. It was a heavy and hard defeat on Saturday, but it belongs in the past now.
“We’ve analysed the game and are looking forward, we’re in Italy, in Rome, and in another tournament so we’re focused on this match.
“Every game is a baptism of fire here, but whenever Real Madrid fall we always get back up. That’s why this is the most successful club in the world.”
Last week the latest Football Leaks revelations claimed Sergio Ramos failed a drug test after the Champions League final win over Juventus in 2017…
“Sergio Ramos is an honest person, a symbol not only of Real Madrid but of all Spanish football.
“I think it’s your duty to defend him, you need to search for the truth which isn’t subject to opinion.”
Solari is familiar with Italian football, as he spent three seasons with Inter between 2005 and 2008.
“Those three years in Italy were wonderful for me and for all Inter fans. I remember scoring against Lazio in this stadium.
“I remember with pleasure the games against Roma, with [Francesco] Totti and other wonderful players. Now we’re all old!
“The fans are fantastic, they never stop singing and supporting the team.”
