During a press conference ahead of Spain’s upcoming national clashes in the UEFA Nations League, Isco said Real Madrid forwards Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema have improved after Ronaldo’s departure, reports Efe.
“Obviously, Cris (Ronaldo) is an extraordinary player who secured the team 50 goals per season, but we know how soccer is if we win people will say that we do not miss him and, if we lose, then we are missing him,” Isco told the press.
Isco noted the improvement he and his colleagues have made under new head coach Julen Lopetegui.
“Now, we play very well as a team. There are players that last year did not score as many goals as they are (scoring now). For now, we do not miss him (Ronaldo), but we have just started (the season). I wish we continue the same way and I (hope) it goes well with him in Juve,” Isco said.
