Isco: We want to achieve great things at Real Madrid


Spanish playmaker Isco has told Marca that Real Madrid are looking to capitalise on their summer signings by winning trophies this year.

Los Blancos are still in all three competitions this season, and already look to have one foot in the Copa Del Rey final after Wednesday night’s 3-0 semi-final first leg win over Atletico Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu.

“I hope to experience some great moments in the world of football, and we’re hoping to achieve big things this season,” he said.

Real Madrid spent in excess of €150million last summer on players like Gareth Bale, Asier Illaramendi, Dani Carvajal and Isco himself.

The club has made a huge effort with these signings to finally secure La Decima, it’s tenth European cup, and surge ahead of Barcelona and city rivals Atletico in the league.

The 21 year-old was also forced to deny that he is unhappy in the Spanish capital after being left out of the team in recent weeks as manager Carlo Ancelotti switched to a 4-3-3 formation.

Isco told the Spanish newspaper: “I’m very happy with the way things are going for me. It’s true that I’m playing less but I’m here to help out.

“Every coach I’ve had has told me that if I took care of myself and kept a level head, I would go a long way and it has been far from easy to get this far,” he added.
