That Super Cup performance is evidence enough.

Francisco Román Alarcón Suárez was an absolute ball of energy in Skopje tonight. His fanciful footwork that he displayed was brilliant. Because of this, he was able to draw more fouls than many could count.

All the hard work he showed in the game eventually paid off with a goal, a beautiful one at that. See here.

Isco was rewarded for his contributions to tonight’s victory by being named Man of the Match, deservedly so. Because of this performance tonight, manager Zidane must consider him as an everyday starter.

The sheer brilliance and talent of his footwork sparked much of the offense in the match. He was a huge reason why Real were up 2-0 and why they were so dominant against United. Real Madrid owes Isco many thanks for his service tonight, hopefully with a starting XI spot.

As to who he should replace, that’s another story. But, it’s glaringly clear that he is very much deserving of this honor. If tonight’s performance is any indicator, Isco and Madridistas are in for a great season. Now, let’s get him signed to a new contract!
