Morata: I needs goals to be happy

Alvaro Morata has admitted he could be happier at Chelsea, but that will only happen once he starts scoring more often.

The 25-year-old Spain international striker moved to Stamford Bridge from Real Madrid last summer, but he had a disappointing first season in English Football overall, scoring 15 goals in 48 appearances.

He has looked short of confidence again this season and had slipped behind Olivier Giroud in Maurizio Sarri’s starting XI, although he has found the net in his last two appearances for the Blues; in the Europa League against MOL Vidi and against Southampton in the Premier League.

“I am a happy person, especially off the field, outside of football,” Morata told El Mundo.

“Within football, I would like to be happier and for that, I have to score more goals, which is what makes me happy. But I am sure that little by little they will enter because I am having occasions.

“I have more confidence. Last week I made two goals for Chelsea and the other day, against Wales, I worked for the team.

“I am very happy to be here and now I have to fight to play.”
