Alvaro Morata helped Atletico Madrid through a potentially tricky Copa del Rey match against Levante. He scored the opening goal of their 2-0 victory. Meanwhile, he also welcomed his new teammate at the club.
Morata talked about the game after their win to TVE:
“It’s always easier when you win, life is happier when you win.”
What Morata said about Memphis
Finally, he discussed about Memphis Depay, Atletico’s newest recruit. Depay is keen for a perfect start with the red and white shirt.
“Top player, welcome, Atletico is a place where you will surely be happy. We look forward to it and we welcome with open arms to anyone who comes to help.”
Simeone’s choice of how to use Memphis will be highly intriguing. Simeone might be reluctant to start two forwards and Antoine Griezmann in his Memphis team. Because Memphis traditionally runs best with a natural striker, in this case, Morata. It is rare for him to do so when Joao Felix is in the team. Even though Memphis and the Portuguese have different roles in the team.
