Enrique asks police to investigate Morata and his family’s threat
Spain coach Luis Enrique has called on police to investigate the death threats made against striker Alvaro Morata and to give a “strong response”. Morata said that he and his children had received death threats on social media after their disappointing performance in the group stage of the European Nations Cup Euro 2020. Although Morata scored a goal in the Poland match, the Juventus striker missed several easy chances in front of the goal, as well as a penalty kick in the Slovakia match. “I think it’s really up to the police,” Enrique said Sunday ahead of Spain’s match against Croatia in the round of 16. Because when it comes to death threats, directed at family and children, this is a serious crime.. I think it is up to the authorities, as it must be met with a strong response.” Swedish striker Markus Berg was also subjected to many abuses on social media, and he and his sons received threats after he missed an opportunity in front of the open goal during the goalless draw with Spain in the European Football Championship 2020, which prompted the rest of the players to support him.
