Alvaro Morata is pleased to be turning around his misfortunes after moving to Atletico Madrid.
The Spaniard grabbed a brace against Real Sociedad on Sunday to help his team get the La Liga win away from home. He now has a record of 3 goals in his last 2 matches and the striker could not wait to express his delight after the weekend match.
He told beIN SPORTS, “Most of the time, forwards are judged by their goals but, above all, I have adapted well and quickly. I am very happy because I have had a bad time in the past. I have adapted quickly thanks to the help of everybody at the club and my colleagues.”
Morata is currently on an 18-month loan from Chelsea and has already started to impress under Diego Simeone.
The Argentinian boss also added, “When we sign a player we always envision his best side, some adapt faster than others. More than for his goals, I am happy for the work he is putting and for how he has adapted to the team. Those who have hierarchy take less time to adapt, he is not a kid and he meets the conditions we set for him.”
The 25-year-old is sincerely happy to put his past struggles at London behind him.
However, one should take note that the first 6 months of his stay with Chelsea had looked equally promising. It was after half a season and an injury that he really started to misfire in front of goal.
