Talking to the media after the huge Valencia win, Marco Asensio opened up on what Zinedine Zidane had told him moments before the Spaniard scored with his first touch.

“Zidane told me to go out there and go for it, you will score. And I did [laughs]. I’d like to thank him and everyone who supported me through those rough times,” the winger said.

Marco Asensio stepped onto the pitch for the first time in 11 months and his goal came after just 30 seconds as he found the net after Ferland Mendy’s cross.
