Real Madrid: Friends and rivals show support for Asensio
Rupturing his cruciate ligament, the Spaniard is expected to be sidelined for nine months and many of his teammates from past and present have reached out to wish him well.
“Cheer up, Chencho,” tweeted Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos as he led the charge.
“The important thing is the strength of mind to progress step by step. Your work and passion will do the rest. We’re with you.”

Brahim Diaz, Keylor Navas, Dani Ceballos and Dani Carvajal also joined in with their captain.
“Don’t let yourself be defeated by adversities,” wrote Carvajal, who himself has faced problems in the past. “Nothing is stronger than you.”
