Marco Asensio, confined as a substitute since the start of the season, remained on the bench again this Sunday against Real Mallorca (4-1, fifth day of La Liga). Disappointed with his situation, the Spanish attacking midfielder lost his temper in front of the cameras.
“He is happy to be here. He knows the group well and we know him well. Last year he did a very good job. He was decisive in some matches and helped us win the La Liga and the Champions League. I think the same will happen this season. He will get his minutes and chances, as will others. and will be able to compete. Carlo Ancelotti confirmed during a recent press conference, organized once the summer transfer window was over, that Marco Asensio would be given playing time. But the weeks go by and the situation of the Spanish winger has not improved.
Only one game this season
Real Madrid hosted, on Sunday, Real Mallorca, in the framework of the fifth day of the Spanish League (4-1 win). Again as a substitute, the 26-year-old did not play. However, he was called to warm up while awaiting a possible presence at the Santiago Bernabeu, as the Palma de Mallorca native was injured after Lucas Vazquez was injured. While three changes have already been made, the Italian coach preferred to use Dani Carvajal (71). The decision was too much for Marco Asensio who, when he returned to the bench, threw a bib on the floor and kicked in the air.
At the time of the announcement of the departure of the former player in Espanyol Barcelona, he has only one appearance since the start of the 2022-2023 season. Under a contract until June 2023 with Merengo, the Spain international (29 matches, 1 goal) is going through a delicate period with the last Champions League winner.
