Alvaro Morata has recalled his time at Chelsea as ‘everything but happy’!
The Spanish forward joined Chelsea back in the summer of 2017. He was back then a record signing for the club.
He was signed by Antonio Conte to replace Diego Costa. However, Morata never quite lived up to the billing. After a fast start to life at England, the forward lost his way and was never the striker Chelsea paid the big money for.
In an interview that will be aired on Spanish TV programme Jugones this Wednesday, as reported by AS, the striker revealed: “I didn’t feel like doing anything, leaving home, talking to people, nothing.”
He added: “The only thing I had in mind was going to the World Cup, playing and being happy … and in the end I was quite the opposite of happy.”
He added: “I did think about playing somewhere very far away, without pressure, without having to win every Sunday, without having to concentrate for matches.”
Morata is now again happy playing for Atletico Madrid where he is performing brilliantly. He is the lead frontman for Diego Simeone’s team, ironically with Diego Costa as his partner.
