Isco’s stats for Sevilla
Transfermarkt noted that Isco only played 19 games for Sevilla, scoring one and notching up three assists, this season.
Why was Isco let go?
The Spanish striker was signed by former coach, Julen Lopetegui, but he was sacked in October. It’s believed that he was not part of the new coach Jorge Sampaoli's plans. Isco also fell out of favour at the club after a falling out with Sevilla's sporting director Monchi.
As noted by Football Espana, Isco had an argument with Monchi and later was seen storming out of a training session. He was also left out of the club’s most recent friendlies.
