Did Isco refuse to warm up during Real Madrid’s game against Granada?
According to Miguel Angel Diaz of Cope’s Tiempo de Juego, Isco was annoyed when Luka Jovic and Eduardo Camavinga were called to go onto the pitch. The Frenchman had gone to warm up at the same time as Isco, and the Spaniard was unhappy.
When he was told to keep warming up, he was angered and took the decision to go to the bench and ignore the instructions of the coaching team.
Once he got back to the bench he spoke with the coaching staff. In order to calm things down and prevent an unnecessary fallout on a comfortable afternoon,coach Carlo Ancelotti decided to bring on all three players together.
The other take on the events is that the plan was always to bring on all three and that Isco’s talk with the coaches was tactical.
