Ballon d'Or not a focus for Asensio
Real Madrid star Marco Asensio is unfazed by whether he will win the Ballon d'Or in the future, insisting his focus is on his performances. Asensio was Madrid's hero in LaLiga on Saturday, scoring the game's only goal in a 1-0 victory over his former club Espanyol. The Spain international has been touted as a future winner of the Ballon d'Or, but the 22-year-old said it was not a focus. "The Ballon d'Or? In the end, I dedicate myself and if it arrives, it will arrive," Asensio said. "We will see in the future."  Jumping for joy!  41' @marcoasensio10 pic.twitter.com/B66O2kw12s — Real Madrid C.F.  (@realmadriden) September 22, 2018 Asensio has started all five of Madrid's LaLiga games this season, and they moved top of the table with their win over Espanyol. While the Ballon d'Or may not be a focus for Asensio, the midfielder would one day like to wear number 10 at Madrid, a shirt held by Croatia international Luka Modric. "They haven't told me anything to change the number and that's why I haven't been able to decide either," he said. "Ten is a number that I like, but it's in the hands of Modric. In the future, I would like it."

Central Coast Mariners sign Ross McCormack and Tommy Oar, Usain Bolt still on trial
Olympic sprinter Yohan Blake believes Usain Bolt will prove people wrong given the right training.  The World Cup winner watched Usain Bolt trial first-hand during his time at Borussia Dortmund. Eight-time Olympic gold medallist Usain Bolt appeared as a trialist in Central Coast Mariners' match against Central Coast Football. Central Coast have made a huge statement of intent, signing Ross McCormack and Tommy Oar to bolster their attacking stocks for the coming A-League season.
