Morata: 'I feel wanted at Juventus'

Alvaro Morata explains why he has rediscovered his form at Juventus. ‘The motivation is the same as any person needs in life, to feel wanted and loved.’

The Spaniard bagged another two goals today in the 4-1 win over Ferencvaros in Budapest.

“I said when I came back here that I felt like a more complete player and I matured as a person by going through the good and bad in my career. It was all a learning experience,” Morata told Sky Sport Italia.

“The motivation I want in my football is the same as any person needs in life, to feel wanted and loved. I think I have all that I need at Juventus. I can still improve and I believe we’ll continue to grow together and go far.”

Morata also reunited with Cristiano Ronaldo, having been very young when working as his teammate at Real Madrid.

“I don’t need to tell you what Ronaldo represents and what he brings to the team. He’s a great teammate, he talks to everyone, helps everyone and is our most important player. We all hope he can continue scoring and take us to the level he has envisaged in his mind.”

Juve director Fabio Paratici said that they chose Morata because he can play alongside Ronaldo or Paulo Dybala.

“I know they have their characteristics and I must make the most of their qualities to be in the right place for a goal or a pass. I am at the disposal of the team and don’t mind adapting to their characteristics with my movement.”
