Morata Admits Tough Criticism

Morata Admits Tough Criticism

Morata joined Chelsea from Real Madrid for £58m and has since played two preseason games and came on as a substitute for Chelsea, playing on 15 minutes but admits the criticism is huge even for his short time at Stanford Bridge.

The Striker said, his price tag gives him motivation to work hard, try to give more but agrees that it brings more criticism for him and that more is expected in the future.

"I admit it's a very important amount but I have the personality to play calmly and to stay on my path," he told Marca . "I've only had two pre-season games, 15 minutes officially and a missed penalty, and they're already killing me, so I know what's ahead.

"It's the price you have to pay for such a big transfer. It's something that motivates me and makes me work harder every day. I know that twice as many people are looking at me now.

"It's been a long, strange summer, in which I've had to make decisions. I wasn't fresh and I couldn't train well. Now I have to adapt to a new team with an Italian coach who's very tactical. But I've already adapted and I'm excited to play."

The Need To know The Coach

"I have to understand Conte well. He asks me the opposite of what my previous coaches have asked me. I'll play in different positions and in different systems of play," he said.

"I don't think I need to adapt to the Premier League, but to my new coach.

"I knew he wanted me and I talked to him a number of times. In a way, I felt indebted to him because he signed me for Juve and then had to go."

Leaving Madrid Was Difficult But Personal

"I think I had to leave Madrid," he added. "It was a difficult situation; I was leaving a team that's my home and who are winning everything at the moment.

"But it was a personal decision; it was to do with sporting ambition. If it had been for my team-mates, I would have stayed. I left because I want to succeed in football, to do great things. I'm at the best place to do that."
