Zinedine Zidane has referred in a press conference to the current moment of Isco Alarcon. The man from Malaga hardly counts at the start of the season and the lights point to his form. The French coach has spoken about the issue before the game against him Valencia and he has made it clear that this is his decision. Touch of the technician to Isco.
“Isco has to keep working. It’s not his problem, it’s the coach’s problem that he has to choose. I insist with him that he has to keep working and do what he does,” Zidane said when asked why Isco doesn’t play. “It is true that lately he has not played much,” the French coach acknowledged to the media.
Regarding his confidence in Isco, he said the following: “There are complicated moments, but he has also experienced other good ones. He is a good player and I hope he continues to show it because we are going to have many games,” he explained about it.

Although Zidane was asked about Isco again and there he did send a more positive message: “It is the difficulty of the coach who has to choose and it is true that I have not done it (bet on him). It does not change anything I think of Isco and I hope he continues working. He will have his moment, “he settled on the issue.
Isco’s balance this season is very poor compared to others in which he has been under Zidane’s command. In the last five games his participation is reduced to 30 minutes against Huesca. Against Shakhtar, Barça, Gladbach and Inter he had to watch the game from the bench without participating in the game. Replaced at halftime against Cádiz, Isco has been singled out ever since.
Competition for Isco
Isco could have minutes against Valencia again. Although he does not point to the starting eleven, he can take advantage of the casualties of Casemiro and Eden Hazard, both positive for coronavirus, to come off the bench. Everything indicates that Zidane will bet on a trivote made up of Modric, Kroos Y Faith Valverde.
Of course, there is a factor that makes things even more difficult for Isco and that is the return of Martin Odegaard. The Norwegian is already recovered from his injury and Zidane has confirmed that he will enter the squad for tomorrow. Odegaard, like Isco, can play in the position of ’10’, so the competition for the Malaga player increases and he must react sooner rather than later so as not to fall further in the rotation.
