Atletico Madrid striker, Diego Costa, has tipped Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata to return to form in time for the World Cup.
Morata was tipped to return to form in time to reclaim his place in Spain’s World Cup squad by the man he succeeded at Chelsea.
Morata joined the Blues in a £57million switch from Real Madrid last summer as Costa’s replacement.
He begun his career at Stamford Bridge well, before the goals dried up. Morata ended a barren 13-match run, by scoring the opener in Sunday’s FA Cup victory at Leicester.
The goal came too late to earn him a spot in Julen Lopetegui’s squad for Spain’s upcoming friendlies against Germany and Argentina.
But Costa insists he wishes Morata well and has backed him to soon reclaim a spot in the squad.
“I do not feel more liberated, I miss him, we get along very well. Nothing has been easy in my life.
“Morata is a great person, a great footballer, he is having a bad time but he is starting to score again. I want him, me and everyone if possible.
“The pressure is the same, being a forward of the National Team represents a lot,” he said.
