Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has showered a lot of praise on his side’s new signing Mateo Kovacic. The Spanish international has classified Kovacic as ‘one of the best midfielders in the game’ and has suggested that the Croatian has the attributes to sharpen the attacking setup of the Blues.
‘Mateo, first of all, is an amazing person. He is a midfielder who is good with the ball, very technical. He can break through the lines with his quality, he can score goals and he has a lot of power in his legs. I think he’s one of the best midfielders in the world’, Morata told Chelsea’s official website.
Kovacic started his senior career with Dinamo Zagreb and then switched to Inter Milan. After a couple of campaigns with the latter, he was signed by Real Madrid in the summer of 2015. However, he struggled to cement his place in the starting line-up of the Spanish giants.
The loan move to the Stamford Bridge should help him in resurrecting his career. The 24-year-old had played with Morata while they were on the books of Real Madrid and it will be a really exciting affair if the duo manages to click together in a formidable manner at Chelsea.
