Real Madrid manager Zidane wants Isco to step up his game

Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane said that he wants to see more scoring from Isco after the midfielder struck his first league goal this season in the victory against Osasuna, as per Goal.

The Sunday encounter at the El Sadar Stadium saw Jagoba Arrasate’s side get the opener through Unai Garcia before Isco leveled the scores in what later became a comfortable 4-1 victory for the Los Blancos.

This important victory means the Santiago Bernabeu side have maintained their three-point lead over rivals Barcelona at the top of the La Liga table.

Zidane’s side gave a strong response to the 4-3 defeat against Real Sociedad in the Copa del Rey quarter-final that eliminated them out of the competition.

The 27-year-old joined the Spanish side in 2013 from Malaga and has so far earned 198 league appearances and scored 36 goals for his club.

He has scored two goals for the Madrid club this season across all competitions, with 20 total appearances to his name.

Real Madrid manager hailed the midfielder’s performance against Osasuna but conceded he wanted the player to be scoring more often.

He said as per Goal:

“I don’t think anything has changed. Isco’s an important player in this squad,” the Madrid head coach told a news conference.

“He’s a player that always gives everything when he plays. He’s a good footballer. I like the way he plays. He’s technical and skillful. He’s very important for us.

“He had a brilliant game like everyone else, but above all I am happy about his goal, because he needs to score more goals.”
