He did not take it badly. On the contrary. It was with a sympathetic look that Zinedine Zidane commented latest words from Isco. The midfielder to Real Madrid cheated on Saturday about his poor playing time, before clasico won on Barça’s lawn (1-3). The program “El Partizado”, which is broadcast on the Movistar + channel, captured the film at Camp Nou. Installed in the empty spaces of the Catalan arena, the Spanish international spoke to several of his partners.
To complain with a smile over the few minutes that Zinedine Zidane currently offers him. “If he has to replace me, he takes me out in the 50s or 60s, sometimes at half time. If he has to take me in, he does it in the 80s,” the 28-year-old said under his mask.
Nothing that irritates Zizou. On the contrary. “It’s ambition,” coach Merengue replied on Monday the day before travel to Mönchengladbach in the Champions League (21 at RMC Sport). He wants to play, like all players, and that is positive. The players always want to play and it is not up to them. What they have to do is work to be ready. Then I make the decision to make eleven and be able to change it afterwards. And that will not change. “
Since the resumption, Isco has only started on two occasions, without ever playing more than an hour on the field. It did not come into play during the success in Barcelona.
