Conte Made Me Suffer – Alvaro Morata

Published

on

Chelsea striker, Alvaro Morata, has claimed that Antonio Conte’s tactics were part of the reason he “suffered” in his first season in the Premier League.

Morata made a bright start to his career in England, scoring six goals in six league appearances at the start of 2017/2018, but things quickly went downhill for the Spain international.

He only scored a further five goals in the top flight and four in cup competitions.

When asked if he feels more comfortable with Maurizio Sarri in charge, Morata told Cadena SER: “Yes, yes, yes. For me, yes. It’s not for nothing, but for the style of play.

“It wasn’t my style of play and I suffered a little because of that.”

Morata admits he would do things differently if the problem reared its head again.

“In today’s world, it’s normal that these [critical] things are said,” he added.

“Chelsea made a huge effort for me and it wasn’t returned. I should have repaid them double. A player they pay for can’t finish the season with 15 goals.

“People think we’re machines. If I had stopped for three months, I would have come back with a clear head, but I was professional and I wanted to give everything.

“If I could go back, I would stop for two months. I was in pain, I went to Germany to see the doctor, paying for private planes. People believe the false life of Instagram, what it shows you; they thought I was at home with my wife. Someday, I’ll write a book about what I’ve been through.”
