Simone Zaza sends heartfelt farewell to Morata
Saturday June 25 2016
The Juventus man will miss his fellow striker as he prepares to move back to Real Madrid following two seasons in Serie A but hopes to get one over on him on Monday.
Juventus striker Simone Zaza sent a touching farewell message to Alvaro Morata, all the while preparing to cross paths with him in Spain's Euro 2016 match against Italy.
Morata will return to Real Madrid after two years in Turin, after the Spanish giants exercised their option to buy him back, prompting Zaza to say goodbye via Instagram.
"Our job is like this, people coming, people going," he wrote alongside a collage of photos with his former team-mates.
"In my life there are few people that I wanted to remain forever a part of me and you are one of those.
"Some you barely come to know. With others rather deep and true friendships are born. Alvaro, with you it was like this: a team-mate and friend.
"The competition for a starting spot made us brothers. That is why, among so many farewells, this is so hard to say."
Zaza signed off by teasing the fellow forward over Monday's last-16 match.
"Alvaro, have a good life," he added. "I wish you the best because you deserve it... maybe starting from Tuesday."
