Alvaro Morata gets hurt and misses Inter. Simeone turns up the heat

No Inter for Alvaro Morata: the Atletico Madrid striker was injured in the last La Liga match against Sevilla and will have to forfeit the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 against the Nerazzurri. Morata is expected to return in time for the return match in Madrid, scheduled for March 3.

"Alvaro Morata had to be substituted in the final minutes of the first half of the match played at Pizjuán against Sevilla: on Monday morning è an MRI was carried out to ascertain the'extent of the injury and from the report provided by the medical staff it appears that he suffered a bone contusion and a strain of the inner lateral ligament of the right knee".

The stop should be around 3 weeks: "Thank God, my knee injury is not è serious. Thank you very much for the nice messages. I also hope that the people who send soì many messages of hate can have as much desire to be happy and work hard. I will soon be back at my best".

Meanwhile, Simeone turned up the heat on the sidelines of the match against Sevilla: "Inter play Friday, we play Saturday, thanks to La Liga and thanks to the Federation", hissed the Cholo. The Nerazzurri on Friday, 4 p.m. will face Salernitana, while the Colchoneros will take the field on Saturday at 2 p.m. against Las Palmas.
