Isco has long been out of the starting lineup for Real Madrid.
coach Zinedine Zidane stressed thatIsco
must continue to train and try to get the opportunity to play.
The Spanish star has been in the starting line-up in just 29 of 88 games since the start of the 2018-19 season and has lost his place in the team under Zidane. He has not played in any of Real Madrid's last three crucial games against Sevilla, Monchengladbach, and Atletico Madrid. It has previously been reported that after Real's victory over Barcelona, Isco criticized Zidane for not playing him and not giving him a chance.
Real have been forced to sell many players due to the economic crisis caused by the coronavirus, and if Los Blancos intend to make big purchases next summer, they will have to sell some players. However, Zidane stressed that Isco is one of the most important players in his team and should continue his efforts to get a chance to play.
The French coach told reporters:
"Isco is going to be an important player, it is true that he is not playing much and I am not giving Isco the opportunity to show the player that he is.
"I feel sorry for my players and I will never forget what I have lived with. He has to work hard to have another chance, but what is being talked about I can't say anything because we do not control him."
