Real Madrid stars, Marcelo and Isco Alarcon, have been blamed for contributing to the sack of manager Julen Lopetegui.

However, the director of Spanish newspaper, Ok Diario, Eduardo Inda has now opened up on the mess at the Bernabeu.

According to him, Marcelo and Isco’s fitness contributed to the problems at the Bernabeu.
