Spot Of Bother: Marco Asensio to miss Champions League opener
Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane found it difficult not to laugh when asked why he would be missing Marco Asensio for their Champions League opener tonight.
Zidane had a good reason.
The playmaker will miss the game against Apoel because of a PIMPLE on his leg. Yes, a pimple.
Spanish reports suggest that it is not just any pimple, but one infected caused by shaving his legs!
When asked to elaborate on why Asensio would be absent for the Apoel clash, Zidane giggled: “A pimple… which stopped him pulling up his socks.”
Did you ever hear the likes of it? I hope not.
