Isco axed by Real Madrid for Solari bust-up

"The reason for not calling Isco today in Rome is a lack of respect for Solari, which could have occurred last weekend", he said. "We are here to do that, nothing else". The 42-year-old has explained why the playmaker was dropped by him and has stated that it was a sporting decision. There are no starters, or substitutes, in football. The players are here to give everything and be at 100 percent so they can be picked.

Isco came off the bench to replace Luka Modric in Real's 3-0 defeat to Eibar in their last La Liga outing, but refused to shake hands with boss Santiago Solari after the game, according to Marca.

In Lyon, City took a point from a pulsating match after David Cornet scored two second-half goals including an outstanding long-range effort only for the French side to be pinned back each time.

"It was something we talked about with Jorge Mendes. He trains very well everyday, which is why he can play like this".

Isco watched from the Olimpico stands as Real won 2-0.

The Wales global has continually been linked with a move back to the Premier League, with Manchester United understood to have held a long-term interest in signing the 29-year-old. And in the second half we played very well, played ball like we normally do.

The first half featured no goals but had one unbelievable blunder.

"That is football, it can be frustrating sometimes when things are not quite coming off", he said. I closed the keeper down and he made not a great clearance. "Luckily enough it came off for me, and I could get the first goal, which was crucial for us". We have to keep fighting every game, no matter what position we were in. "We are grown-ups, fathers with families, we know what we have to do".
