Real Madrid midfielder Isco: Zidane? The change starts now

Real Madrid midfielder Isco admits he feels he has a fresh chance with Zinedine Zidane back as coach.

The Spain international has struggled to impress with his performances this season and he didn't enjoy much playing time under his former coach Santiago Solari.

"LaLiga Santander is very difficult, but we will try to add all the points we can," he said during an Adidas event.

"The change starts now, and we need the fans at our side.

"There are maximum demands on this team and we have to fight for all the titles.

"It has not been our best year, but from now on we work to be where the club's history deserves, which forces us to come back stronger."

Isco went on to express his approval of Zidane's return to the club.

"We all know him and we know what he was like as a player and as a coach," he added.

"It's good news for everyone that he has returned, as he loves Real Madrid and he has shown it with this decision."
