EPL: Morata names five world best strikers as his role models

Browse By

Chelsea star, Alvarro Morata, has named five world best strikers he would want to be like them.

The Spain international said he would love to be like Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero, Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Liverpool stars, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, because they score a lot of goals.

The 26-year-old has scored five goals in his last six appearances for manager, Maurizio Sarri’s side, including a brace during Sunday’s 3-1 win over Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League encounter.

“Of course I want [to be among the top scorers] but I think it is not the most important thing,” Metro UK quoted Morata as saying.

“If we want to be in a position to fight for the Premier League I need to score many goals, Eden has to score many goals, Olivier has to score many goals and all the attackers, Willian, Pedro, Ross Barkley.

“We need goals to win. It is not the most important thing [to be top scorer]. Sometimes you play good and you give a lot of things for the team and you don’t score, and it seems like you play bad.

“In the Premier League there are the best strikers in the world I think. There is Salah, there is Mane, there is Firmino, Aguero, Kane.

“In Spain and Italy there are good strikers but here you have 10 strikers who can score every weekend and it is very hard, but at the end of the season the important thing is to be in the first place [in the League].

“If you score 15 or 20, that is good because we are strikers and we want to score but we need to win also.

“I need to work a lot to be like them. I have started scoring again for two weeks and now I am happy, the team plays good and I don’t need to think about scoring more goals than other players.

“For sure I always want to score because it is good for me and sometimes people think I don’t like to score, but there are good defenders and good keepers.

“But now I think I have more chances than last year. Last year I could only score with headers and this year I don’t score with headers, it is different, but the most important thing is I finally find the right way and my head is okay.”

Morata will be hoping to lead Chelsea to victory when they take on BATE on Thursday in the Europa League clash.
