Asensio: What Zidane Told Me About Messi's Left Foot

Marco Asensio: What Zinedine Zidane Told Me About Lionel Messi’s Left Foot

By David Kappel - Sep 13, 2017 09:00 PM @kappilinho

Real Madrid's up-and-coming star Marco Asensio has revealed what Zinedine Zidane told him about his left foot in comparison to Lionel Messi's.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see which six players would make up Asensio's "perfect footballer".

The Spaniard, who debuted for Real last season, has already scored four goals in this campaign – including two in the Spanish Super Cup against FC Barcelona.

"Zidane told me, since Messi, he hasn't seen a left foot like mine. I was a bit taken aback when he said that. Messi is an incredible player," Asensio told Spanish radio station COPE, as cited by AS.

The 21-year-old was also asked what qualities from other players would make his perfect player.

"Left foot? Messi's... OK then, mine (laughs)," he added.

"Right foot, Cristiano.

"Best header of the ball, Ramos.

"Intelligence, Kroos.

"Playing long balls, Kroos.

"And leader, Sergio Ramos.”

Most excellent left-footed players are pretty much the same if we are all honest. Look at Di Maria, David Silva, Bernardo Silva, Gareth Bale, Arjen Robben, Mesut Ozil, Matta and soon enough Leroy Sane Dembele, Martin Oudegaard and Marcos Asensio. They have a particular style of play that is common among them, obviously differing in style but technically you couldn't set them apart. Zidane is not far off in his comments..... All of you have opinions but none of yours is more qualified than that of Zidane's :-)
