Zinedine Zidane hits back at Isco after Real Madrid comments


Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has hit back at Isco after he questioned his future at the Bernabeu after a hat-trick with Spain this week.

The midfielder impressed during a game with his national side having struggled at club level this season.

The player then questioned his future at Real Madrid after the game, claiming it is almost impossible to win Zidane’s confidence.

Though, the Bernabeu boss has hit back at the player by claiming that he is not ‘an unfair person’.

‘I think what he said is open to interpretation.

‘Maybe he has a different role with Spain to here, but he’s important, I’ve always felt he’s important for this team and it’s only natural a player wants to play more.

But my job is to pick 11 players. He is an important one and will be an important one, always.

As I said, it comes down to interpretation, but I’m not upset at all with Isco.

‘I’m happy with his performances, it was a very impressive performance [against Argentina] and Spain impressed too.

Isco is a Real Madrid player and he’ll remain here. That’s it.

‘It’s not his fault. Isco, whenever he plays, he works hard, gives 100 percent – he kills himself.
