"In Brazil, we're like that", he explained in his post-match interview.
Solari also addressed Isco's Instagram post in which the attacking midfielder asked fans if he looked overweight, and took the opportunity to speak on the importance of team selection. "They're top of their group in Segunda B. Scoring 10 goals in two games isn't easy and I'm thrilled for everyone who was involved today". According to a report from OK Diario, the reigning European champions would only allow the former Malaga star to leave for a whopping €700 million. I've got no issue with them rotating if they do so in an orderly manner and do their bit defensively. The Malaga native has seen a huge decrease in involvement, and was even left out of the squad entirely by Solari, most notably against Roma at the Stadio Olympico in the Champions League. I like to give the players freedom.
"I was very sorry that he missed the goal in the first half, because it would have been a great one".
The soon returning Brazilian would find it hard to break back into the team, as Llorente started his third successive game, completing a good 45 before being subbed off by Solari, who must've had the clash against Huesca in mind. We're happy to have him back playing and looking comfortable. We need eleven players and a part of my job is to choose the ones that play. Also making his first appearance since returning from injury was Jesus Vallejo, who played alongside youngster, Javi Sanchez, at the heart of the Madrid defense.
