Marco Asensio Want like Zidane
Real Madrid midfielder Marco Asensio expressed his desire to be like Zinedine Zidane. The future players Spain and Real Madrid is admiring the figure of his coach while still a footballer.
Zidane has a shiny career while still actively grazing. The French-headed man was starred at Juventus before Real Madrid brought him to the world’s most expensive player label in the summer of 2001 until his retirement at the club in July 2006.
Hanging shoes, Zidane became assistant coach at Santiago Bernabeu. January 2016, he was appointed head coach to replace the sacked Rafael Benitez and until now has collected seven titles.
“I am saying it is not because Zidane is my current coach, but I always wanted to be like Zidane,” Asensio told Managing Madrid as quoted by BolaSport.com.
The Real Madrid midfielder also said he would not move despite an offer from a wealthy club like Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).
Not only the desire to be like Zidane, Asensio also spoke about his teammate, Cristiano Ronaldo. He feels the ban on playing in five domestic matches received by Ronaldo is too heavy.
“Cristiano is a great player, one of the strongest players I’ve ever encountered – the score he got is a penalty for him but also for us because we will lose the best players for a few weeks,” the 21-year-old said.
Asensio also took lessons from the Ronaldo case not to underestimate the referee.
“The punishment will be an opportunity, he has our full support, but be careful with him because he gets better when he gets hurt,” Asensio added.
