Players often claim they’re misquoted and it appears to be the case with Alvaro Morata who suggested in an interview with an Italian newspaper that he misses Italy and finds London stressful.
Morata moved to Chelsea in the summer after spells with Real Madrid and Juventus, with the striker looking the part for the London club although some supporters are concerned that he’s not settled off the pitch.
However, the player has moved to reject such talk and claimed he would be happy to remain with Chelsea for the next ten years.
“If Chelsea proposed me 10 years I’d probably sign that too. I’m happy with this club, in this city, with everything in London. I really like London and probably, if I make good and improve, probably I can stay here more than five years. But I need to score many goals otherwise Chelsea will buy another player. It’s normal.
“We have a communication problem with this interview. I wanted to say, probably in the future when I finish in my career, I won’t live in London. But now, at the moment, I’m very happy in London and enjoy living in London with my wife.
“In the future, when I need to bring my child to school, or when I finish my career, I’d prefer to come back to my country. It’s normal. I prefer the place I was born. But now I’m very happy. When I say it’s a stressful city, I’m only talking about the traffic and that there are a lot of people there. But it’s an incredible city with many religions and many kinds of different people, so I really enjoy London.”
