Real Madrid sack Julen Lopetegui with Santiago Solari announced as interim manager.

Santiago Solari has been thrust straight into the deep end at Real Madrid.

The 42-year-old, who spent five years at the club as a player, has been promoted from the Madrid B team to take the reigns of the senior side following the sacking of Julen Lopetegui on Monday.

Solari takes over at a time of immense upheaval at the club, with Real having been thumped 5-1 by Barcelona on Sunday, and also struggling for form without the goals of Cristiano Ronaldo.
