Real Madrid’s struggles in front of goal have led many supporters of Los Blancos to lament the club’s decision to sell Alvaro Morata to Chelsea last summer and the player is aware that many in the Spanish capital miss him.
The striker explained that it’s nice to know he’s missed, but that he’d rather Real Madrid were still winning without him.
“I don’t know if Real Madrid miss me or not, but it’s nice that people say that,” he said in an interview with TVE.”I wish, though, that they didn’t have to say this, as that would mean things were going well.
“I hope [Cristiano Ronaldo] scores lots of goals at Real Madrid, although I hope he is tired by the time of the World Cup.”Morata also discussed his new life in London and spoke of how he has settled in.
“Technically [England] is not like Spain, but all of the players are very physically strong,” the 25-year-old pointed out.
“The dressing rooms are also smaller than those I’ve been in before and ours is wooden.”If I had been looking for things like money or a preferred city then I’d have stayed at home, as I had everything.
“But it’s knowing that you have a realistic chance of playing each game if you train well.
“I didn’t play as much last year.”He also explained that Antonio Conte is a very demanding coach, but that this forces players to step out of their comfort zone.
