◼️ The Spanish footballer is still wearing the #20 jersey. Mariano is the new owner of the number that the Portuguese star wore.
Marco Asensio has offered an interview for the magazine Panenka in which he has commented that he would not like to finish his career with shirt number 20, the same one he uses with Real Madrid and the Spanish National Team. Would you like to take the 7 from Madrid?: “Yes … (laughs) I wouldn’t like to finish my career with the number 20 , That should tell you everything, if I would like to change it? Yes, we’ll see what happens”.
The Spanish player who scored two goals against Croatia also referred to his former coach, Zinedine Zidane: “From the beginning he trusted me, he has always told me not to put things that aren’t in my head, to ignore what is said outside, because there is a lot of talk, especially in Real Madrid, many expectations are created, that I should focus only on football, on being well with my family, and that I don’t forget of what has brought me here”.
Asensio also spoke about CR7 and his farewell: “I found out later, they asked me about Cristiano in a mixed zone and I did not know why.” Then I asked him on the bus and he said: ‘I didn’t say anything …’ But Well … I don’t know if it was magnified, the press interpreted at that moment that he was going to leave but at that moment I didn’t think of anything else other than celebrating my second Champions League in a row, then we said goodbye to the holidays with a message and that’s it, he left. “
