Morientes: Marco Asensio A Rare Player
Former Real Madrid striker Fernando Morientes has praised Marco Asensio thanks to his outstanding performance for the club and his country this season.
Los Blancos coach Zinedine Zidane and Spain coach Julen Lopetegui have been entrusted with the 21-year-old.
With the signing of the player’s name backed by Isco and Toni Kroos, Morientes expects great things from the star.
“It’s rare to find players with talent like Asensio,” Morientes told the media.
“Maybe he’s only a decade. There’s great hope in the player but I’m sure he’s talented enough and can bear that hope. ”
Asensio performed well early in the season, scoring four goals in six Madrid’s opening matches.
Although he missed the Champions League contra APOEL, he returned to action when Madrid aground 1-0 at the hands of Real Betis.
