Solari: Marcelo is a club icon
The pressing question ahead of the European clash is who will start at left-back for Los Blancos. Solari was uncertain, saying: "I don't know whether Marcelo or Reguilon will play. I still can't respond, we still have to train on Tuesday. We will decide before the match. But Marcelo is a club great. He's our vice-captain, he's a club icon. He always puts Real Madrid before everything else. He's training very well, along with the rest of the team."
During the press conference, Solari appeared keen to stop talking about individuals and preferred to talk about the team in general.. "When you lose everything is bad but when you win everything is good. The important thing is the next match. We can't control what is said about us. It happens to both coaches and players."
As for the upcoming clash with Ajax in Amsterdam, the Argentine had pride in talking about his history with Madrid as a player. "We have great memories of this stadium. I don't think Ajax are going through a bad period. I just don't believe it. I think they're having a great season."
