The presence of Isco in the eleven headline Real Madrid in front of Atalanta surprised many. It is true that the reasons (having more the ball than the Italian team) were important for him to be among the chosen ones but his little participation in recent weeks invited us to think about a discreet performance of the Malaga player. One more.
However, with this slate movement, Zidane was able to reactivate Isco for the remainder of the season after a game in which, during the 76 minutes he was on the field, he was one of the best of the team, moving around many parts of the field and always asking for the ball.
And the thing is that the ‘22’ needed a push of this caliber. Feeling important at a key moment of the season and after a time when he seemed to be more on the outside than on the team.
With this performance and with the hope that it has meant a before and after in the football course of Isco, the player has an uncertain future ahead of him. He didn’t want to talk about it Zidane At the post-game press conference, nothing was assured after the game, but everything points to the fact that Isco he now has more options to stay than he did just a week ago.
