KOMPAS.com – Real Madrid player Dani Ceballos revealed the reason the team coach, Santiago Solari, did not give many opportunities to play for one of his star players, Isco.
Isco last played in Real Madrid's 1-5 defeat to Barcelona at the end of October 2018. However, he has never played since Santiago Solari became the coach replacing Julen Lopetegui who was fired after the defeat of arch-rivals Real Madrid.

According to Ceballos, Solari said that Isco had not fully recovered after undergoing appendicitis.
"Isco has just suffered a serious injury and underwent surgery. In Julen Lopetegui's coaching period, Isco played two games in a row. On the other hand, Santiago Solari considered Isco not yet in the best performance despite training," said Ceballos.
Ceballos is optimistic that Solari will find a way to return Isco to Real Madrid's list of starters.
"Solari understands the importance of managing dressing rooms. He also has a philosophy that matches the values of Real Madrid," he continued. (Lariza Oky Adisty)
