Marco Asensio back on training pitch at Real Madrid

Marco Asensio is back on the training pitch at Real Madrid.

On July 24, 2019, Asensio suffered an ACL injury during Real Madrid's pre-season that was set to rule him out for close to the entire 2019/20 campaign.

However, the coronavirus-related pause in the season means that he is almost recovered from that injury and there are still 11 rounds of LaLiga Santander action to go, reports Marca.

His left knee has passed all the tests it has been put through so far and Asensio can continue to recover without feeling rushed.

The 24-year-old is feeling confident about his return and he is ready to show that he can live up to the potential the whole world of football spoke about when he burst onto the scene in 2016.
