The representative of Spain stayed with Real for this season, although during the window there was a lot of talk about his possible transfer. However, Santiago Bernabeu has not received any satisfactory offer for the 26-year-old.
Carlo Ancelotti, however, is not very eager to use the Spaniard’s services in the current competitions. Asensio in not a single match was not in the starting line-up of “Królewski”.
Today, the winger was also sent back to the bench. In the second half, Asensio took a long time to warm up, but Carlo Ancelotti decided that other players would enter the field. The Italian let Nacho, Luca Modricio, Eduardo Camavingena and Dani Carvajal in from the bench.
When Real took advantage of the latest shift, Asensio became furious. The footballer threw a plastron, kicked the water bottle and sat on the bench until the end of the game with discontent written on his face.
Overall, Asensio has spent 17 minutes on the pitch this season. The 26-year-old came off the bench against Celta Vigo and Celtic. It is possible that this season will be the last in which the Spaniard plays for Real. His contract with “Los Blancos” is valid for only one more year.
