Solari appears to have earned himself the right to take charge of the team for the remainder of the season, at which point Madrid will nearly certainly dive back into the managerial market in search of a new long-term boss.

Now placed sixth, Madrid sit just four points behind early pacesetters Barcelona and hopes at the Bernabeu are high that their new boss can power the side back into the title race in the second half of the season.

Real look refreshed since sacking Julen Lopetegui after their 5-1 drubbing against Barcelona two weeks ago.

Real Madrid's Argentinian coach Santiago Solari stands on the sidelines during the UEFA Champions League group G football match Viktoria Plzen v Real Madrid in Plzen, Czech Republic on November 7, 2018.

Thibaut Courtois played his first UEFA Champions League game for Real Madrid against Viktoria Plzen.

The 42-year-old has won all four of his matches in charge at an aggregate score of 15-4.

Real Madrid's dressing room is littered with world-class players who are among the best in their respective positions and have won just about everything there is to win in the game of football at both club and global level.

If Solari gets a win at Celta, the former Madrid midfielder would present a strong case that the right move is for the club is to do nothing at all.

"It was a very complicated game and we also had setbacks with injuries, (but) we had personality and character".

"What I can say is that we are very happy (with Solari)", club spokesman Emilio Butragueno said.

Such amounts of success naturally come with a degree of pride, as footballers are very much as human as you and I (despite the media portrayals and stupendous display of wealth), subject to the same emotions as regular people.

Solari was only allowed two weeks as an interim coach according to Spanish regulations, meaning Sundays trip to Celta Vigo was always likely to precede a decision on his future.

"We are focusing on playing for our coach, we are prepared to die for him and we know that he is a great coach, we want him to continue", said defender Alvaro Odriozola on Sunday.
