Alvaro Morata ‘tells Man United players to suck d**k’ after FA Cup final

Allegedly, of course...

Simon Lloyd

Ah, the FA Cup… The oldest, most prestigious national football cup competition in the world.

Ask anyone who’s been fortunate enough to win it and they’ll tell you that it’s quite a big deal – a real moment to savour, to drink in.

Or, if you’re Alvaro Morata, a moment to tell your defeated opponents to “suck dick”. Allegedly.

Yep, having appeared as a late substitute for Chelsea as they defeated Manchester United at Wembley on Saturday, footage of the Spaniard claims to show him launching into a foul-mouthed outburst in the tunnel.

According to The Metro, Morata can be heard yelling ‘¡vamos ostia! ¡Que chupen pola!’, which translates as: “F**k yeah! They can suck our d***s!”

The magic of the cup, eh?

Eden Hazard scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot, bringing a positive ending to an otherwise miserable season for Chelsea. Champions last season, they finished fifth, missing out on qualification for next season’s Champions League.

It’s been a frustrating spell for Morata, who was Chelsea’s biggest signing last summer when he arrived from Real Madrid. United were also heavily linked with signing him, though this changed when it emerged Romelu Lukaku was available.

The 25-year-old has already been linked with a departure from Stamford Bridge, with former club Juventus reportedly expressing an interest in taking him back to Turin.
