Posted on July 02, 2013 by admin

There was quite a bit of surprise in the football world when Real Madrid confirmed that the young midfield star of Malaga and the Spain under 21 side, Isco, would be playing at the Santiago Bernabeu next season. That one of the best yound players in the world, especially if they are Spanish, moves to Real Madrid seems normal, but with Isco it was different.

For one thing, it seemed like his move to the English Premier League with Manchester City was almost complete. He had spoken about Manuel Pellegrini being his footballing father and moving to England. Also, Isco has previously spoken about his antipathy for Real Madrid. He spoke about the perceived arrogance of the Spanish giants and confessed to being a bit of an `Anti-Madridista`.

That is why the club president Florentino Perez, who usually does the negotiating, turned to the former player and new assistant to Ancelotti, Zinedine Zidane, to make the crucial phonecall to Isco. Zizou is a football legend, who all players respect, and he explained to Isco that not too many players are picked to sign for the biggest team in the world, and he should not let any personal opinions get in the way of his football career.

His next job may be to have a little word with Gareth Bale.
