The European Champions Real Madrid have surrendered to Santiago the Solari contract as the first team coach by June 2021, according to a statement released Tuesday.

The 42-year-old Argentine led the team to four wins in four games since taking over as a temporary manager instead of former Spanish coach Julen Lopetegui two weeks ago.

Solari enjoyed the best start of any coach in the history of the club, and his appointment as a permanent manager was approved by the Spanish Football Association (RFEF) on Monday.

He played for Real from 2000 to 2005 in the Galacticos period with Zinedine Zidane, who became a club coach and won three Champions League titles before leaving.
Solari has led Real's reserve team since 2016 until he took over from Lopetegui last month after a bad club club culminated in a painful Barcelona 5-1 defeat El Clasico.

He led a win against Melilla in Copa del Rey, Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League, Real Valladolid and Celta Vigo in La Liga.

Lopetegui was released after Madrid dropped to ninth place in the domestic standings. However, after Sunday's victory at Celi at 4-2, the club is sixth, four points behind Barcelona's leader.
