Alvaro Morata joined Chelsea from Real Madrid in the summer of 2017 and the Spanish striker started brilliantly, scoring seven goals in his first seven games for Chelsea.
Morata then struggled to keep up his brilliant start, as he scored just four goals in the next 24 games for Chelsea.
The striker opened up about his struggles for Chelsea last season in an interview with Spanish media outlet El Mundo.
“I’ve learned many things from last season. It was very difficult for me,” Morata said.
“I left home to play the World Cup and I wasn’t included in the squad anyway.
“Now that my two sons are born I can control my emotions a bit better, both the positive and negative ones. I am happy when I am outside the pitch.
“I’d like to be happier when I play. I need to score more goals in order to be happier. I was really sad a few months ago.
“I wasn’t depressed but I didn’t live my situation very well. People used to love me, I scored seven goals in the first seven games at Chelsea.
“Then I got injured and I was playing even if I was feeling pain. There was lot of tension and I didn’t want to speak to anybody.
“One day my wife told me that I wasn’t handling the situation in the right way. I was angry because I thought she was against me too.”
