Real Madrid star: I don’t think about Ballon d’Or


​Real Madrid’s star youngster Marco Asensio was rewarded with a new contract at the Santiago Bernabeu until 2023 after which he revealed that he does not think about winning the FIFA Ballon d’Or trophy as of now.

The 21-year-old has been tipped to be a future world beater thanks to his brilliant performances for Zinedine Zidane’s team since last season. Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo too praised Asensio in his recent interview.

Speaking to ​Marca, the humble Asensio said, “Receiving praise from Cristiano Ronaldo is a joy. But I don’t think about winning the Ballon d’Or because I’m young and everything will happen when it happens.”

Real Madrid will be absolutely ecstatic that a potential future world class player has extended his deal by six-years at the club, which is more than any of the other Madrid players.


Asensio continued, “It is a very important day for me. Renewing the contract with the biggest club in the world is a source of real pride. Last season was a great year, where I grew a lot.”

Speaking about Zinedine Zidane and the time he will be getting to play on the pitch, Asensio said, “Zidane knows how to deal with me. I have my personal goals and my goal is always to play, but I understand that he has to allocate minutes to others because we are a team.”
