Isco must maintain his attitude despite losing a place in Real Madrid’s starting XI. This was stated by the former Madrid and Spain coach, Vicente del Bosque.
Since Santiago Solari was appointed as coach of Madrid to replace Julen Lopetegui who was fired, Isco’s fortune seemed to change.
Isco hasn’t even been given the chance to be a starter by Solari, only three times as a substitute. Isco was not even taken when Madrid faced AS Roma in the Champions League last week.
Isco was dropped, even though he was not injured. There was an issue that Isco’s relationship with Solari had begun to crack, even though Solari later denied it.
“Isco? The coach must do his job, while the player must know when he plays and why he doesn’t play,” Del Bosque said, as quoted by Goal International.
“He must maintain his attitude and set an example in the group.”
Isco started the season with two goals and one assist in ten appearances in all competitions, when Madrid were still trained by Lopetegui.
Under Solari, Isco only played for 78 minutes in three matches. His future in Madrid began to be doubted.
But Del Bosque hopes Isco can maintain his attitude and work hard to get a place in the team.
