Simeone: I am happy with Morata’s impact

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has praised the impact of loan signing Alvaro Morata, after he netted twice in their 2-0 win at Real Sociedad on Sunday.

Morata joined Los Rojiblancos in January on loan until the end of the season, from Premier League side Chelsea, and he now has three goals in his last two appearances. 

His brace at the Anoeta means that Atletico remain seven points behind leaders Barcelona, and his manager was full of praise.

"When we sign a player we always envisage their best side, and some adapt better than others.

"Not just for his goals, I am happy for his performances and for the work he is putting in and how he has adapted.

"He is meeting all the requirements."
