Isco: Don't compare me to Iniesta

The former Malaga star has urged people to stop comparing him to the Barcelona midfielder and is determined to become a household name himself

Real Madrid midfielder Isco has admitted he is growing tired of the comparisons with Andres Iniesta, even though he feels honoured to be likened to the Barcelona man.

The 22-year-old, who joined Madrid from Malaga in the summer of 2013, has drawn comparisons with his fellow Spain international due to his style of play, yet he is determined to become a big name himself.

“It is an honour that people are comparing me to Iniesta because of everything that he has achieved,” Isco said at a press conference.

“But, and I have said this before, I do not like these kinds of comparisons. Andres is Andres and I am Isco. I am a different person and player.

“I want to etch my name into the history books myself, both at club and international level.”

Isco went on to stress that he is a good relationship with Iniesta and is happy to play alongside him with the national team.

“I get on with Iniesta very well. It is very easy to get along well with him, just like with all players at the national team.”
