Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane was delighted with Isco’s performance against home side Sporting Gijon. The manager hailed the midfielder who scored two crucial goals and grabbed all three points. Isco spent all minutes on field and thanks to his team mate Alvaro Morata whose second equalizer brought Real Madrid back into the game. It was 10th game in this season of La Liga in which Real Madrid claimed victory in remaining 10 minutes of the game. Let’s take a look on what Zidane actually said about Isco’s performance.
Zidane: I am happy with how Isco played
In post match interview, Zidane said “Isco played a great game. I am happy with how he played, he made the difference, his goals got us the three points. Isco is a great player and he has shown that Madrid is where he belongs. He has shown with his performance that he is a great player.”
Zidane also expressed how difficult it is to bench such players saying “If I have been unfair to Isco I have been unfair to all who do not play. In the end we are 24 players and everyone can play outside of Real Madrid. This is the difficulty of this position, to put good players on the bench from time to time.”
