Isco: "Nothing Is For Granted In This Club, You Need To Work"

Real Madrid's most promising signing of the season so far spoke to the media after the training session that took place at the Santiago Bernabéu.

Isco Alarcón's adaptation has not taken very long. The Spanish midfielder started every preseason game under Carlo Ancelotti and was one of the best Real Madrid players during those games. He even earned the call-up for the Spanish National Team's game against Ecuador, but he never got the chance to play. Still, Isco believes that he needs to keep working in order to get minutes for Real Madrid.

I really feel comfortable with the players around me. Everything has gone well for me in these days with Real Madrid. I don't think I'm already a starter for this team. Ancelotti has the last word and nobody is going to give you anything, you need to work.

The journalists asked him about Carlo Ancelotti as well:

He's very close to the players. He has the right philosophy for this club, he's the perfect coach for this roster, because he wants us to press high on the pitch and then keep control of the ball. The relationship with Zidane is good also. He always speaks to us before every game and gives us good advice.

Asked about the relationship with Özil, Isco said the following:

He's a great player, he knows where you want the ball and he puts it right there, it's always good to have players like him and Modric in the midfield, they know how to treat the ball well.

They also tried to get some words about Gareth Bale:

What do I think about him? I think that he's a great player. If he comes, we will welcome him.
