Real Madrid fans give Kubo the nod over Rodrygo as Asensio replacement

AS English asked fans to offer their view on selecting Kubo or Rodrygo as a possible replacement for the injured Asensio with the Japanese player being the preferred option.

Real Madrid suffered a major setback to their 2019-20 season planning when Marco Asesnio sustained a serious cruciate ligament damage which is expected to rule the player out action for the forthcoming season.

Asensio’s setback presents a headache for French coach Zinedine Zidane but fortunately for the French manager, two ready made replacements are at hand in the shape of new summer acquisitions: Japanese teenager Takefuso Kubo and Brazilian winger Rodrygo Goes.

AS.English Twitter users give their view on who should replace Asensio in the first team squad based on pre-season evidence.

Despite the margin being close, 54% opted for the former Tokyo FC player with 46% of the votes cast allocated to the Brazilian winger.
