Morata praises Kovacic's incredible qualities: 'Very technical footballer & amazing person'
- Two Madridistas are now reunited at Chelsea
- Morata couldn't be happier to play alongside his friend again
"Mateo, first of all, is an amazing person," Morata has revealed in the interview to Chelsea's official website. "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.
"With him we will win a lot of possession and he has the ability to carry the ball into the final third and provide passes for the strikers. He’s a very good player which is very important for us because we need top players."

On the connection between him and Kovacic:
‘Yes, he gave me a lot of assists in Madrid,’ Morata added. ‘We enjoy playing together and I’m very happy to have him here. I think he’s one of the best midfielders in the world."
Morata has also promised to help Kovacic to adapt:
"I always try to help the new signings settle in, I remember when I first came here my team-mates helped me, and now it’s time for me to do the same."
Yesterday, Mateo Kovacic posted a strange message on Twitter that looks like a permanent farewell to Real Madrid. However, an agreement signed between Real Madrid and Chelsea on the final day of the transfer window in England clearly stated the Croatian moved to Stamford Bridge on loan. Even a possibility of a buy-out clause was rejected by virtually every source.
