Chelsea striker Morata: Why I quit Real Madrid – and what Zidane said

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata says he quit Real Madrid in order to play regularly.

Morata, speaking with Marca, says the decision was an easy one to make.

He revealed: “In the end the only decisive factor is that I needed something that Real Madrid could not give me and that I would not be able to have, that was playing every Sunday, for right or wrong.

“Now I have been three games away from the best physical form and I have continued playing. It is what I needed. Real Madrid is Real Madrid and any player wants to be in Real Madrid.

“Why I wanted to leave Real Madrid? I needed to play. Nothing else. It has been said that I did not want to fight. I have fought all my life to play for being in Real Madrid, for trying to be in the starting lineup. All my life, but I needed to play and at Chelsea I found what I needed.”

Morata was also asked about his relationship with coach Zinedine Zidane.

“He told me: ‘Alvaro, I understand that if you want to play and have continuity, I see it logical that you leave’.

“He told me that if I wanted to stay, I would stay, but also that there were many options in attack. I decided that it was best to leave because there was a World Cup ahead and I wanted to be in it. I want to be important for Spain and for that I had to have a continuity – and that is what I am having.”
