Diego Simeone paid tribute to Alvaro Morata after he grabbed a brace in the 2-0 win over Real Sociedad on Sunday.
The striker struggled for goals during his time with Chelsea, but has hit the ground running with Atletico since penning an 18-month loan deal with the La Liga side.
Morata opened his account last time out against Villarreal and added another two yesterday, much to the delight of his coach. “When we sign a player we always envision his best side, some adapt faster than others,” Simeone said. “More than for his goals, I am happy for the work he is putting and for how he has adapted to the team.
“Those who have hierarchy take less time to adapt, he is not a kid and he meets the conditions we set for him.” Morata is also delighted to have put a difficult time at Chelsea behind him by returning to what he enjoys the most, scoring goals.
“Most of the time, forwards are judged by their goals but, above all, I have adapted well and quickly,” Morata said. “I am very happy because I have had a bad time in the past. “I have adapted quickly thanks to the help of everybody at the club and my colleagues.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
