Zinedine Zidane has talked about the situation with Real Madrid absentees Marcelo and Isco.
“It is true that he has played less, we know what he can give us,” Zidane said of the Brazilian.
“It is true that Ferland has played very well, it is true that [Marcelo] has not played much lately. He is training very well and has to continue what he is doing. It is true that he hasn’t had a chance lately but it’s not his fault, we’ll see what happens later.”
Zidane also talked about Isco.
“Isco is going to be an important player, it is true that he is not playing much and I am not giving him the opportunity to show the player that he is. I feel sorry for my players and I will never forget what I have experienced with them.
“He has to work hard to get another chance, but what is being said [in the media] I can’t respond because we don’t control it.”
Real Madrid has finally turned around the tables this season after a mixed start which trickled down in between. They will be hoping to kick on from here.
