Alvaro Morata is the recipient of high praise from manager, Massimiliano Allegri , backing the forward to become a key player for Juventus.
Morata came off the bench to provide an assist for Zaza and the third goal in the 3-0 win over Palermo on Sunday.
And with major speculation surrounding Morata’s future and a possible return to Madrid, Allegri has backed the 23-year old to become aa star.
“In contrast to last season, when he was behind Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente in the pecking order, Alvaro is one of our first-choice strikers this year,” Allegri told his post-match news conference.
“His assist for Simone Zaza’s strike was a sign of what he is capable of and he’ll become a key player for Juventus.”
