Pat Nevin hails Alvaro Morata for his recent performance in UEFA champions League


Chelsea legend, Pat Nevin, has hailed the club’s former striker, Alvaro Morata, after his recent performance against Celtic in the UEFA Champions League.

Nevin branded Morata as absolutely extraordinary, adding that the Spain international is always at the right place at the right time.

Recall that Morata scored two goals in Atletico Madrid’s Champions League 6-0 win over the Scottish Premier League side in mid-week.

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live Sport, Nevin said, “Morata, considering what everybody thought of him when he was playing for Chelsea, the nightmare he had there, he is an incredible striker. He is always in the right place at the right time – He is absolutely extraordinary.

“I have looked through a lot of his goals in the last few while, just trying to understand what he does differently now than what he was doing in England.

“He is just as good as you get ghosting in. His numbers are brilliant.”

Morata has netted 7 goals in 10 La Liga matches for Atletico Madrid so far this season
