That is why this week, his birthday, he is especially happy because the goal was to start touching the ball. Something that has fulfilled this Monday, already with the boots on and on the grass of Valdebebas. Now begins the kinder stage of recovery, the feeling of being a footballer again.The goal of the Balearic remains the same: play the final months of the season and go to the European Championship. But without setting deadlines. It is clear that he wants to return when he is 100% full of confidence. When, in summary, it is the Asensio before the injury. From the first moment he wants to fight for a place in the eleven holder of Zidane because he knows he has the full confidence of the French coach. In addition, he is motivated to help the team in the decisive section of the course … Marco Asensio turns 24 at his best in recent months. Since it was operated on August 7 by Dr. Manuel Leyes at the Cemtro Clinic in Madrid, the balearic road has been complicated. The first weeks were desperate: severe pain, dizziness from medication … The normal thing in the days after an intervention of this type, but that becomes especially hard when thinking about the long recovery that is ahead.Supported by his own, Marco was optimistic from the start. And, above all, disciplined and hardworking: he has been doing daily eight-hour sessions in Valdebebas for months. At first, it was monotonous and boring: physiotherapy, swimming pool … A lot of effort in the shade with little progress. And a formula that has been fulfilled: goals week by week.
