Morata: ‘More difficult in Italy’

Alvaro Morata believes Juventus find things more difficult in Serie A because “there’s less space” than in Europe.

The Bianconeri have taken just five points from their opening six games in the League, but lead their Champions League group after wins over Sevilla and Manchester City.

“It’s more difficult in Italy,” Morata told Cadena Cope.

“There’s less space. It’s better in Europe. It [the win over Sevilla] was a great result for us. Everything is fine with [Coach Massimiliano] Allegri.”

Real Madrid retain a buyback option on the forward, which could be exercised this summer, with suggestions Juventus will offer a renewal which would remove that agreement.

“It’s still early, there’s a whole season to go. I’m calm, I’m just thinking about playing. I’m focused on playing, and my family and my agent will deal with the rest.

“If the Coach is happy with me, then I’m happy too.”
