Solari on Madrid’s 13 Champions Leagues: “It’s our legacy, more than a challenge, it’s a pride for all of us and now we’re this club’s present and we want to continue building the future because the club always looks proudly at its past but always has its eyes on the future.” pic.twitter.com/CcCwu03m3e— SB (@Realmadridplace) February 10, 2019
Asked what came to mind when he thought of the challenge of winning a fourth straight title, the head coach told UEFA: "That nothing is impossible for Real Madrid," as quoted by FourFourTwo.
Real Madrid will make the trip to Ajax for the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie on Wednesday. Solari has full faith in his squad of champions but is also aware of Ajax's quality, who became the kings of Europe in 1995.
"Ajax are very well known for their work in the youth system, for their commitment to young talent and their offensive football," he said.
"That's the way they still work, with a team that has already shown that it was competitive last year and that it remains competitive this year."
"The tie is going to be difficult, like all these occasions in the Champions League," he concluded.
Following Wednesday's Champions League clash, Madrid will take on Girona in La Liga on Sunday afternoon.
