Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane has revealed that he wasn’t responsible for Asensio’s goal against Bayern in their 2-1 away win at Munich during Wednesday’s Champions League semifinal first leg clash.
The manager confirmed that it was the injury suffered by Isco that prompted him to bring on match-winner Marco Asensio.
Asensio came on to net a 57th-minute winner after Marcelo cancelled out Joshua Kimmich’s opener late in the first half.
Zidane while speaking to TV reporters after the match at the Allianz Arena, said, “Isco had a shoulder problem, he did not feel comfortable from the start, so we changed him at the break.
“We hope it is not too serious.
“With Isco being injured, you have no other choice than to change him. Asensio scored [but] you can’t say it’s my coaching because I replaced an injured player.
“Asensio knows what he has to do with the ball. I don’t tell him much about that, just a few things defensively.
“We can play better, yes, but we can be happy with the game.”
It is the sixth consecutive match Madrid have won against Bayern in the Champions League.
