REAL MADRID 2-0 TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

The winger spoke after making his debut with Real Madrid in the 2-0 win over Tottenham.
Marco Asensio made his debut with Real Madrid, playing the last 20 minutes of the 2-0 win over Tottenham in the Audi Cup. The player, who had remained on loan with Mallorca after being signed by Madrid at the end of 2014, said he had come to Madrid with the intention of staying. Having won the European U-19 championships this summer with Spain, a lot of clubs are interested in taking him on loan.
Signing for Real Madrid
When the signed me I still had a commitment to Mallorca, but having trained with Real Madrid I’m very happy and I’m hoping to learn a lot more.
I talked to the coach and he told me to think about training well, playing these matches with Real Madrid and then he’ll decide what’s to happen.
Thoughts about the match
I was a little bit tired but there’s time.
A lot of clubs want you on loan
It’s a source of pride that so many teams are interested, but for now I’m focused on Madrid.
There are a lot of players in the attacking midfield area at Madrid, James, Isco, Bale…
There are lot of players who play as a 10, it’s tough to get in there, but I can play on any side up front. I think I’m a versatile player. I’m getting to know my teammates. I’m a bold player, I guess my teammates will have seen that. I’m enjoying the money.
