Alvaro Morata has hit out at Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino over claims he didn’t want to compete with Harry Kane, Sky Sports reports.
The North-London side were interested in Morata two years ago but stated that he wanted to stay at Real Madrid.
After Chelsea signed Morata in the summer, Pochettino came out of his shell talking about a conversation he had with the striker.
As reported to Sky Sports, according to the Argentine, Morata questioned the manager saying:
“Why do you want me if you have Harry Kane?”
When speaking to Sky Sports, Morata claims he never said this and would have enjoyed playing with the clinical English striker.
Morata is quoted by Sky Sports saying:
“For sure I would like to play with Kane, he’s a big player, one of the best strikers in the world, but in this moment when I spoke with him (Pochettino) there was no chance to leave Real Madrid.”
Both Morata and Kane have lit up the Premier League this season. Kane is the top scorer in the league with 18 goals. Whilst, our talisman already 10 league goals in his first season in English football.
A strike partner suits Morata
There’s no doubt that having a player upfront with the Spaniard has been beneficial for the team.
Eden Hazard has been that man and the two have combined brilliantly.
The Blues may well be in for another striker in January which will only help our number nine.
