Real Madrid attacker Marco Asensio has said that he feels very good after successful recovering from a knee ligament injury.
Asensio suffered the knee injury while playing in the pre-season friendly against English side Arsenal in the International Champions Cup last summer.
The youngster is yet to make an appearance for Los Blancos this season as he focused on recovering from the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
The 24-year-old has however said he is delighted to be back, having gone through a surgery and worked on his rehabilitation at the club’s facilities before the suspension of the league.
“I feel very good,” he told Realmadrid TV. “The first week was different when I returned to training, being with my team-mates.
“My adaptation has been good. The knee is responding well and the truth is that I am physically very well.

“The wait has been very long. I have worked a lot and, above all, I have had a lot of patience, because seeing your colleagues train every day while being in the physiotherapy room was something that hurt me a lot.
“I am already with my colleagues in the field and that is the important thing. The wait was worth it.”
While Asensio focuses on getting back to playing for the club once again, he is also willing to fight for his side in their attempts to clinch the La Liga title while challenging for the Champions League also.
“We really want LaLiga to start and to face those games that decide a title,” Asensio said. “We know that they are life-or-death matches.
“Every game we have to face it to the fullest, and we are going to try to win everything we have left.”
Marco Asensio is back in full training and should be available for Zinedine Zidane to count on once the season gets back underway next month.
