Morata clenched his teeth and won the La Roja prize

Morata's goals with Atlético and their step forward in a moment of need return the Red to the battering ram. Atlético expects to have found another leader in this transition stage.


It is not a consolation, but Morata returns to dress in the La Roja shirt after she was not called in the last call of October. Nor could he be in September because of a knee problem. Goal by goal, Atlético striker has convinced Robert Moreno that it is his time again. Morata focused in the best way his absence from October. "I expected to see myself on the National Team roster," said the battering opponent after the Atlético tie in Zorrilla and after knowing the list at the time. Far from falling apart, it has been the best trick to which Atlético has grabbed, either as a starter or leaving from the bench.

Since that match against Valladolid, he has only missed his appointment with the goal in the clash against Valencia. Five goals in six games and, above all, demonstrating ambition to change the rojiblanca bad streak. Against Leverkusen in the Metropolitan, 20 minutes were enough to guide the game with a header for the Madrid side. In Vitoria it was half an hour, as soon as he left the field he scored the Atlético. Its only mole is to refine the success rate. In both Vitoria and Leverkusen he had two clear options to double, but he crashed his shot at the goalkeepers. Just adjust a little more, but Robert Moreno is full of reason recognizing the moment of the striker, for which the National Team is always a special motivation and it hurts particularly when it does not go.

After the absences of September and October, Morata had to accelerate so as not to lose a three that is getting more and more complicated. Gerard Moreno, Rodrigo, Oyarzabal, Alcácer ... His teammates on the list live a good time too. Including Dani Olmo, although nine is not his natural position. But there are others who also squeeze like the Betic Loren. The competition is voracious with the Eurocup ticket so close. In Atlético, little by little, it is also becoming a leader. He is not among the trio of captains, but his ancestry begins to be important in the dressing room and his attunement with the technician is a guarantee. The club hopes that the effort being made with it will translate into being able to have a heavyweight in this time of transition.

Morata is on loan.

It should be remembered that Atlético was able to extend the transfer contract with Chelsea last summer, but in the next one they will have to pay 54 million to make their rights definitively. With the Morata Team he has scored 16 goals in 31 games, for a total of 1,701 minutes. At Atlético, this season, he is in a goal every 122 minutes and climbing, having signed six goals in 736 minutes. The national team is the prize for having clenched their teeth in Atlético.
