Real Madrid Manager Zinedine Zidane has responded to Isco’s unhappy comments about lack of playing time at Real Madrid. Isco starred in Spain’s international friendly against Argentina as his hatrick helped the Spanish side thrash the South Americans 6-1 which led to Leo Messi leaving the stadium early to avoid further embarrassment.
After scoring a fantastic hatrick, Isco later revealed his unhappiness about being on the bench for Madrid stating that Real Madrid doesn’t give him confidence.
However, Zidane has responded to Isco’s comments about being unhappy at Madrid. Zidane’s Real Madrid face Las Palmas tomorrow and in the pre match press conference Zidane talked about the Isco issue.
Zidane confirmed that Isco will not be travelling with the team for their game against Las Palmas.
“Isco has discomfort and therefore cannot travel with us.”
Later, Zidane also discussed about Isco’s unhappy comments about being on the bench for Real Madrid. Zizou said:
“I am not unfair to Isco. Maybe he doesn’t have the same role here, but I have shown to him that he is an important player for the team.”
“I am very happy with Isco. I always look to do things for the good of the team and the good of the players.”
“What I say about Isco is that he always kills himself. The problem isn’t Isco. The problem is that I have 25 players and can only play 11.”
“Isco is a player that I like and, what he does, he does well.”
Lets see if these comments from Zidane can settle the unhappiness of Isco or not or else we can see him moving out of Madrid very soon.
