Morata reassured Atlético’s leaders at the beginning of the season. The Madrid forward commented to the representatives of the Madrid club that he had complete confidence in his possibilities and told them to be calm because he planned to perform at a good level. “Be calm, I will do a good job with Atlético and with Spain,” Morata told them.. And the tip has complied, since he had a good participation with the Spanish team in the World Cup.
Morata scored three goals for Spain in 183 minutes in the World Cup. Against Japan he did start, but in the other games he had to come off the bench. The Atlético player responded to what Luis Enrique expected of him and now it is his turn to return to the rojiblanca discipline. Morata suffered a severe setback with the rojiblanca elimination from Europe, but now he is already thinking about LaLiga and the Cup.
Morata has scored five goals in the 14 league games played so far in this 2022-23 season. And he gave an assist. His role in the Champions League was less important, since he did not score. And he didn’t show up either. In the Champions League he passed without pain or glory. Morata wants to vindicate himself in the second part of the exercise and surely his participation in the World Cup will have given him morale.
At 30 years old, and with a contract until 2024, the striker knows that the offensive weight of the rojiblanco team will fall on him for the remainder of the league championship and in the Cup. A permanent starter for Simeone, Cholo has always looked for a companion for him: João Félix, Correa… Cunha’s departure means that he has no direct competition for the position. The Brazilian occupies Morata’s position, but he will leave in this winter market, one more sign that both Simeone and the Atlético leaders trust him.
