Van der Vaart demands Isco to start for Real Madrid

first_imgDutch former player Rafael Van der Vaart, granted an interview ahead of Real Madrid’s match vs Ajax and stated that Isco is the best in the world.The situation between Isco and Real Madrid has reached a boiling point that Rafael Van der Vaart doesn’t seem to understand, the Dutch former Los Blancos’ player hates the idea of not having the Spaniard starting in every single match for the Spanish giants.In his eyes, Isco is the best player in the world and he won’t watch Real Madrid whenever he doesn’t start a match.The reality is that the Spanish midfielder is arguably one of the most talented players that the club has, but he is also one of the most wasted talents of recent memory for any club.Since he started his career at Real Madrid, Alarcon has never reached that level of performance that people expected from him and he never really claimed the starring role that describes his true potential.Instead of fighting to silence his critics, Isco has opted to live his life in a more relaxed manner with the certainty of being part of a club that always wins trophies.But he has never really been that key player that Van der Vaart speaks of, maybe this interview could be a call for action for Isco once he gets to read it.Maybe the Dutch player himself sees a little bit of him in the Spaniard.”En Holanda piensan que gana el Ajax seguro, pero les digo que el Madrid es el Madrid” Entrevista con @rafvdvaart por @nacholabarga #UCL— MARCA (@marca) January 16, 2019During an extended interview with Marca, Rafa spoke about his time as a Real Madrid player and the legends that he played with during his time.“I played with some of the best players in the world: Ramos, Guti, Raul, Ronaldo, Kaka, Benzema… It’s a very special thing,” said Rafa during the interview.“Being able to play in the same club as Cristiano, for example, is very impressive. People recognize how important Ronaldo was for Real Madrid, a player who scored nearly 60 goals per-season.”“There were six players from the Netherlands during the first year, it’s true that there may have been too many of us.”“It was worse in the sense that we were together all the time and we only spoke Dutch between us, there were a lot less of us by next season and my Spanish improved because I was able to mingle with players from other countries.”“It’s weird that the squad plays so badly in some home matches like they did against Real Sociedad, I really don’t think it’s a matter of attitude.”Sergio Ramos, Real MadridZidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.“They have lost Cristiano and Zidane, Solari is slowly starting to get the grip of the players and I’m sure they will finish the season with another title apart from the Club World Cup.”“What happens with Isco is crazy to me, he is the best player in the world. But he always has problems with his managers. Zidane never really trusted him 100%.”“Every time I watch Real Madrid, I check if he is going to start the game or not. If he doesn’t start, then I go back home and prefer to not watch it,” he concluded.Van der Vaart: “Si Isco no es titular me voy a casa, es el mejor del mundo” Entrevista por @nacholabarga— MARCA (@marca) January 16, 2019Van der Vaart’s assessment of Isco is arguably a little out of proportion, this player may be very talented but he is quite far from being considered the best player in the world by anybody else apart from the Dutch former midfielder.As things stand right now for the Spaniard, leaving Real Madrid is a major possibility for him by the end of the season.The whole problem with Isco right now is that he clearly has an unresolved personal issue with manager Santiago Solari, this is pretty obvious despite the Argentine’s latest comments denying such problems with the midfielder.If there wasn’t anything personal between the two, Isco would’ve at least stared the Copa del Rey match against Leganes last week.The coach has another chance to prove that such a problem doesn’t exist, it will be this Wednesday when Los Blancos play the second leg against Leganes at Butarque.The problem here is that given how bad the situation appears between Isco and the manager, everything points to Brahim Diaz starting his first match and Alarcon staying on the bench.Solari: “¿Vender a Isco? Yo soy el entrenador”— MARCA (@marca) January 15, 2019Do you agree with Van der Vaart, is Isco the best player in the world?

Why is Pawan Kalyan not bringing in star campaigners for Jana Sena

first_imgJana Sena Party chief Pawan KalyanTwitterPower star Pawan Kalyan has not brought even a single star to campaign for Jana Sena Party (JSP) in the upcoming Assembly elections in Andhra Pradesh. It has become topic of debate in the state.The celebs from the film industry are one of the biggest attractions of election campaigns and their presence is said to be a crowd puller for political parties. Hence, most of the political parties vie their hands to bring the most popular star on board to campaign for them during elections in India.Andhra Padesh is now witnessing a triangular battle among Telugu Desam Party (TDP), YSR Congress Party (YCP) and Jana Sena Party in the impending Assembly elections. All the three parties have adapted innovative methods of campaigning and one among them is age-old traditon of bring star campaigners.The YCP has an upper hand with Jagan Mohan Reddy bringing over 15 star campaigners on board. The rulling TDP also has some celebs. But the JSP has utterly fallen back in this direction and many in the film industry are wondering over why Pawan Kalyan being No 1 Tollywood actor, is not willing to opt for some.The JSP has been a one man show and Pawan Kalyan is bearing the whole brunt of electioneering on his shoulders. He has good capacity of crowd pulling, but he can not cover the campaigning for all the candidates of his party in a short time. Bringing in some stars would boost the morale of his party workers.Pawan Kalyan hails from the mega family, which boasts of 10 popular celebs, but all of them have distanced themselves from the party activities. His brother Nagababu joined the JSP and is contesting the Lok Sabha election from Narasapuram. He revealed that along with the power star, he had gone to invite his brother Chiranjeevi, but he declined to compaign for the party. Pawan Kalyan and ChiranjeeviTwitterRam Charan, Allu Arjun and Varun Tej, the popular stars from the mega family, are all eager to campaign for their uncle, but Pawan Kalyan has not invited them. Several young actors including Nithin, who have made their career in the industry with his support, are also excited to return his favour, by campaigning for the JSP. But the actor has stayed away from taking their support.Pawan Kalyan is not able to address rallies in all the constituencies. He is said to be limiting his campaigning to some candidates, who have fare chances of winning the elections. Hence, there is a growing demand for star campaigners in the party and the workers are said to be requesting bring in some celebs, whose presence might help them to attract more voters. Pawan Kalyan inducts his brother Nagababu in to Jana Sena partyTwitterBut sources from the JSP claim that Pawan Kalyan, who is a shy guy, does not have a habit of requesting or inviting anybody. Though many celebs are interested to campaign for him, they can not start campaigning without an invitation. Some party leaders are apparently urging Nagababu to take initiative and bring in some star campaigners. With a week away from the polls, it should be seen whether he would make an effort.last_img read more
