Real Madrid reportedly tell Isco that he will need to lose weight in order to earn a regular place back in the first-team squad.
Real Madrid midfielder Isco has allegedly been informed that he must start to lose weight in order to earn a recall to the starting lineup.
Isco has enjoyed an impressive spell with Real since 2013, but the 26-year-old underwent an operation for acute appendicitis in September and the playmaker is yet to regain full fitness.
The Spaniard has made five appearances since the back end of October but according to OKDario, the player is currently not in the good books of the players and staff.
Eduardo Inda – director of the news outlet – is quoted as saying: “Isco’s situation is unsustainable. He’s not in the coach’s favour nor the dressing room’s anymore. They’ve had a word because he’s still overweight.
“They speak about him being overweight, but the problem is also that he’s clashing with the heavyweights in the dressing room.”
Isco is currently a part of the Spain squad preparing to face Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
