'Morata is a top player' - Moreno defends Spain team-mate amid threats due to Euro 2020 performances


The Villarreal frontman has backed his under-fire international colleague ahead of a last-16 clash with Croatia

Gerard Moreno has jumped to the defence of "top player" Alvaro Morata amid the threats the striker has received for his Euro 2020 performances with Spain.

Morata revealed that he has been a victim of social media abuse following his underwhelming display in a 1-1 group-stage draw with Poland.

The Atletico Madrid forward, who recently extended his loan stay at Juventus, said his family were insulted and threatened in a barrage of vile messages from online trolls, with Moreno among those left shocked and saddened by the personal attacks on his team-mate.
