Carlo Ancelotti on Marco Asensio: “He is a Madrid player and I consider him as such.”

Following Real Madrid’s 2-1 victory against Alemería last night, Carlo Ancelotti elaborated on Marco Asensio’s situation at the club.

Real Madrid came back from a goal down to beat Almería 2-1. Ancelotti reviewed the match in a post-match interview that appeared on Mundo Deportivo:

“We started badly and we lacked the freshness to play forward and we shot a lot because they were very tight. We had a lot of difficulties to score, but they were more tired in the second half and we took advantage of that.”

Marco Asensio has been linked with a move away from Real Madrid this transfer window and the Italian revealed his thoughts regarding the future of the 26-year-old at Los Blancos:

“He is a Madrid player and I consider him as such. If he deserves to play, he will play. You have to remember the goals he scored and what he did last season. We have to wait until the 31st to know what happens and what he decides.”
