Conte finally reveals why he did not take Real Madrid job

However, it has been revealed that former manager Zinedine Zidane turned down a move back to Real Madrid a little over two weeks ago, with reports emerging from FOX Sports saying the same.

Real Madrid chief Emilio Butragueno says management is delighted with the impact of caretaker coach Santiago Solari.

Real Madrid travel to the Galician city of Vigo, to take on Celta Vigo at the Balaidos Stadium on Sunday evening in a fixture corresponding the twelfth match day of La Liga Santander.

Real Madrid are now on a four-game winning run with the likes of Karim Benzema, Vinicius Junior and a few others finding their shooting boots.

Lucas Vazquez has laughed off talk of a crisis at Real Madrid, with the supposedly out-of-sorts Blancos only four points adrift of Barcelona.

Madrid managed to ride it out and killed the game off as a contest with a late "Panenka" penalty from captain Sergio Ramos and a thunderous strike from Dani Ceballos in stoppage time, although Brais Mendez struck a late consolation goal for Celta.

Interim boss Solari oversaw a fourth consecutive win since succeeding the sacked Julen Lopetegui last month - and could now be handed the Real reins full-time.

Trump's new justice chief assailed over anti-Mueller stance
Bush when she was speaker a decade ago on taxes and other issues, and she welcomed the chance to do so again with Trump. A Justice Department spokeswoman told the Journal that Whitaker was "not aware of any fraudulent activity".

"The most important thing is to do whatever is necessary for the good of the team, nothing else matters", he told reporters when asked if he expected to be given the job.

But Solari was upset with forceful Celta challenges, which often went unpunished.

"There is no doubt that he came at a very particular moment and has been able to achieve very good results".

"It was a very complicated game and we also had setbacks with injuries, (but) we had personality and character".

"We have very good players and the team is getting better and better, we took advantage of our chances and we are very happy, we must continue in this way", he said.

An "easy" run of games has allowed Madrid to regain their confidence in front of goal, with Karim Benzema bagging three goals in his last two matches, having gone on a run of eight games without finding the net under Lopetegui.
