Real Madrid Coach Declines to Advise Isco on His Current Situation

MADRID – Real Madrid Argentine coach Santiago Solari said on Saturday Spain midfielder Francisco Alarcon, best known as Isco, is wise enough to figure out on his own how to deal with his current situation.

Isco has, apparently, fallen out of favor with Solari as he took part in just five league games since recovering from surgery to his appendix late 2018, and he has yet to play an entire 90 minutes under the Argentine coach, which triggered rumors about his future at Madrid.

“I’m nobody to be offering advice to anybody. They’re all experienced, have won titles and are established, top-flight players. A player who joins a first-tier club and spends a long time in the top tier has all the experience they need to know what they should do,” Solari said during a press conference on the eve of Sunday’s La Liga game against Real Betis.

“Isco is doing fine, just like all of the players who are training at the moment. We want the players who can’t train to recover because we need them back to give us more options,” he added.

However, Solari declined to reveal whether Isco would start the away league game against Real Betis.

Asked about the several injuries that have plagued the squad, Solari said, “I wouldn’t call it unfortunate, it’s all part and parcel of the job.”

The coach acknowledged that it was true that Madrid had “a long injury list,” and added that he would “take a critical approach.”

He said the club was keen to improve things and reduce the time the players took off on the sidelines. “We need them and they’re all important to us,” he added.

Gareth Bale, Marco Asensio, Toni Kroos, Marcos Llorente, Thibaut Courtois and Mariano Diaz have been recovering from their respective injuries and are expected to miss the Real Betis game.

Real Madrid hopes to bounce back after losing its most recent league match 2-0 to Real Sociedad on Jan. 6, having defeated Leganes 3-0 in the first leg of the Spanish Cup round of 16 three days later.
