Zidane: Reports on Isco are lies

Real Madrid Coach Zinedine Zidane has hit out at reports suggesting he would sanction Isco’s exit from the club.

Reports in Spain suggested the Frenchman was unhappy with the playmaker’s application and would allow him to leave should the club be able to sign Chelsea star Eden Hazard.

“I want Isco to spend the rest of his career here,” Zidane told reporters on Friday.

“My position on him will not change – he is an excellent footballer and he has shown this on a consistent basis, it is as simple as that.

“So yes, the reports (in El Chiringuito) are lies.

“The match against Real Sociedad? We have the idea of playing a strong game but it will be difficult against a tough opponent, but we will try for three points.”
