Atletico Madrid coach Simeone: Diego Costa happy for Morata

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone insists that Diego Costa is happy for his strike partner Alvaro Morata.

The former missed out on a place in the starting XI against Athletic Club on Saturday, whereas Morata scored their second in a 2-0 win.

"Diego's happy," Simeone said ahead of Tuesday's game with Alaves.

"Morata scored and he's had continuity.

"They're friends and working together to win matches, which is what interests us."
