Solari snaps over Isco: “I’ve answered 100+ questions about him”

Real Madrid manager Santiago Solari showed his frustration over the ongoing questions in regards his refusal to play Isco

The Spanish playmaker made a rare start in the return leg of Real’s last-16 Copa del Rey tie at CD Leganes on Wednesday but couldn’t do anything to prevent them losing 1-0.

However, the result at Butarque had little effect on the outcome of the tie with Real progressing to the quarter-finals with a 3-1 aggregate win.

But, for Isco, doubts still remain on his long-term future at the Santiago Bernabeu with Solari opting to withdraw him from their last game in the 68th-minute for youngster Cristo Gonzalez Perez.

Speaking in a press conference today, ahead of Los Blancos’ La Liga game against Sevilla on Saturday, Solari finally snapped after enduring months of questions over Isco.

“I have answered more than 100 questions about Isco,” said Solari, according to FourFourTwo.

Kieran Trippier impresses for Atletico, whilst Spurs fans say, “Typical”

Kieran Trippier played well in his first La Liga game for Atletico Madrid, adding an assist to go with the performance. Former Burnley and Tottenham...

“He is a great player, like the rest, they all have the same options to play.”

Meanwhile, the future of Marcelo has recently been shrouded in doubt as well with the Brazilian having only started 11 times in La Liga this season.

But Solari wouldn’t budge and instead side-stepped the questions over Marcelo.

“Marcelo is the most decorated full-back in world football over the last decade,” he said.

“We work with all the players so that they are at their best.”

The game between Real Madrid and Sevilla will take place at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday with kick-off set for 16:15 (CET).
