Zinedine Zidane Couldn't Watch After Marco Asensio Suffered A Horrific Injury Against Arsenal

Real Madrid were dealt a huge blow after Marco Asensio suffered a potentially season-ending knee ligament injury against Arsenal last night.

The Spaniard was left in tears when he appeared to get his foot jarred in the turf when tussling for the ball with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

He was eventually carried off on a stretcher at FedEx Field in Maryland and manager Zinedine Zidane could barely even watch.


Spanish publication Radioestadio provided an update following the injury, and it was bad news for Asensio.

"In the absence of official confirmation by Real Madrid, Marco Asensio may have broken the anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee." they said on their official Twitter account.

"There is a need for deeper medical tests to confirm the exact extent of the injury."


Asensio soon departed from FedEx Field in an ambulance to undergo testing on his left knee.


There were suggestions that Gareth Bale's situation at Los Blancos could change because of the Spaniard's serious injury, but manager Zidane soon played down that idea, insisting "nothing has changed."

"Yes, he is here. At the moment he is with us. He played because he wanted to be with us and play. He played and well.

"Today he played, the decision is mine, he played a part and we will see what will happen. Nothing has changed. You know the situation, I will always tell you the same thing. "


The Welsh winger scored Madrid's first goal against Unai Emery's side on Tuesday night, before Asensio equalised in the 58th minute to make it 2-2.

Arsenal started the better team and went 2-0 up after just 24 minutes.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette gave the Premier League side the advantage but they couldn't hold on for the win, eventually losing on penalties.
