Allegri’s new managerial role began with the confirmation of the Spaniard, who at the European Championships confirmed the fame attributed to him by the Livorno coach.
“He gives his best in dry matches, he decides them”. The photograph of Alvaro Morata taken over time by Max Allegri often returns to the topicality, and inevitably also after the evening in Copenhagen in which the Juve center forward rekindled Spain with an extra goal in the first in-out of the European Championship. imploded at the end of the regulations and on the brink of the abyss, like other noble national teams who then ended up in the abyss, from France to Portugal to Holland. La Roja no, on the shoulders of the reviled Alvaro.
In the analysis of his performances we often focus on mistakes, on the tendency to dance a little too much on the wrong side of the offside line, on the character issue. Nothing far-fetched, all motivated by the evidence of performance, without however making sense that this degenerates into the insults and threats that Alvaro and his family have been subjected to at home. But it all comes down to the way in which Luis Enrique, Spain coach closes every speech: “There is no coach of a national team who does not praise him.”
The forward that the coaches like was the first transfer market operation of manager Allegri, who as soon as he took office in the “new” role immediately endorsed the renewal of Morata’s loan from Atletico Madrid. This Morata, also in light of the consideration of the coach, is much more than the first of the reserves of the Juventus attack: this summer so far not easy with the national team the Spaniard asks to consecrate his ambitions for a starting position also in Juve which will come, also by virtue of characteristics that were already unique in the organic last year.
No one knows who the other strikers will be? It does not matter. “He is one of the few players in the world who can play with any type of teammate, whether he is first striker, second or other”, is another famous definition that Max Allegri said of Morata. Who from 2014 to 2016 had coached a young man who came out of the noble Cantera Real but still on the launching pad, making him a center forward for the final of the Champions League, and now he finds himself a striker back from a season that in the discontinuity and in the team difficulties has yielded 20 goals and 12 assists. And let’s see how the European Championship will end.
