Isco: ‘We must not become obsessed with the Champions League.’


Spanish playmaker Isco has told the UEFA Champions League magazine that Real Madrid must not become obsessed with winning the Champions League.

When asked if the current crop of Real Madrid players could win the tenth Champions League title that Los Blancos crave so greatly, the 21 year-old said: “I think it is a challenge for everyone and we are really excited by it. But it should not become an obsession because that can hinder the team.

“We have a great team, with the best [players] in the world: with Cristiano Ronaldo, Bale, Sergio Ramos and Xabi Alonso. Madrid have a historic standing, perhaps our opponents are a little bit scared just at the prospect of facing us,” he added.

When asked about how he felt about his start, Isco admitted he has actually surprised himself with how well his time at Madrid has begun: “I started playing very well in the league, scoring goals, giving assists, helping the team. I hope I can continue that way.”

The playmaker also spoke of how playing with Cristiano Ronaldo, who he describes as the ‘best player in the world’, has helped improve his game: “It’s great to play with him, he helps me in every training session because he always want to win and be the best.”
