Isco increasingly frustrated at Real Madrid

Isco is becoming increasingly frustrated at Real Madrid.

The midfielder was left on the bench for the thrashing of Deportivo La Coruna on Sunday - and he did not even warm up during the game.

AS says Real's Copa tie with Leganes could be decisive in the future of Isco. Should coach Zinedine Zidane choose not to start him, it could be the final straw for the playmaker.

Isco is tied to Real until 2022, but is fed up with the lack of a regular first team run he's been granted by Zidane this season.

The coach took issue over questions about Isco this week: "I do not think I've played him less, you ask strange things, Isco is very important, he has played many games with me and then I have to make decisions and make a team. And it's not easy, but it's my job."
