After sustaining a foot injury while representing Spain, the initial prognosis suggested that Marco Asensio would be sidelined for a month if not for longer. However, there's a glimmer of hope that his absence may be shorter than anticipated, according to information revealed by L'Equipe.
The timing of the injury couldn't have been worse for Marco Asensio, who had made an impressive start to the season with PSG, contributing two goals and an assist in the first month of play.
Unfortunately, Asensio picked up an injury while on international duty with Spain during their victory over Georgia. The Spanish media quickly reported that the former Real Madrid player, who suffered a foot injury, would be out of action "for a month."
Asensio would have potentially missed multiple Ligue 1 and Champions League games including a clash against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League next Tuesday.
It's clear that Marco Asensio will be unavailable for the Borussia Dortmund clash, obviously. However, there is a glimmer of hope going forward.
According to L'Équipe, examinations conducted in Paris have revealed that Asensio might make a return to action in just "two to three weeks." PSG fans can expect further updates on his condition during the customary medical update by the club, expected to arrive before the game against Nice in Ligue 1 this weekend.
While he'll miss some action, there's optimism that Asensio's return might be sooner than initially feared, which is something Luis Enrique will surely be happy about.
