Chelsea new signing Alvaro Morata trained with the Blues squad for the first time yesterday evening in Singapore as attention turns towards Tuesday’s International Champions Cup game against Bayern Munich at the National Stadium in Singapore.
Pay Tv channel, StarTimes has promised its subscribers to air the International Champions Cup games between the Blues and the Bundesliga giants from the National Stadium in Singapore as well as the Inter Milan vs Olympic Lyon from the Nanjing Olympic Sports Centre in China live.
Morata who officially became a Chelsea player on Friday following his move from Real Madrid, was part of the group which emerged onto the training pitch at the Singapore American School at 7pm local time.
The Spanish striker headed out alongside Cesar Azpilicueta and Willy Caballero and immediately looked comfortable among his new team-mates, laughing and joking with members of the squad as they got back to work following Saturday night’s 3-0 win against Arsenal in Beijing.
After taking part in some light warm-up drills, Morata spent time with Antonio Conte who offered instructions and advice.
Pedro was missing from the group which trained yesterday evening having returned to the UK after sustaining a concussion and facial injuries following a collision with Gunners’ goalkeeper David Ospina.
Chelsea and Bayern game is seen as a rematch of the 2012 UEFA Champions League Final, which Chelsea won 4-3 on penalties.
Meanwhile, Conte has called for the Blues to put in an improved performance as a team in the International Champions Cup.
The Blues are looking to respond in good fashion after slipping to a 3-2 defeat against Real Madrid in their last outing in the tournament.
