Isco has responded to former Real Madrid player Rubén de la Red after he criticised his attitude at the club.
The 26-year-old Spanish midfielder has had an up-and-down relationship with Los Blancos boss Santiago Solari, with recent reports suggesting that he could exit the club at the end of the season.
De la Red, who came through the Spanish club's youth academy and had two separate spells in the first team, fired out a strong warning to Isco about his future at Madrid.
"Isco has to realise that Real Madrid doesn't wait for anyone," he said (via Diario AS).
Interestingly, Isco took notice of his comments and responded on Twitter.
"I completely agree with de la Red, but when you are not getting the same opportunities as your teammates, that changes things... Despite that, I'm continuing to work hard and battling for the moment when those opportunities arrive! Hala Madrid!!" he tweeted.
Totalmente de acuerdo con De la Red,pero cuando no gozas de las misma oportunidades que tus compañeros la cosa cambia... aún así sigo trabajando y luchando mucho a la espera de ellas! Hala madrid!!:blue_heart:

Well, Solari might not be happy to hear the first part of that comment about "getting the same opportunities as your teammates," but at least Isco is committed to the club.
In fact, the Madrid star has had a funny sense of humour about his situation at the club, which he showed last month when he joked about it to Luca Zidane during Los Blancos' match with Espanyol.
