the jinx of Isco Alarcon in recent years he has ‘burst’ the career of Julen Lopetegui. The footballer from Malaga has been present in the last three outings of the Basque coach: Spanish National Team, Real Madrid and Seville. Isco signed for the Seville club in August to be with Lopetegui for the third time in his career. But his sports relationship has been broken again much sooner than expected due to the horrible results of the Andalusian club.
On the eve of the start of Russia World Cup in 2018, Julen Lopetegui was sacked as national coach just before leaving for Real Madrid. At that time the star of spain era Isco Alarcon. Nine months earlier, the player from Malaga signed against Italia in the Bernabeu one of his best games of his sports career with two great goals and an infinity of details. The sports relationship between the two began at that time, but ended up breaking up for a short time.
Lopetegui he was going to be the Spanish coach at the World Cup in Russia until he was announced as the new coach of the Real Madrid. The Basque coach was dismissed from his position two days before the World Cup began and in Valdebebas he met again with an Isco whom he wanted to make the cornerstone of his project.
Things, however, did not turn out as expected and the Basque coach, lasting very little in the Real Madrid. His stage lasted from June to October 2018, after being thrashed at the Camp Nou and previously losing the European Super Cup in front of Atletico Madrid. Isco he played ten games at that start of the season. One more than he has played this season with the Sevilla of Christmas (nine). The Malaga has been with Lopetegui in three different stages: Spanish team, Real Madrid and Seville. The most lasting was that of the selection and the other two were ephemeral.
