‘Madrid found the way forward’

Marco Asensio believes Real Madrid’s 2-0 victory over Getafe on Sunday ‘showed the way to go far this season’.

“It was very important to start well,” the winger said after the game.

“We had a very complete match, but we have to go step by step. This is our first match, but we showed the way to go far this season.

“Ronaldo’s already gone, but I still think we have a great team. We’re working well. Like I said before, this is the way forward.

“What happened in the European Super Cup happened, so we had to turn the page. This is a different competition…

“A new season has started and we’re very excited about it. We had a great game. Transfers don’t depend on me, that's what the President and Coach…

“They’ll see if any position needs strengthening. If I had to make that decision? I can’t, since I don’t.”
