Marco Asensio scored a breathtaking hat-trick against Mallorca.
The Spaniard has been limited to just four substitute appearances for Los Blancos this season.
He has been recently linked with a move to Premier League giants Liverpool.
His performance against Mallorca made a statement and showed what he can do if he gets more minutes playing forward.
“We’re all very engaged and committed, it’s easy to tell. We are looking forward to completing a great season. [Coach] Ancelotti can count on me, I’m ready. There’s a lot of competition for minutes. The position I played in tonight is a good one for me and I will play wherever coach wants me to do so,” said Asensio.
“I’m delighted. I had the opportunity to play from the start and I knew I had to take my chance. I’ve worked really hard for this moment to come. I’m pleased with the win, the goals and that we‘ve been able to keep the run going. It was a special game for me. Mallorca is a club that’s close to my heart, as I started out there. They’ve a good start to the season and I hope they do well in the rest of it,” he added.
