Bernabéu ovation for Isco

"Isco, Isco, Isco... "

"I think Isco needs to look back at those games he played when he was given an ovation by the Bernabéu. That would help him rectify the situation he's in. Little over a year ago he was an undisputed first choice - not just at Real Madrid but with Spain too, and in that short space of time he's dropped to become a substitute. There is no doubt about his quality and talent - those are the qualities that brought him to Real Madrid in the first place. How did Isco win over the Bernabéu and his coach to deserve the status of being a first choice in the side? By showing quality and commitment in equal parts. Today, the level of quality and commitment he has been showing has been much lower and for that reason, with the high level of competition for places in the squad, he's lost his place. It would be a good idea for him to take a look back at some of the games he played at the Bernabéu, not so long ago, when they chanted his name for the sacrifice he showed. I think that would help him see the reality and do something about it".
