Asensio: Madrid talk premature

Espanyol loanee Marco Asensio has insisted that it is too early to tell whether he will return to Real Madrid at the end of the season.

The 19-year-old has impressed in his opening matches for Los Periquitos since joining on a season-long loan, but he is refusing to acknowledge the praise as a sure sign that he will resume his career at the Santiago Bernabeu.

“It was very exciting to receive the fans’ support. It helps me and the team,” he said at a Press conference.

“When we’re united, wins like the one against Valencia are achieved. As for the praise, I’m taking it easy.

“It’s too early to assess whether I will return to Madrid. We’ll see what happens at the end of the season.

“I feel more comfortable in the position of attacking midfielder. I can also play on the wing, but that’s up to the Coach.

“I try to isolate myself from everything that people say [about my perfomances]. I only try to train well and play well.

 “I don’t feel nervous. I didn’t expect such a good start, but I always expected to do well for Espanyol.

“I feel no pressure as I have nothing to prove.”
