Francisco Román Alarcón Suárez, simply known as Isco, received a warm reception from his former Real Madrid teammates on his return to Santiago Bernabeu.
Isco, whose contract with Madrid expired in June, put pen to paper on a two-year deal with Sevilla in the summer, ending his nine-year spell with Los Blancos.
On his return to his old stomping ground, the Spain international was shown immeasurable love from his old teammates prior to the start of Sevilla's La Liga game against Madrid.
A video posted on social media, seen by Sports Brief, shows Isco in the tunnel being greeted by Luka Modric, Vinicius Junior, Carlo Ancelotti and Toni Kroos. All of them gave Isco a hearty welcome back.

Despite receiving warmth in the tunnel, Isco was on the receiving end of another Los Blancos masterclass as the White Angels kept their unblemished record intact.
Luka Modric broke the game's deadlock but Erik Lamela levelled the score after recess, only for Lucas Vazquez and a ferocious shot from outside the box to hand Sevilla defeat, as noted by BBC.
The 30-year-old lasted 75 minutes on his homecoming to Santiago Bernabeu, as he continues to show improvement under new manager Jorge Sampaoli.
Madrid stylishly sweep Sevilla aside
Earlier, Sports Brief reported that just when it seemed Real Madrid might consider dropping points in the title race, the champions calmly moved up a gear to secure a 3-1 win over Sevilla on Saturday and extend their La Liga lead.
Carlo Ancelotti's side moved six points clear of rivals Barcelona, who host Athletic Bilbao on Sunday, thanks to two strikes in three minutes from Lucas Vazquez and Fede Valverde in the final stages.
Sevilla thought they might take something from the game when Erik Lamela's leveller cancelled out Luka Modric's early strike, but Madrid confidently wrestled control of the match back.
