Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has described new Blues midfielder Mateo Kovacic as an amazing player.
Kovacic joined Chelsea from Real Madrid in a season long loan deal on transfer deadline day, having struggled for regular game time at the Bernabeu in recent seasons.
Morata was a former team-mate of the talented 24-year-old Croatia international in the Spanish capital, and he has been waxing lyrical about what Kovacic will bring to Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea side this season.
“Mateo, first of all, is an amazing person,” Morata told the Chelsea‘s official website.
“He is a midfielder who is good with the ball, very technical.
“He’s a very good player which is very important for us because we need top players.
“He can break through the lines with his quality, he can score goals and he has a lot of power in his legs.
“With him we will win a lot of possession and he has the ability to carry the ball into the final third and provide passes for the strikers.”
