Speaking at a press conference ahead of Saturday's LaLiga match against Real Sociedad, the Real Madrid coach said: "I want him (Isco) to spend his entire career here and that won't change". Jon Bautista and Asier Illaramendi netted consolation goals for Real Sociedad.
Ronaldo had a hard time earlier in the season with just four goals in his first 14 La Liga games, but the reigning Ballon D'Or holder now has seven strikes in his last four outings in the competition. "On the contrary, they're games that we like to play".
Griezmann marked his goal by holding up a shirt carrying the name of Nacho Barbera, in a tribute to the 15-year-old Atletico fan who died suddenly during a youth game near Valencia last weekend.
"Before PSG, we have an important League match, so we'll see what happens".
The two-time Champions League winning manager further added that he has full faith in his team, in spite of the recent results. After his arrival from Malaga in 2013, Isco has brought in new revelations by becoming Zidane's first choice for orchestrating Real Madrid's attack in the Spanish league.
Liverpool's most serious competition, though, would be City-if they have room for him.
The 25-year-old is hamstrung by the fact that Real are tactically inflexible in a 4-3-3 as three midfielders are required to do Bale and Ronaldo's donkey work coming in off the flanks, while the Spaniard is best deployed behind the striker.
It is Atletico's eighth 1-0 win of the campaign and temporarily moves them to within six points of FC Barcelona, who entertain Getafe in the Camp Nou Stadium on Sunday. Though the Ligue 1 club are in better form domestically, 11 points clear of second-placed Marseille, Ronaldo believes that it is still too close of a game to call.
"When Messi or Ronaldo will be in a bad shape, and we'll see more at Cristiano because of his age , Neymar will be the next Ballon d'Or victor".
