Chelsea boss Antonio Conte responds to Alvaro Morata's interview controversy

Eden Hazard

"I came here because there was a coach like Antonio Conte", Morata told Gazzetta dello Sport. If Chelsea offered me a contract for ten years, maybe I would have signed it. I am very happy at the club. I enjoy my time.

"If I can make good and improve I can maybe stay here longer than five years".

"We had a problem of understanding in this interview", Morata insisted when asked if he is committed to the Premier League champions.

"In the interview I wanted to say, probably in the future when I finish in my career, I won't live in London".

"I came here because there was a coach like Antonio Conte, we started talking about my eventual transfer last spring and finally I really landed in London", Morata said. "I need to score many goals otherwise Chelsea would buy another player, it is normal".

"But I'm very happy with his performance. I really enjoy London".

Morata joined Chelsea this summer, bringing his hard second spell at Real to an end.

The former Real Madrid forward was quoted as saying that he did not see himself living in London much longer as it was a very stressful place. Six Premier League goals in 10 appearances is a great haul in anyone's book, and his overall play has impressed the Stamford Bridge faithful.

However, perhaps more concerning for the club - particularly in the wake of Diego Costa's constant pining for Madrid - was the warmth in which Morata still clearly holds Italy.

"The disappointment (of leaving Juventus) was enormous, I found myself back to the starting point".

"They treated me like the guy I was before my two seasons in Italy".

The Spaniard said he will eventually move back to his home country once his career finishes, admitting there are elements of London he does not like such the amount of traffic and people. You've got all the beauty, history, art, good food and fashion.

Morata has never scored against Roma despite spending two years in Italy with Juventus and wants to break his duck against them.

"I know very well where he's living now with his wife".
