Alvaro Morata reveals why he joined Chelsea

Alvaro Morata has always been expressive about his desire to spend more time on the pitch and like any ambitious player, the Spaniard too switched clubs in the hope of getting regular minutes on the field. In a report by IBtimes, Morata has expressed the gratitude he has for Conte, who was the ‘one person’ who believed in him.

Being a Castilla player, Alvaro Morata, always wanted to thrive at Real Madrid. But couldn’t break into the main team due to the presence of Karim Benzema. Morata still believes that Zinedine Zidane didn’t show enough faith in him, which ultimately made things easier for him to switch clubs.

The striker had a rocky start to the campaign after missing a penalty against Arsenal in the FA Community Shield, but soon found the back of the net in the first match of the Premier League. He then went on to score a hat-trick against Stoke and even scored the equaliser against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

When asked about being the focal point of attack, he expressed how excited and happy he is to take on a new challenge.

“Was it a big move for me to become the first-choice striker? It’s the most important thing. It’s (moving to England) always a difficult challenge. It’s the most competitive league in the world. Yes, it’s physical. And it’s the league with the most teams who can win the title,” he concluded.

Chelsea will face league leaders Manchester City at Stamford Bridge tomorrow.
