Real Madrid news: Gareth Bale demand issued by Santiago Solari | Football | Sport

Solari might only be in temporary charge at the Bernabeu, after the Real hierarchy ran out of patience with Julen Lopetegui, but that has not stopped him trying to address the problems he sees in the dressing room.

Real have not started this season at all well by their own high standards.

They are currently sixth in La Liga after 11 games and seven points behind league leaders Barcelona, who have also nearly already scored twice as many goals as their rivals.

Solari, who is preparing to take his team to Celta Vigo on Sunday, is putting the onus on his players to impress and wants Bale to produce “great” performances every game.

“I’ve liked what I’ve seen of him in every position,” Solari said.

“He’s capable of operating down the left, on the right or up front or in the number 10 role or even as left wing-back.

“What he has to do is steal the show every time he takes to the pitch.

“Just like he did the other night against Viktoria Plzen, when he produced a great performance.”

Real beat Plzen 5-1 on Wednesday in their Champions League Group G game.

Under Solari Los Blancos have three wins from three and the Argentine could be in line for the permanent position with Real.

“You’ve got to go out and play every game and do a lot of good things to win them,” Solari said.

“This is a sport that involves all of us.

“Players, coaches and staff at all levels of the club want to do everything in their control to ensure that things run smoothly.”
