Morata: I was wrong to rejoin Madrid


Alvaro Morata admitted it was a mistake for him to rejoin Real Madrid due to the way they treated him in his first spell at the club.

The 25-year-old returned to the Bernabeu in 2016 for a sole season after spending two years with Italian champions Juventus but stated he was treated ‘like a child’ at the end of his first spell at Los Blancos.

“We had a contract agreements that we had to respect,” Morata explained in an interview with Gazzetta Dello Sport.

“I was really disappointed as I went back to being at square one…before I moved to Italy I was treated like a kid, and I should never have rejoined Madrid.


“Differences between the league? In Spain they prefers technique, in Italy tactics dominate but it is also supplemented by quality. In England, the most important aspect is physicality.

“Would I want to return to Italy? Yes, very much! My wife wants to live in Spain and me in Italy, so London is a compromise!”
