- Super Eagles attacker, Isaac Success, is having a tough spell at new club Malaga
- Success is currently on loan at relegation threaten Malaga
- And Spanish media believes the striker is over weight
Super Eagles attacker Isaac Success is currently not living up to his name 'success' as he is having a rough spell this season and it has been extended to his new club Malaga.
The 22-year-old Isaac has played just 45 minutes of football for Watford all season has played just 12 minutes for his new side Malaga.
Though the once highly rated striker has been hampered by two hamstring injuries the £12.5m buy from Granada struggled in the Premier League and managed just one goal in 19 games.
Malaga manager, Jose Lopez, now appears to have had enough with the striker after Spanish media hinted that the Super Eagles ace is overweight and not ready to play yet.
Spanish media, AS, have claimed that Success ‘has come out of shape and with a remarkable excess of weight due to his scarce activity in the Watford’.
And Lopez delivered this damning verdict on the former Granada player, who failed to feature in the Malaga squad for their latest defeat to Atletico Madrid.
“I am the main endorsement of Isaac to come here and I think that, for this game, the minutes he will play in may not be the necessary player.”
Success has featured just twice this season for Watford, a Carabao Cup appearance against Bristol City being his only outing for the Hornet.
Malaga are rock bottom of La Liga with 15 games to play and desperately need some attacking and creative flair .
With a game against Barcelona looming there would be no better game for Success to prove himself in.
