Real Madrid coach Solari hails young pair for derby win

Real Madrid coach Santiago Solari was delighted with his youngsters for their 3-1 win at Atletico Madrid.

Solari name-checked Vinicius Junior and Sergio Reguilon for the triumph.

On Vinicius, he began: "He's just 18 and he's got years ahead of him in the game. He can go as far as he likes in the years he's got left. He's a kid, some of us might have kids his age. He's just got here and of course he's getting better all the time. He's learning from the best and he's being well-advised and looked after by the rest of the team.

"Reguilón has set a precedent for all the youth team players, he shows that there is always a chance for them if you have talent, dedication and a hard-working outlook. With those you get into the first Real Madrid squad."
