Ex-Real Madrid chief Mijatovic won over by Solari

Former Real Madrid chief Pedja Mijatovic admits he's been impressed by Santiago Solari.

Solari is now winning plenty of plaudits thanks to Real's revival.

"[Solari] is proving to be a coach who can lead this team," he said to Radio MARCA.

"He has made some difficult decisions and he plays the line-up that he considers to be best.

"I thought [Gareth] Bale would play at the Camp Nou and I was surprised to see him choose Vinicius [Junior]."
