Marco Asensio has the potential to leave a lasting legacy with both Spain and Real Madrid.
Marco Asensio could become one of the greatest players in Spain’s history, according to his Real Madrid teammate Alvaro Odriozola.
The 22-year-old winger produced one of the finest performances of his career on Tuesday. He inspired Spain to a 6-0 thrashing of Croatia in the UEFA Nations League. Asensio scored with a fine strike from distance. He then forced an own goal from goalkeeper Lovre Kalinic. And then set up all three of his side’s second-half efforts to condemn the World Cup finalists Croatia to the biggest defeat of their history – a 6-0 rout. It was the Asensio show in Elche.
Odriozola believes there is almost no limit to his teammate’s potential. He said to the reporters “I already knew him from the Under-21s. I said back in the day that he’s going to be one of the best players in the history of Spanish football and he’s showing this. He has amazing quality and I predict a great season for him.”
Marco Asensio has already won eight trophies with Madrid, including two Champions Leagues and La Liga. He has established himself as a key player for Spain and Real Madrid in the last two years in particular. He debuted for the Real Madrid’s senior side in 2016 – having agreed to join from Mallorca in 2014.
Asensio was linked with a move away from Champions League holders Madrid amid reports of a potential switch to Liverpool. He has five years remaining on his contract. Asensio told reporters: “I’ve never had the intention to go anywhere. This is my third season, in this one I think I have continuity and more prominence, and I’m seeing the performance I’m doing.”.
