Isaías’ remarkable Reds career by the numbers


After six fruitful years at Adelaide United, and serving as Captain for the final two, Isaías will be fondly remembered as arguably our greatest midfielder to don the Reds jersey.

The Spanish maestro signed for the Club in 2013 and we breakdown his incredible numbers he managed to compile.

Isaías played 181 games across all competitions for Adelaide, which currently ranks second on the Club’s all-time appearances list behind Eugene Galeković.

Of the 181 total appearances, 158 of them were in the Hyundai A-League.

The number of FFA Cup matches he featured in – an incumbent record for Adelaide.

The Spaniard netted 10 goals for the Reds which all arrived in the Hyundai A-League. In the 2015/16 and 2018/19 seasons, Isaías finished with four goals – impressive for someone not known for his scoring prowess. However, on the occasions he did find the net they were usually spectacular.

Isaías built the reputation as a dead ball specialist as his status in the league grew. He slotted five free-kicks – contributing to half of his overall goals tally.

The Spaniard registered 12 assists and five secondary assists across all competitions.

The number of wins Isaías accumulated when on the park for Adelaide in all competitions.

Isaías clinched four pieces of silverware with the Reds winning a historic Premiership and Championship double as well as two FFA Cups.

The midfielder was named Aurelio Vidmar Club Champion a Club-record four times, and bestowed the award the past three seasons. No player has won the prestigious accolade more than twice.

The number of minutes Isaías played since making his Hyundai A-League debut in Round 1 of 2013/14, which is the most in the competition during that time.

The Spaniard made 9,444 passes, leading the league in that statistic.

The number of passes he made into the final third during his six-year career with the Reds, again leading the competition.

Isaías recorded 386 interceptions on the park – the most in the Hyundai A-League over the last six years.

He won 1,032 duels, more than any other player player since 2013/14.

The 32-year-old Captained the Reds in his final two seasons, taking the reins from Eugene Galeković in 2017.

Isaías played every minute of every match across both the FFA Cup and Hyundai A-League during 2018/19. It was the first time he achieved such a feat.

Isaías collected the Joe Marston Medal for his best on ground performance against the Western Sydney Wanderers in the 2016 Grand Final, punctuated by dispatching a world-class free-kick into the top corner.

In those 181 games, Isaías has been substituted a mere six times. 

Isaías made just one substitute appearance in his Adelaide career, occurring against Melbourne City in March 2016 following a two-week injury lay-off.
