Isco: I don't know how to win Zidane's confidence

On a personal level, it was his first hat trick as a professional; he also becomes the first Spain player in history to score three past a World Cup-winning nation.

Real Madrid star Isco is willing to reject summer offers from Manchester United and Arsenal in order to secure a move to Manchester City and work under Pep Guardiola, according to a report from the Sun.

"I haven't learnt anything new with Isco's performances, I'm so pleased to have him with us".

"I'm so pleased to have him with us".

Attacking Midfielder Isco led the rout on a Lionel Messi devoid Argentina as Spain crushed their side 6-1.

Goals from Iago Aspas, Thiago Alcantara and Diego Costa, added to Isco treble, giving Spain the flawless warm-up for this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.


"In Madrid I don't have the confidence a player needs, " Isco said in a post-match interview, as quoted by Spanish media outlet Marca. "My intention is to continue working, get the most out of myself so that when the coach gives me opportunities I can take advantage of it".

"(Spain coach Julen) Lopetegui shows me confidence with the minutes he gives me. "Of course, I want to show Zidane I can be counted on".

It remains to be seen on whether this has any bearing on whether Isco will seek the Santiago Bernabeu exit door. Clearly there's been a complete breakdown in communication between the two.

The 25-year-old has been in and out of Los Blancos' starting lineup this term, despite a positive return of five goals and five assists in La Liga, and has admitted his displeasure at often being overlooked.
