Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has cited again Antonio Conte’s style of play as one of the reasons of his fickle first season at Stamford Bridge.
Speaking to Spanish radio Cadena Ser he was asked about whether he enjoys life under Maurizio Sarri more, he was pretty emphatic in his answer.
“Yes, yes, yes. For me, yes,” he replied.
He explained that he should have taken time off instead of forcing himself to play through it:
“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.”
