The Daily Drool: Alvaro Morata

1 Mar

Álvaro Borja Morata Martín was born in Madrid on October 23, 1992. (A Scorpio like me!) He makes me feel old and filthy just looking at him. This more than qualifies him for day 2 of Muppet Babies Week! Let’s learn a bit more about him, shall we?

This little muppet is a killer forward for Real Madrid Castilla. He signed with us in 2008 (from Getafe) and was promoted to Castilla in 2010. There were rumors that he would move up to the first team after Pipita’s injury, but Mou said that he wasn’t ready yet for the starting line up and he needed to spend more time at Castilla. However, he did say that Morata will be a great forward for Real Madrid and he is going to be on the first team next year! Pretty high praise! Morata was called up to the first team and made his debut on December 12, 2010 coming on vs. Real Zaragoza in the 88th minute for DiMaria. He also played on December 22nd, subbing in at the 77th minute for Karim Benzema in the Copa Del Rey. He came very close to scoring at one point and he was crushed when he didn’t. His teammates Pepe & Pedro Leon were there to offer support, but it looked a tad…inappropriate. However, the Santiago Bernabeu faithful chanted his name and it must have been an amazing day for him.

The fan fic just writes itself, people. I don’t even have to say a word!

Morata scored his first career hat trick on February 13, 2011 as Castilla trounced Deportivo B. (Glad someone can score against Deportivo and yes, I’m bitchily pouting after this weekend. Grrrr!) Get used to seeing this little bebe. He’ll be joining the big boys soon and hopefully, he will bring his scoring prowess with him! Not a moment too soon, IMHO.  One more quick picture for the road!
