Real Madrid coach Zidane: Isco must have patience

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is happy with the current form of Isco.

Real Madrid meet Real Sociedad on Monday night.

The Frenchman explained that he only has a limited number of minutes to give out and that there are many players, even more now given that some have recovered from injury.

"I have to distribute the available minutes, which isn't easy for a coach," Zidane said in his press conference on Sunday, ahead of the Monday night match in LaLiga Santander.

"But, we're always going to count on Isco. It's not Isco's fault [if he doesn't play].

"He can play in two or three positions and not in 40 positions.

"He's working hard and he needs to have patience, ready to go out and perform like he did the other day."
