Isco Alarcón is currently one of the best players of the world. He was helping the team with great performances during the last month, especially against Sporting Gijón, but when Gareth Bale got injured in El Clásico, the Spaniard stood up and showed all his quality.
Now, no one doubts that Isco Alarcón should play the final of the Champions League on the 3rd of June against Juventus even if Gareth Bale is recovered. The playmaker is helping the team with the new formation 4-4-2 and now Real Madrid are playing better than ever. However, Los Blancos are now focused on winning La Liga, the next step.
Zidane’s side will travel to Málaga on Sunday to win La Liga. After the victory at Balaídos (1-4), one point should be enough to lift the trophy at La Rosaleda, Isco’s home. The playmaker was born in the little town Arroyo de la Miel, close to Benalmádena, a coast town very close to Málaga, in the touristic Costa del Sol.
Isco started to be well-known with Málaga when Manuel Pellegrini, former Manchester City coach, was the manager of the team. They were able to reach the Champions League quarter-finals, but Borussia Dortmund kick them out of the competition in the very last minute with a goal in offside. Isco Alarcón was one of the stars of the team, with Van Nistelrooy, Cazorla or Monreal.
Real Madrid put the eye on Isco Alarcón and they paid €30M for the Spanish midfielder. Now Isco has to come back home and win La Liga trophy on the pitch at La Rosaleda. He’s still very appreciated among Málaga supporters and it could be a very special day for Isco to win his first La Liga trophy in his hometown.
Besides, Málaga city is known for having many Real Madrid supporters. Juanito, Real Madrid legendary player, was born in Fuengirola, a town 25km away from Málaga. Now Málaga’s coach is Míchel, another Real Madrid legend. Hopefully, Isco, a legend for Málaga supporters, is able to win the trophy in his town.
