Morata reveals that Simeone asked him for…

07 May 2017

Diego Simeone was caught on camera muttering something to Alvaro Morataduring the first leg of the Champions League Madrid derby last Tuesday night and the Real Madrid striker has finally revealed what was said.

While some claimed he was urging the striker to move across the city to Atletico Madrid, the coach insisted afterwards that he’d only shared a joke with the player and Morata backed that up on Saturday night.

“Simeone had a joke with me, one which had nothing to do with football,” the 24-year-old said after scoring a brace in Granada.

“I know him because he played with [my agent] Juanma Lopez and he asked me for some croissants from the brand I have launched.”

The brand in question is Crosantino, a gourmet bakery with a shop in the centre of the Spanish capital.
