|Morata (Real Madrid vs Santos Laguna)|
The player is overcoming the challenges and will stay: "He will help us a lot this year. He's doing great and of course he is going to be with us because he is at a high level", noted the assistant coach. The truth is that Morata has delighted Mourinho, thanks to his physical performance in the recent friendly matches. Mourinho likes his character and for the coach Morata is a box-to-box player. He attacks, defends, steals balls and is a continuous nuisance for any rival.
Morata does not know how many minutes will play this season but Kaka's leaving might benefit him. The former R.M.Castilla member is a versatile player and knows how to play on the side and behind the central forward, so that the Brazilian's move would be one less obstacle in trying to enjoy a few minutes.
Mourinho's target is clear: Morata should begin to help this year as it did last year Callejon. His contribution is similar. The difference is that Morata has not had to go out and come back later. He made the jump directly from R.M.Castilla but like Callejon his work in matches and trainings is excellent. Winning a starting lineup place is still a distant point, but the player knows that the year has many matches and it can be profitable for him.
