Isco's tweet after video appears to show him 'ignoring' Real Madrid staff member


Isco's time at Real Madrid this season hasn't exactly been great.

The little Spanish playmaker was one of Zinedine Zidane's favoured attacking weapons during his short stint as manager of the club.

However, under new boss Santiago Solari, Isco has found game time incredibly hard to come by.

Teenage phenomenon Vinicius Junior and Lucas Vazquez are well ahead of him in the pecking order, with Isco not completing 90 minutes since December 12.

In Los Blancos' 3-0 win over Deportivo Alaves on Sunday night, Isco played just three minutes.

And a video done the rounds on social media after appearing to show the midfielder ignoring a Real Madrid member of staff.

Miguel Porlan Noguera, commonly referred to as 'Chendo', tried to congratulate him as he walked off the pitch, but Isco simply dodged his attempt.

You can watch the footage below.


It looked pretty damning, but Isco has since posted a tweet which appears to clear up any wrongdoing.


The translated tweet reads: "No doubt a great person, is a joke of ours, in a video of 3 seconds do not understand it! Hug Gentlemen! 😬"

Well, that clears that one up.

Whether Isco remains at Real Madrid past the summer is another thing entirely, with Solari clearly not a fan of his output on the pitch.

The Spaniard would have a long list of potential suitors, as Manchester City and Barcelona have both enquired about his service before.

Isco on the ball

A week or so ago, Solari was asked about his 'battle' with Isco behind-the-scenes, but the Argentine manager issued a rather defiant response.

"The only battle that exists is that of the next match," Solari responded, per Marca.

While there may be no personal issues between the pair, Isco at 26-years-old simply need regular playing time and unless a new manager comes in, he will need to move on.
