Isco: 'Others may be better than me'

Real Madrid attacker Isco is not concerned despite being left out of Julen Lopetegui's starting XI for the last two La Liga matches.

Real Madrid attacker Isco has insisted that he is not concerned despite being left out of Julen Lopetegui's starting XI for the Spanish outfit's last two La Liga matches.

Isco started the league affairs with Getafe and Girona but has been forced to come off the bench in the team's last two matches against Leganes and Athletic Bilbao.

The Spain international made a scoring contribution off the bench in the 1-1 draw with Bilbao on Saturday night, and commented on his position in the squad after the match.

"The team isn't just me. There are other players who may be better than me and that's why the coach names his XI. All that stuff about Lopetegui choosing Isco and 10 others was what you [journalists] said," Isco told reporters.

Isco has managed one goal and one assist in five appearances for Madrid in all competitions this season.
