Alvaro Morata has a big fan in the form of his Chelsea coach Antonio Conte, who labelled the Spaniard as the type of man you would want your daughter to bring home.
The two have been reunited in London after the striker’s big money move from Real Madrid during the summer transfer window.
It comes after their spell together in Turin with Juventus and Morata has already settled well into life at Stamford Bridge.
“I like him because he’s a complete player but he has a lot of room for improvement in every area. He’s very committed on a technical, tactical and physical level,” said the Italian.
“His behaviour is always fantastic. It is all a process and when I talk about him needing to improve, I’m also referring to a sense of being more aggressive.
“It is the right time for him at the age of 24. He’s a very good boy. If you had a daughter, he’d be the kind of person you’d want with her, even to marry her!”
However, while Conte was happy to discuss one Spain international striker at length, he was less willing to dwell on Diego Costa, who is on the verge of joining Atletico Madrid.
“I’m not interested in talking about the past,” he added. “I don’t think the past is important. For everyone, the past stays there.”
