How’s that back problem coming along, Alvaro?
Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata showcased his dance moves – despite fears he could be out for the rest of the season with a back injury.
His wife Alice Campello uploaded a video on to her Instagram account showing the loved-up couple dancing at home.
But putting extra strain on that dodgy back with a series of lifts might not make pleasant viewing for Chelsea and their boss Antonio Conte.
Even fans were quick to comment on the video, telling the Spaniard that he should “focus on his game”, and to be “careful not to get injured”.
It is not known when the video was filmed.
Chelsea’s £50million Spanish striker, 25, has already missed four games with the problem that is “not improving” despite intensive treatment.
And boss Conte will now have to fast-track new signing Olivier Giroud into taking over up front, despite the Frenchman’s own recent fitness concerns.
However despite his manager’s and club’s concerns, Morata has reportedly “declared himself fit” for the Premier League clash against West Brom tonight.
Chelsea face bottom-of-the-table Baggies on Monday, looking to turn around a run of two successive defeats, having conceded seven goals and scored just one.
But according to Conte, they must do it without their former Real Madrid star Morata.
Conte said: “Morata no. Giroud has trained and will be in contention.
“We are talking a lot about bad results, but sometimes we forget we are facing a serious situation.
“Players like Morata, for us, are very important and have been missing for a long period of time.
“I don’t know how long he will be out for.
“We are struggling a lot to find a solution to solve the pain in his back.
“If you ask me whether he needs a day, a month or the rest of the season, I don’t know.
“For this reason, I’m a bit worried. You know very well the importance of the player.”
