I will not give up: Solari

Santiago Solari insisted he would not resign as coach of Real Madrid despite his team being dumped out of the Champions League last 16 by Ajax on Tuesday. Madrid were thrashed 4-1 at home to lose the tie 5-3 on aggregate and fail to reach the competition's quarterfinals for the first time since 2010. It means they have been knocked out of the Copa del Rey, La Liga's title race and now Europe in the space of seven days. Solari was handed a contract until 2021 when he took over from Julen Lopetegui in November but the humiliating defeat means he may not last the season, let alone beyond the summer. "I did not come to the club in such a difficult moment to give up," Solari said after the game. "Clearly we have given it our all but we have not managed to go through."
