Juventus coach Pirlo: Morata return was a priority

Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo is delighted with the return of Alvaro Morata.

Pirlo insists bringing Morata back from Atletico Madrid was always a priority.

He said, “We were waiting for a striker to come in and he's here now. I know Morata well, I was lucky enough to play with him: he was one of our priorities.

“On a technical and tactical level, he's the player we were looking for. Pellegrini went to Genoa to get more game time, also in light of next year's European Championship.

“De Sciglio's available like he was last week."
