Alvaro Morata ‘looks like he needs a CUDDLE’, says Man Utd icon Gary Neville as Eni Aluko brands him ‘sensitive striker’

MANCHESTER UNITED legend Gary Neville says Spain striker Alvaro Morata looks like he ‘needs a cuddle’.

The former Chelsea man has fluffed a number of chances for Luis Enrique’s side already at Euro 2020.

He has scored one goal, but at time has struggled to adapt to Spain’s patient passing style.

Ahead of Spain’s crucial clash against Slovakia that they need to win to guarantee making the last-16, Morata was the topic of discussion for the ITV studio guests.

Former England Women’s star Eni Aluko described the 28-year-old as being a ‘sensitive striker’.

And Neville agreed.

He said: “He has that vulnerable look about him, like he needs a cuddle.

“When he misses a chance, it’s like he fears what the media will say.

“He’s not a [Robert] Lewandowski, a [Harry] Kane, steely eyed, he’s not that, he’s very different.”

Former Chelsea and Arsenal star Ashley Cole says Morata reminds him of Fernando Torres and his struggles at Stamford Bridge.

The 40-year-old explained: “He reminds me of Fernando Torres when he came to Chelsea.

“At Liverpool he was scoring all kinds of goals, he was in and out of the Chelsea team and found it difficult at time.

“I think he needs an arm around him, and Luis Enrique has given him that.”

Torres starred at Liverpool leading Chelsea to sign him for £50million in 2011 – but he failed to recapture anything like what the Anfield faithful saw of him.

Both Neville and Cole agreed that Morata could be struggling to be the head of Spain’s patient formation.

Neville said: “He needs crosses in the box but Spain don’t play like that.”

And Cole added: “He reminds me of Fernando Torres when he came to Chelsea.

“At Liverpool he was scoring all kinds of goals, he was in and out of the Chelsea team and found it difficult at time.

“I think he needs an arm around him, and Luis Enrique has given him that.”
