“If Isco has magic, then why is this midfielder not the first choice at Real Madrid“, journalist Sid Lowe began his post on ESPN with such skeptical pepper.
The land star of bullfighting is probably absorbing pain. He refused to listen to Mr. Manuel Pellegrini’s teacher when he refused the opportunity to come to Man City and chose Real as a stop, and then sank in 2020.
Alert for Isco
Isco’s dark moments, “journalist Sergio Santos Chozas said of the Spanish midfielder in an AS post. 178 minutes of play from the beginning of the 2020/21 season is turning the former Malaga player into the most expensive redundant of “Los Blancos” AS has more minutes to play for Alvaro Odriozola than Eden Hazard, Martin Odegaard, Alvaro Odriozola, and Mariano Diaz the Spaniard was completely healed.
In the Champions League, Isco has not yet been allowed to play by coach Zidane. On October 26, former midfielder Malaga complained but did not speak directly to the French captain. Instead, he confided in his teammates. “If he wants to let me off, he pulls me out in the 50 or 60th minute. Sometimes it’s during the break. If he wants to put me on the pitch, he will do it in the 80th minute.” Movistar + channel analyzes Isco’s image when he talks with his teammates before the super classic match against Barca in the 7th round of La Liga.
In Real’s dressing room, the players once gave Isco the nickname “Magic”. It is not easy to have that around big names like Karim Benzema, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, and earlier including Cristiano Ronaldo.
A reporter once wrote about Isco: “When Isco started to play football, we began to enjoy an artistic football“. Or as midfielder Koke once described his teammate possessing “very great” qualities.
Those compliments became meaningless when Isco, 28 years old, has yet to be upgraded despite being with Real for 8 years. It is the complete opposite of Marcelo, Raphael Varane, or Thibaut Courtois, who succeed in ascending a new ladder of stature.
What future for Isco?
Coach Carlo Ancelotti once described Isco as a player with “great qualities” and suitable for the striker role in a tree diagram (4-1-2-1-2). However, Isco appeared at the time when Real had a boom of good strikers with Ronaldo, Bale and Benzema.
Currently, Ronaldo and Bale no longer play for “Los Blancos”. However, coach Zidane has Eden Hazard, Vinicius Junior or Marco Asensio, making Isco unable to step into the representative squad of Madrid.
What you experience with Isco in the 2020/21 season, he seems to be out of the plan of coach Zidane. This threatens the future of the Spanish midfielder in the national team, especially the Euro final round which will take place in 2021.
In early November, Everton coach Carlo Ancelotti once opened to recruit Isco. In 2013, the Spanish midfielder was also the first contract signed by the Italian strategist to the Bernabeu.
Season 2020/21, Everton is living under the breath of James Rodriguez. However, only the creativity of each Colombian midfielder is not enough to help the Merseyside representative “make a storm” in the Premier League.
Coach Ancelotti needs more quality cards, especially creative midfielders. Sports Mail believes Isco will become the right piece for the Italian strategist to build the perfect tree diagram.
Summer 2020, Everton has a strong transformation. They recruited many names, including James Rodriguez. However, that is not enough to help coach Ancelotti build a formidable team.
