After a start to the season in which it seemed that it was going to be very difficult to enjoy minutes, in recent weeks Asensio has become an important footballer for Ancelotti who has always had faith in him and has shown him confidence. With Hazard and Bale suffering like suspicious lumps through the corridors of Valdebebas, the Spaniard has taken advantage of his opportunity by responding with goals, but also with sacrifice and involvement. When he had to suck the bench, Marco could have been tempted to have abandoned himself and twist his nose, but he has responded with work and hunger, a combination that does not usually fail if you have as much class as he is standard. He’s still far from the peak performance version he has to aspire to, but he has found the confidence and motivation to be consistent and not lower his arms at the first inconvenience.
In a demanding year that is going to be a very long one, Ancelotti knows that Asensio’s class and youth have to mean a plus of quality for a squad that does not have enough talent and fresh legs. The boy is finding the goal with ease, but he is also providing work and discipline when the team has to run without the ball. His room for improvement is still evident, but the midfielder is on his way to get closer to the footballer who before breaking his knee ligament was being the sensation of Europe. Asensio, with his knee and his mentality recovered, is fantastic news for Madrid and for football. And, if you want, also for Luis Enrique.
