What Morata told Chelsea fans after scoring hat-trick
The Spain striker scored a hat-trick for Chelsea on Saturday, and has said something to the Chelsea fans.
Alvaro Morata was grateful to fans for coming up with an acceptable new song in his honour, Chelsea have claimed.
Blues supporters ditched a previous anti-semitic chant that included the Y-word a line about Morata hating Tottenham.
Thousands of travelling fans yesterday joined in a new song as the Spaniard bagged a hat-trick.
“He comes from sunny Spain, he’s better than Harry Kane”, boasted Chelsea fans as their £60million striker inspired a 4-0 win over Stoke City.
Earlier this season the club called on supporters to stop singing the anti-semitic song and warned that prosecutions could follow for anyone who continued.
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte said: “Our fans were fantastic today.
“In Stoke’s stadium, the crowd push a lot. I want to thank our fans because I repeat they helped the team a lot today. It was a good chant as well. I am pleased.”
A Chelsea spokesman said afterwards that Morata was grateful for the support and the new tribute chant.
Romelu Lukaku last week appealed for Manchester United supporters to stop singing a song that made reference to his manhood.
But many United fans defied the plea during Saturday’s 1-0 win at Southampton.
