Morata becomes latest Chelsea star to admit he prefers Sarri’s style over Conte’s

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has become the latest player to announce that he prefers playing under new Blues coach Maurizio Sarri as opposed to previous Stamford Bridge boss Antonio Conte.

Morata has recently been recalled to the Spain squad having missed out on a trip to the World Cup, and speaking before his La Roja’s game against England on Saturday night he emphatically stated that he feels better suited to the possession based approach of Sarri, rather than the counter-attacking style of Conte.

“Yes, yes, yes, for me, yes, not for anything, but for the style of play, it was not my style of play and I suffered a little for that,” Morata told a pre-match press conference.

Morata did however also go on to admit that he feels that he let Chelsea down somewhat last season after the Stamford Bridge outfit forked out a then club record £58 million to bring him to West London from Real Madrid.

He added: “In today’s world it is normal to be said, Chelsea made a major effort for me and this was not repaid. I should have responded twice as much, a player that they pay for cannot finish the season with 15 goals.”
