Alvaro Morata ‘Wants To Become One Of The Best Striker’ – Conte



Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata may have made an awesome start to life in England but there is a whole other to come from the striker, as indicated by Antonio Conte.

The Chelsea manager believes the Spain international has the ability as well as the mindset to end up noticeably one of the world’s best in his position.

signed from Real Madrid in July for a fee that could supposedly ascend to £70million, Morata has made a great job with regards to replace the absent Diego Costa as the fulcrum of Chelsea’s forward line.

His sublime header against Leicester City last Saturday made it three goals in four Premier League games for the EPL champions, but Conte still believes the 24-year-old is just beginning to get to grips with his new team’s style of play.


“Morata is a really good striker. Don’t forget Alvaro is very young, I think he can improve a lot,” Conte told the media.

“Despite him being a young player, he has played with Real Madrid and Juventus, in his career he’s won a lot, I think he has great experience, great international experience, we are happy to have him in our team.

“We are trying to work very hard with him, to adapt himself in our style of football, our idea.

“For me the striker is very important, very important, but he is a good guy and he wants to improve a lot, he wants to become one of the best.”

Morata will hope to continue his scoring streak when Chelsea host Arsenal on Sunday.

Arsene Wenger’s side have won the last two competitive meetings between the London clubs, including a 2-1 triumph in last season’s FA Cup final that denied Conte a league and cup double in his first season in charge.

“I remember very well that game, we were also a bit… unlucky,” the Italian said.

“If you remember, the first goal was very strange. I am sure that this goal [should have been] disallowed, instead, we started the game 1-0 down. Then we tried to change the game, then a red card, with 10 men we drew but then we concede another goal.

“When you lose there is always disappointment, but I think last season was a great season for us, a big achievement.
