Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has revealed that he had a period of rain at Stamford Bridge since joining the side from Real Madrid.
The Spaniard has admitted that he wants to score as many goals as Liverpool forward Sadio Mane and Tottenham striker Harry Kane.
The 26-year-old arrived with huge expectations after completing a £58million move in the summer of 2017.
However, the Spain international has now failed to make his mark as he scored just five goals in 10 league appearances so far this season.
“At the end of the season, if we want to fight for the Premier League, I need to score many goals, Eden [Hazard] has to score many goals, the other strikers, Willian, Pedro, [Ross] Barkley,” Morata said.
“There is Hazard, there is [Sadio] Mane, [Roberto] Firmino, [Sergio] Aguero, [Harry] Kane.”
“This is the league with the best strikers in the world. I don’t need to think about scoring more goals than other players.”
“I had a period where everything – if it is raining, I’m angry because it’s raining.”
“If I miss, it’s because the pitch is too wet. It was only excuses. It is not good.”
“Everyone can have a bad period in their life, but we are famous, we have a lot of things.”
“Sometimes people think we are not human, with no feelings, with no problems.”
“The important thing is to find the right balance. Now, I have, and I am very happy. I’m better.”
“In the last month of last season, I was down, down, down, down. I cannot be more down.”
“When you touch the limit, the only thing you can do is to come back.”
