Real Madrid coach Ancelotti: Asensio will have minutes

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti says he wants his fringe players hungry ahead of their clash with Real Mallorca.

One of the questions put to Ancelotti was about Marco Asensio, after reports of his frustration due to a lack of playing time and a contract that expires in 2023.

"It's normal that those who aren't playing aren't happy," Ancelotti said.

"If Marco Asensio or Isco or Luka Jovic aren't happy with not playing then that's normal, that's good. But, Asensio, Isco and Jovic are training well. Asensio, Isco and Jovic will have minutes.

"I have to evaluate the condition of the players who have played. I'm thinking about making some changes [in the next match], but I need to see [Tuesday's] training session first. But yes, we're thinking about making some changes. It's difficult to pick the line-ups."
