Conqueror: the stats that show Isaias' Hyundai A-League supremacy

He came, he saw and he conquered. Isaías arrived at Adelaide United as a relative unknown but departs Australia as one of the best midfielders ever to play in the Hyundai A-League.

The Spaniard – who balanced a day job as a plumber during his youth career at Catalonia's Badalona Academy – consistently shone in the competition following his 2013 arrival.

A real general in the Reds midfield, Isaías combined midfield artistry with a tigerish attitude off the ball to supreme effect.

FAREWELL SKIPPER: Isaias leaves Adelaide United
CONFIRMED: Roy Krishna and Wellington Phoenix part ways


And the stats - thanks to Opta data - show just how consistent the former La Liga man was across his six seasons.

Since his debut in Round 1 of the 2013/14 season, Isaias has...

  • Played more minutes than any other player: 14,096
  • Made more passes than any other player: 9,444
  • Made more passes into the final third than any other player: 1,815
  • Won more interceptions than any other player: 386
  • And won more duels than any other player: 1032
Isaías was officially unveiled as Adelaide United's Captain at the Club's 2017/18 Season Launch.
Isaías will be sorely missed in the Hyundai A-League
