Marco Asensio has vowed to keep working hard to win first-team opportunities after once again starring in Wednesday’s win over Barcelona.
The former Real Mallorca youth produce opened the scoring with a dipping effort as Madrid – without Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo and Isco – cruised to victory at the Bernabeu.
“I work as hard as I can to play as often as possible so I must stay on this path,” Asensio is quoted as saying by Marca after the game.
“I want to start every game like I did tonight (in Supercopa) and I am very satisfied with my situation.
“Which goal did I prefer? Well, both of the goals were important in the tie…the first goal was really enjoyable, just as tonight’s was.
“But the one at the Camp Nou was more complicated and was very important.”
