Isco Lacking Confidence in Madrid

Struggling to get regular starting spot at Real Madrid so far this season, Isco found himself shinning brightly on his stint with Spain national team during recent international break.

The former Malaga midfielder putting on a show on La Roja’s latest friendly win against Argentina by scoring a hat-trick and admitting that his feeling more confident while playing for his nation.

Sharing his thought to the media in a recent interview, Isco was not shy in admitting that he hasn’t been playing with much beliefs and confidence with Madrid this season.

That situation is completely different when he put on the Spain jersey as he felt strong support and trust from La Roja’s head coach, Julen Lopetegui, while it’s the opposite with Zinedine Zidane at Madrid.

However, Isco didn’t just put the blame on Zidane as the midfielder thinks that it might just be his fault for not being able to acquire the French tactician’s confidence.

Certainly an interesting statement made by the Spanish international as it could spark potential transfer rumors next summer, especially if things doesn’t change much regarding his playing time at Madrid.

Notably, Isco certainly hope that his statement won’t be taken in the wrong way by Zidane, because the Spaniard will certainly need to keep any playing time available for him ahead of the World Cup 2018.
