Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has explained that he moved to Stamford Bridge because he knew he would get to play regularly.
The former Juventus frontman also revealed in an interview with TVE that he was not enjoying the fact that Real Madrid have been struggling without him this season.
Zinedine Zidane’s men are currently fourth in the La Liga table, eight points short of leaders and huge rivals Barcelona.
“I don’t know if Real Madrid miss me or not, but it’s nice that people say that,” admitted Morata, who has scored nine goals in 14 Premier League games since his €65million move.
“I wish, though, that they didn’t have to say this, as that would mean things were going well,” he continued.
“I hope [Cristiano Ronaldo] scores lots of goals at Real Madrid, although I hope he is tired by the time of the World Cup.”
“If I had been looking for things like money or a preferred city then I’d have stayed at home, as I had everything.
“But it’s knowing that you have a realistic chance of playing each game if you train well.
“I didn’t play as much last year.”
