Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho regards Alvaro Morata as a first team player.

Mourinho is giving Morata more minutes this season and played him again against Ajax.

"Morata is a first team player who has Higuaín and Benzema ahead of him. He is improving and every minute he plays he plays well. Today has played 10 minutes, yesterday another 10 and tomorrow another 10. He played in Mallorca, Levante, here in the cup... it is a pity that Cheryshev could not play, who we also like. We would have liked him to come on but because Pepe went on he couldn't."
