Cappa warns Solari: Keep it simple for Real Madrid fans

Argentine coach Angel Cappa has urged Santiago Solari not to confuse Real Madrid fans.

Solari assumed the leadership after the dismissal of Julen Lopetegui and in his first press conference summed up his football proposal with a phrase that caused surprise.

"The idea is to go to Melilla and play with two balls," he said.

That appeared to enrage Cappa, who thinks that Solari was merely toeing the party line.

"I didn't like it when they asked him what his idea of football or his style was and he said 'two balls and win,'" Cappa noted.

"I don't think that makes sense, and I believe he said what people want to hear and not what he does.

"I'm surprised he said that, but he's very naughty [...]

"I talked to him a long time ago, on a plane from Madrid to Buenos Aires, and I think he likes good football."
