Isco is surprisingly becoming a vital player for Real Madrid. Despite the bad start of the season and the substitute’s role, Isco started to feature in the starting lineup after several injuries, and the Spaniard didn’t waste his chance.
He was given the No.10 role against Atletico Madrid alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema, and Zidane’s choice brought the expected benefits.
Ahead of Sporting CP match, Zidane praised the playmaker and his attitude.
“Isco’s position is behind the striker as a No.10. It is where he is best, but he can play in many positions. He is doing phenomenally,” the French coach said during the press conference.
It’s highly possible to see Isco at the same position today in the evening, when Real Madrid play Sporting in a UCL group stage match.
