Juventus' Leonardo Bonucci Fires Warning To Ex-Teammate Alvaro Morata

Leonardo Bonucci has issued a message to Alvaro Morata ahead of Juventus' Champions League game against Atletico Madrid.

Morata secured a transfer away from Chelsea in the January window by moving to Atletico Madrid.

He's yet to open his account since joining but he has the chance to score versus his former team as Atletico host Juventus in the Champions League round of 16 first-leg.

Morata's expected to start on Wednesday and ahead of lining up for 'Atleti' against Juventus, Bonucci has fired a warning.

"He's a good friend and I've already warned him that when he steps on the pitch, I'll be breathing down his neck," he told AS.

Morata and Bonucci spent two seasons together in the Serie A, and the veteran defender will be hoping to keep his ex-teammate quiet when they meet.

Bonucci has also branded Juventus' draw as 'a tricky obstacle'.

"They are a difficult side and Simeone gives no quarter. A tricky obstacle in our quest to lift the trophy and it's imperative that we score one goal at the Metropolitano," he added.

Before highlighting Atletico Madrid's most dangerous players.

"Griezmann is a quality player but there are others. Diego Costa, Morata, Saúl, Godín, Koke...I could go on. We need to be strong in the tackle and fight for every ball."

Not to mention naming his contenders for the Champions League.

"Real Madrid will always be contenders but there are four or five sides who are in with a shout and I'd never underestimate the likes of Bayern Munich."
