Santiago Solari praises out of favour Isco after Copa del Rey double

Solari is glad for Isco's outstanding performance against Melilla

Real Madrid's newly-appointed manager Santiago Solari has made the decision to relegate Isco to a secondary role at Real Madrid, and this could only mean one thing: the reigning champions of Europe look set to part ways with the talented playmaker as soon as the chance arises. There are 24 players in the squad, plus those who are at Castilla.

"This Thursday there is a match and many players will come, we want to see several [younger] players on the field".

"The first leg was very good because we put in a very good performance with a good attitude and intensity, against a team that play very good football and are top of their group in Segunda B", Solari said.

The game, as well as the tie, was effectively over six minutes before the break when Asensio turned provider to allow Sanchez to help himself to a third, and Melilla's hopes of keeping matters respectable were deal a further blow within two minutes of the restart when skipper Isco blasted home from distance.

At stumps on day four Williamson was not out on 139 and Nicholls not out 90 with the Black Caps 272-4 - an overall lead of 198. Nicholls could have been out lbw on three but Pakistan neglected to asked for a review after a Shah-led appeal was declined.

"I am very happy for [Isco], for those goals, I was a bit sorry for the first that the keeper saved in the first half, which would have been a golazo", Solari said at the postmatch news conference.

The pair are likely to start alongside Ballon d'Or victor Luka Modric in the midfield trio on Sunday. "The focus has to be on him". "He deserved this prize after a marvellous year with Madrid and the Croatian nation team".

"It comes at a time of maturity in his career". Vinicius and Marco Asensio would play alongside each other when they take on Melilla on Thursday. It seems to me that at that age it's more handsome because he can truly value it. Two very important La Liga games for us and the Champions League too.
