Alvaro Morata spoke about his emotional return to Atletico Madrid and how it was very easy for him to decide to leave Chelsea.
“I’m very happy and proud to be here,” Morata said. “I can’t wait to start training, meet my new teammates and play.”
“Simeone didn’t have to convince me to join, my life has taken many detours, but it was destiny that I would arrive here,” Morata explained in his presentation. “I’m happy and proud to be here, I can’t wait to train with my new teammates. I thank all those who are present today, Michelangelo and Andrea, I’m really proud to be back at this club, it’s my childhood team, I have so many happy memories, it means a lot to be here.”
“Everything else stopped when Atleti appeared,” Morata admitted. “Everything that has happened before is history, I’m here now and everything appears very beautiful. I can’t wait to start working, to see Koke, who was taller than me the last time I was here.”
The player has joined the club on a 18-month loan period with Atletico having an option to buy him at the end.
