Santi Solari gives his assessment of Melilla romp & stomp
- Argentine boss notes that the two-leg score shows how much the team are committed to winning
- He admits that playing Melilla was not a stroll in the park, as Segunda team did show their worth by playing some good football at times
Madrid were not always comfortable playing Segunda or Tercera teams in the Copa recently and Solari noted that 10 goals scored across the two legs shows how everyone within the squad appears to be committed and focused on their jobs:
"It shows us that there are many players who are in good form, very committed, and have played a solid game with joy in attack," he said. "Melilla are top of their Segunda B group, that is a tough competition.
"You do not score 10 goals in those two games without doing your job well, the more experienced players, the younger senior squad members, and the kids who had a chance to make their debuts today."
Madrid eased to a 10-1 aggregate which saw Los Blancos progress to the round of 16 thanks to two braces from senior stars Isco and Marco Asensio, as well as a fine volley from the young defender Javi Sanchez and Brazilian starlet Vinicius Junior's effort.
